    Since I'm running from forum room to forum room doing some spring cleanup, thought I'd throw this out there:

    Got that cheap Dynex firewire card people have been talking about off of ebay.

    Plugged 'er in.... get a "firewire bus" yadda yadda box in "About this Mac" and plug in a drive.... no joy. Gets power, but no mounting at all.

    Any thoughts? Bad card?

    Probably not a Texas Instruments (TI) chipset. Or maybe something else again.
