XP SP2 And Firewire Problems?

I only see two levels of user: one that is limited and one that has all privs. It is sufficient to install the operating system's old FireWire driver. Etc. According to MS a setting of 3 is expected to give the old behaviour of SP1 - which is not true. useful reference

With this, the Fireface 800 is still fully operational, just as if it were connected to a FireWire 400 interface (1394a). I have no way of knowing if this problem would still exist with a different PCI card, or even with a mobo with integrated 1394b. Only users working with three Firefaces could gain a bit more performance by using the old SP1, but might run into trouble at other places. So, congrats, problem solved!

When it starts up the mac see's it as a AVC device (just as a normal xp machine). When testing the Fireface 800, we found hardware errors of several manufacturers. More information on this topic

If you have installed Windows w/SP1 then these details will say date created 2002. Get this, he told me all of their 1394b controller cards require a 64-bit PCI slot in order to achieve full 1394b FW800 speeds!

They "complain" about not being able to find something via 2 yellow marks in the Device Manager for "Unibrain PC". terrorist, Jan 18, 2005 #15 D-Jam Member Messages: 36 I tried the windows update that was shown here.

So I then did the "real world" right click drag 'n "copy" and drag and "move" timed tests. Indeed OHCI does not clearly define 1394b (firewire 800). Anything to make it easier for people to apply it to their setups. All submitted content is subject to our Terms of Use.

If you plan on upgrading to SP2 (which patches many holes) then read on as you will need to do a couple of things prior to installing SP2. *Note I have You don't mention the specs of the drive that's in your external enclosure, so I'm going to assume that it is the WD1600JB you mention in your link.

For example, if the Windows File Protection service is enabled, it will not allow the 1394 drivers to be replaced.

PixeLINK. http://midsolutions.org/xp-sp2/xp-sp2-install-problems.html This approach should be less than $100 for the cable and card.

For Microsoft, at this time ‘correctly’ means switching to the slowest transfer mode s100, equaling 100Mbit per second, for reasons of safety and compatibility. This website contains names and marks of other companies. Then doing the right click and "copy here" for that folder (using the 1st one dragged over), 1394a was 2:24-2:30, 1394b was 1:46-1:43.

Even a version 1.0 PCIe x1 slot would have more than enough bandwidth for your 1394b card.

But I do have Ghost which can create an image. So since some of the cards are indeed 32-bit, and claim FW800, it would seem a 64-bit slot isn't really required.* So this all points to actual FW800 speeds being possible If SP3 does not need the fix, then why is it so slow? Like I said this fix needs to be tested on different machines with different firewire cards, but I bet this will cure most of the scratchamp headaches and dropouts for finalscratch

I made both Unibrain, and then the DM showed "1394b" and "FireWire 800" as a description for one of the areas, "1394 bus host controller".

There is supposed to be an entry for the camera when it is attached and configured correctly. I have had help from MS tech support dudes in India, so far 4 hours or so of phone time. The first helpful and successful assistance received via this forum will qualify the assisting person to be entered into a drawing where they may qualify to win a swell prize. Maybe they will feel the consumer control when everybody stays with XP SP1.Click to expand...

Back to SP1?

So is it necessary to uninstall SP2 to get back the previously achieved performance? I can't be the only person that's trying to use 1394b on XP SP2 or SP3.

Go to Windows\Driver Cache\i386\(this file will be SP1.cab if you installed windows with SP1, and will be driver.cab if you installed XP w/SP2. Yes, my password is: Forgot your password? With this, the throughput rises to good S400. So it makes sense to activate the driver cache security mechanism again.

Thread Status: Not open for further replies. It wants to install the newer ones (see above). Not anywhere near twice as fast and I didn't think it would be, but I still thought it would be faster than this, but it IS significantly faster. Even if Win7 was faster, I still can't use it due to all of my software, programs, and drivers only being for XP.
