    Default X38-DQ6 firewire problems

    I have the x38-dq6 with the F4 bios and i get a Code 10 (this device cannot start) error in Vista Device manager. Here is a list of troubleshooting steps i have done so far

    1. flash to F5f and F5g beta bios....no go
    2. install xp pro...no go
    3. go back to F4 bios and cleared the cmos, removed the cmos battery, wait 10 min, re-insert battery...no go
    4. replaced the motherboard...got another one from NCIX....no go
    5. allowed Vista to search for new driver....i reports the most up to date driver is already installed

    I am convinced that this first production X38-DQ6 rev 1.0 has an issue with the firewire controller

    Any suggestions, aside from getting ride of this "motherboard" and going with Asus.

    I know that my external drive works...it has no problems on my nForece 4 board

    These are my specs

    Q6600 G0 running at stock 2.4 (266 x 9)
    4 gb of ddr2-667 Samsung ram (4 x 1GB) at 5-5-5-15 at 1.8V
    Nvidia 8800 GTS 640
    WD 320 SATA x 2
    Pioneer A212 SATA DVD/RW x 2
    Seasonic 550 W power supply
    Vista Business

    Please let me know what to try

    Vista Device manager picks up the Texas instruments firewire controller, but says Device cannot start (code 10)

    Trying to update the driver, Vista says that the latest drivers are already installed

    OK, i just powered down, removed the ram in slots 1,3 and rebooted...same problem Code 10 under the firewire entry

    Tried ram in slots 2, 4 and the exact same message

    This is getting very frustrating...as i need to access the files on the external firewire harddirve

    Does this answer solve my problem

    I bought this "top of the line" motherboard from Gigabyte, and now you tell me to use another computer, because you cannot solve my problem

    Is this what to expect from Gigabyte

    The firewire hdd is a Lacie 750 GB

    Sorry for jumping conclusions

    Yes this is indeed the firewire harddrive, and it works without any problems on the older ASUS nForce4 motherboard...the gigabyte gives me the firewire code 10 error in the device manager

    any thoughts

    Hi kali

    I think you already enable your IEEE 1394 function in BIOS.
    And install driver correct.

    I find some information for you. can you try it?

    And I get F5i BIOS, If you want to try it please mail me

    janus.yeh@gigabyte.com.tw

    Thank you.

    Janus
