I've noticed that it was assigned as drive M (not sure why) and since drive M was assigned earlier as my external music drive it probably caused a conflict.

 

 


 

 

A drive letter conflict is a known bug in Windows that Microsoft has no intention of fixing.  Glad to hear you got it working.

Would this device from Cables2Go work?

I have a Dell D630 and a Toshiba A7, but they only have the smaller 4-pin 1394. Would the extreme firewire still work?

 

thanks!


 

 

No, it will not work.  The extra 2 pins provide power.  And, since this reader is bus powered and not self powered, it needs those 2 extra pins.

Thank you! Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
