Dear all,

Have this card bought and installed on my hack, after reading several recommendations, that it would work plug&play.
Problem is: it doesn't.
Tried several external firewire HD's attached to the card, both FW400 and FW800 ; they are not mounted in Finder.
Also not visible in Disk Utility.
I have connected power from power supply into the card in my hack.
Tried disabling the FW400 connector on the mobo in bios: no solution.

Any thoughts ?
Maybe an extra kext needed ?

Check that you actually got what you paid for and not a substitute.

OMG, so in the end, i seem to have bought the wrong type of Syba card.
I really thought i checked dozens of times on internet that the card i have now would work.
Guess, gonna buy that other Syba card then ..

I want to really thank you for your help P1LGRIM !!
