Pros: This works with firewire audio gear, Presonus Firebox. Nice card. Came with extra bracket for low profile. I use Studio One 2 DAW.

Win7 64 installed with no driver install- windows took care of it. I put the driver in legacy mode as the win7 driver is known to cause trouble with audio gear (latency problems). Path: /control panel/device manager/1394 firewire card/properties... its on my other computer, so that's as far as to the path I remember. its on one of the tabs. Good luck!

Cons: its not really fire that makes it go.

Other Thoughts: yeah, its a trip, the sound heavy rain makes on the roof of my car.

5 out of 5 eggsWoked fine

Pros: It worked fine until a lightning hit took out some components. Some were obviously burned, but although this card looked OK, the computer wouldn't work until I unplugged the card.

I used it with WinXP and Win7. I'll probably get an identical card to replace it -- unless I buy PCIe.

Cons: None.
