IEEE 1394a FireWire PCI Express Host Adapter
Installation Guide
1. Introduction
Thank you for purchasing this IEEE 1394 FireWire PCI Express
Card. It is specially designed to connect 1394 devices to any
Computers via the PCI Express expansion slots. It provides
“hot-plug”, “Peer-to-Peer” and “Live insertion and removal”
features for the IEEE 1394 peripherals.
Features:
9 Fully IEEE1394 OHCI compliance
9 PCI Express Base Specifications 1.0a Compliant, 2.5Gbps
(250Mbytes/sec) Transfer Rate
9 Up to 400Mbits/sec IEEE 1394 transfer rate
9 1 external 6-pin IEEE 1394 connector
9 Optional Ulead VideoStudio Software Bundled

IEEE1394 devices to the host adapter using either 6-to-6-pin or
6-to-4-pin IEEE1394 cables.

3. Software Support
The following table lists the current OS support of the IEEE 1394 PCI
Express Host Adapter. The IEEE 1394 drivers are bundled in the OS
kernel. It does not need any additional driver to make it work (except
the Win98SE and Mac OS 8.6 may need some updates from their web
site):
3. Installing the IEEE 1394a Host Adapter
1.
Turn the system power OFF before installation!
2.
Use static electricity discharge precautions.
Remove possible static discharge potential from any objects that
the host adapter may come in contact with before installation.
This can be accomplished by touching a bare metal chassis rail
after you have turned off the power.
3.
Remove the chassis cover from your computer
4.
Locate an unused PCI Express slot (typically white or black,
smaller than PCI slot) and remove the corresponding slot cover
from computer chassis.
5.
6.
Plug the IEEE 1394 Host Adapter to the unused PCI Express
expansion slot and attached the bracket to the computer chassis
screw.
Installing IEEE1394 cables
The IEEE 1394 host adapter has 1 external IEEE1394 connector.
There are two types of IEEE1394 cables can be attached to this
connector. One is a 6-to-6-pin cable (usually used for storage
devices like hard drives and CDR/W), and the other is a 6-to-4-pin
cable (usually used for a DV camcorder). The IEEE1394 cable
topology enables both branching and daisy-chainning of nodes.
Up to 63 devices can connected a host computer. No

file (or perform the Windows Update) from Microsoft Web site before
installing any IEEE1394 Devices ( you need to choose your own
language before downloading the file, wrong language selection
may cause problems in your win98SE):
