    I'm having a problem with my Orangelink firewire card not working. I installed it into a PCI slot a few weeks ago, and it successfully transfered video from the camcorder to computer. Up until about last week, I had experienced freezing at the Windows screen during bootup a couple of times, and finally found out that it was because of the firewire card as indicated in device manager ("This device is either not present, not working properly, or does not have all the drivers installed. (Code 10)"). I then installed the card into another PCI slot, and it corrected the problem immediately. However, after a couple of boots the problem occurred again. I have tried all the available drivers and have my BIOS updated. The manual says that the problem might be due to a conflict with another device; however, device manager and system configuration doesn't list any specific conflict errors.

    Anyone know what's wrong?

    Don't buy no-name firewire cards. It probably died.

    It still works because I was able to transfer video last night. I thought Orange Micro was a good brand for firewire cards? I've read nothing but positive reviews for them.
