5 out of 5 eggs Power and Windows 7 driver 11/17/2013

This review is from: VANTEC 3-Port FireWire 400 PCIe Host Card Model UGT-FW200

Pros: Easy to install. Works!

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: I installed on an HP 1370 desktop.
Windows 7 64-bit.

The Hardware Installation section in the User Manual says "Connect the system power source to the board's power connector." My machine had a connector dangling from the wire harness coming from the power supply, which I connected to the Vantec board.

Vantec's pretty pictorial installation guide shows steps 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8 - no step 5. And no mention of the power connector. I did not try the board without the power connection.

For my Samsung SCD23 video camera (circa 2003), it is necessary to replace the IEEE driver with the Legacy driver. You do that in Properties/Update Driver in Control Panel/Administrative Tools/Computer Management/Device Manager.
