Firewire controller on mobo not showing up in device manager
Posted on 2004-04-04
Asus P4C800E deluxe motherboard
XP pro sp1 with some sp 2 updates.
I fifnally have a firewwire device and when i plugged it into the port on the back of the mobo, nothing happend. the IPod didnt show up ,iTunes didnt show it as being connected. There is power to the port as the iPod showed itwas charging. I do remember seeing the 1394 hostcontroller in device manager after i installed the mobo ( 5 months ago)but the IEEE1394 controller is now nowwhere to be seen under 'system devices' or anywhere else for that matter. I tried refreshing hardware and i tried install new hw and every combination thereof. New hardware requires drivers or have disk and i came up blank there.
This motherboard does have onboard ieee1394 controller so how do i get XP to recognize it/install it ? Have i missed anything?
