I am getting the error in device manager under "1394 Net
Adapter". Is there something wrong with the hardware? I
have formatted the h/d and reinstalled XP and the problem
persists. The 1394 Bus Host Controller is running fine
I have already tried removing the card both physically and
removing the drivers. Neither solution worked. As for the
drivers, it is IEEE and XP has the drivers. There aren't
any drivers on disk, or even ones available anywhere else
for that matter.
I am not using the card for networking. I am trying to use
it to download video taken on a Sony D8 camcorder. Because
I am not using the device for networking, it isn't on the
list of possible network connections.
I am using a SurfBoard SB4100 Cable Modem through the USB
port and that connection is golden. I also have a AMR
(Audio Modem Riser) modem installed, but am not using it.

has the exclaimation mark in the yellow triangle over the
icon of the adapter. When I click on the icon to see what
the problem is, that's when I see that it says: This
device cannot start (Code 10).
I'm wondering why the card is acting like a network
adapter in the first place. But since it is, why is there
I do have the the nic1394.sys driver installed. When I do
a windows update, there aren't any new updates available.
When I try reinstalling the driver, it says: There was a
problem installing this hardware: 1394 Net Adapter This
device cannot start. (Code 10)
Sorry for the long message, just wanted to make sure you
get the whole picture. Thanks!
