That board is using a VIA 6315N Firewire controller chip. If reverting to the legacy firewire drivers doesn't help you really should consider buying a standard PCI/PCIe firewire card with a Texas Instruments controller chip instead and disable the integrated VIA controller in the BIOS. That should solve it.
framed noise: do you have any suggestions for a new firewire card. how do I know if the firewire card uses a texas instruments controller chip?
>how do I know if the firewire card uses...
Find brands and models at online vendors, such as newegg, then google to find the MAKER of the brand/model you are considering, and read the specifications at the maker's web site... if newegg does not include the information in their description
Sorry, can't give you any direct links since I'm not in the US but usually you can look up the product ID on the manufacturers website and looks for clues there. Some vendors list the chip set but most don't unless directly listed as a feature by the manufacturer. Also look on the pictures of the board if they have any, the VIA logotype is easy to recognize, but stay clear of Jmicron chips too.
here is what i bought: http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0247303
its a powered firewire 800 pci card.
uses the texas instrument driver. still isnt doing the job for me.
i did however check my resource monitor and come to find that only half of my processors are working during export!!!!!!!! that might be a problem?
if there is a cheaper firewire card out there please let me know guys. this is the only one that i could find that stated in the description that it used the TI Controller Chipset.
firewire 800 can be more problematic especially is its dual chip (800+ 400) or 800+USB
standard firewire 400 with TI chipset like Siig, belkin, startech.
Its only Firewire 800 ports. It does have power to the card. and im using a 9pin to 6pin converter to get down to firewire 400 into the canon xhg1.
well i purchased ANOTHER SIIG PCI Express x1 card from newegg.com. unfortunately exporting to tape still doesnt work with premiere.
although I did try to export to tape with sony vegas pro 9.0 and it works! amazing.
so i think im going to cut my losses and headaches and just adjust my workflow to export to tape using Sony Vegas for now. maybe someday adobe wont be so stubborn with compatibility.
