Verifying the Hardware Installation
After connecting the IEEE 1394 (FireWire) PCI card and Ikebana™ IEEE 1394 External DVD-R/RW product to the

panel. In the [System Properties] window, select the [Device Manager] tab. If you can find a new Disk Drive Icon
(Ikebana™), an IEEE 1394 / FireWire® bus controller icon, and SBP2 icon, you have successfully installed both the drive
and the IEEE 1394 interface card as Windows OS recognizes both devices.
