    I just recently purchased a Firewire 3-Port PCI Card for my Dell 8250. I opened up my comp and inserted the card into the empty PCI slot, hooked up the golden edge connectors to mainframe etc. Yet when I restart my comp (IM running XP)my comp does not read any new drivers??? What did I do wrong? I really need help, thanx in advance.

    Now what do ya mean by "my comp does not read any new drivers"? :confused:
    Does the card show up in the Device Manager? :?:

    Wiggo is right. Your new card should show up as an IEEE 1394 bus host controller or something similar.

    You did not install a drive but some firewire ports. The card should show up in device manager.
    If you think you know what I know and think you see what I see, than why are you asking me questions?
