Power up desktop computer.
3. Windows Software Installation
Execute ubCore.exe program in driver CD E:\ 1394b_FireWire800 \TI \WinXP_SP2
\ Win2000_XP_2003 for Windows drivers or follow instructions below to have
800Mbps transfer rate on Windows XP Service Pack 2 &3.
1. Go to \Windows\Driver cache\i386 and rename sp2.cab to sp2_100.cab (or
rename sp3.cab to sp3_100.cab for XP SP3)
2. Go to Device Manager, IEEE 1394 Bus Host controller , Properties, Driver, Driver
Update. Select 'No, not this time', 'Install from a list or specific location
(advanced)', click 'Next', select 'Don't search I will choose the driver to install',
click 'Next', then 'Have Disk'. Now point to driver CD E:\ 1394b_FireWire800 \TI
\WinXP_SP2 Then continue.
3. Windows will now ask for the path to the file 1394.inf and ohci1394.sys and
1394bus.sys. It wants to install the newer ones (see above). Again point to driver
CD E:\ 1394b_FireWire800 \TI \WinXP_SP2
4. Windows will ask to overwrite the new file? Please select YES and continue
5. Go to Device Manager, IEEE 1394 Bus Host controller , Properties, Driver, Driver
Details, and verify that all driver files are from SP2 except the ohci1394.sys and
1394bus.sys, which are from SP1.
6. Finally you can go to C:\Windows\Driver cache\i386 and rename sp2_100.cab
back to sp2.cab (or rename sp3_100.cab back to sp3.cab on XP SP3). Windows
will no longer try to copy the newer driver file until you do a reinstall of the
FireWire controller driver.
