Hi, my new PC has 1394 card and come with a video
editing software.  Now the video editing software
failed to work, and I goto the web site of the company,
they said their software will only work with
microsoft 1394 driver and I need to remove the current
TI 1394 driver. So I goto device manager, and remove
the TI 1394 driver. Then I tried to add new hardware
, the computer find the 1394 card and give me no option
and immediately install the TI 1394 driver again.
I guess maybe I should totally remove the TI 1394
driver from hard disk in order to have computer prompt
me a choice.  But how can I do that? I don't know
the filename for the driver.

Thanks.

With the old driver installed open the device manager and then find the device -- right click on it --> then click on the driver tab on the top of the properties menu --> then use the update driver button in the lower right to add the new driver.
