Thursday, August 06, 2009 9:14 PMI have a new HP and since I installed Windows 7 my firewire will not work and the diagnostic test says the following:
PCI LocationPCI bus 1, device 5, function 01394 Bus Reset TestTest Started 8/6/2009 1:25:06 PMWarning MessageBus 0, Internal return code 0, Error code 08/6/2009 1:25:06 PMTest FinishedInternal Error8/6/2009 1:25:07 PM
It worked fine in Vista Home Premium
Here are some other specs
-Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q6700 @ 2.66GHz
-8 GB DDR2-SDRAM (PC2-6400 / 800 MHz)
System BoardChipsetIntel G31/G33/P31/P35SouthbridgeIntel 82801IR (ICH9R)ManufacturerPEGATRON CORPORATIONProductBeniciaHP Model No m9340f
Everything else passes. Device Manager is showing the Controller installed and working properly. I checked the driver and it appears to be the most current. However I have not checked the drivers for the Mother Board and Chipset as I don't want to create more severe problems by messing with those drivers. Like I said, all other hardware is functioning without problem. Anyone have any ideas?

Tuesday, September 22, 2009 12:46 PMIt was tested on build 7600.
Sunday, November 01, 2009 10:53 PMI'm sorry but I am not sure how to find that driver. It is using 1394ohci.sys.
I am not sure how to gain access to win RTM build 7600. I am using build 7100
Sunday, November 01, 2009 11:04 PMFound it and installed it and PASSED. Thank you kindly :)
Monday, November 02, 2009 8:45 PMGlad it worked for you ;-)

"Those who are trying to get firewire interfaces working (without success) may find the following steps useful: it’s what I had to do to get mine up and running.
Right click on the firewire host controller entry in the device manager and choose Update Driver Software…
Browse my computer for driver software
Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer
Select 1394 OHCI Compliant Host Controller (Legacy) and then Next"

Try changing your firewire driver. There's 3 drivers bundled in windows 7, change the driver to the one that has (Legacy) at the end of the name.
I already tried it and some other drivers to. Windows 7 Ultimate x64 manages to recognize my external drive, but after copying some bigger files the data transfer speed dops to zero and I can't abort the copying process. So it's more or less stuck until I unplug my drive.
My FireWire interface consits of this PCI express card:
This is my external drive:
I know that the FireWire of the drive works, because I also tested it on my old computer who has built in FireWire. When I tested the card with Vista x86 I had the same issues.
What's wrong and how can I fix it?
Tuesday, December 08, 2009 8:40 AMThank you very much. That fixed my issue on Windows 7 Professional 64-bit.
Wednesday, December 30, 2009 4:04 AMThanks PC_Tester!
Tuesday, March 23, 2010 9:24 PMLegacy driver worked for me, thank you!
Friday, April 02, 2010 9:00 AMCan anyone explain why the Legacy driver is "better" that the standard driver in this context?

A HP driver had finally gotten rid of my headache!
I do not have a HP computer but the driver still works!
The legacy driver did not work for; the uninstall/install does not work for but the HP driver did!!
