PCI Firewire card will not recognize camera

Hi there,

I recently installed Osx86 on my computer and everything appeared to be working pretty much perfectly. However today when I wanted to give Final Cut Pro a spin I realized that the system was not recognizing my camcorder.

I have a Nec based PCI firewire 1394 card and when the camera is on and plugged in, system profiler says it is there:

FireWire Bus:


Maximum Speed: Up to 400 Mb/sec




Manufacturer: Panasonic

Model: 0x828209

GUID: 0x80458210C3725B

Maximum Speed: Up to 100 Mb/sec

Connection Speed: Up to 100 Mb/sec


AG-DVX100B Unit:

Unit Software Version: 0x10001

Unit Spec ID: 0xA02D


However in the PCI cards tab it says no cards installed and no camera shows up in finder and final cut pro says there is no device hooked up.

Running OSx10.5.2


any help would be greatly appreciated


As a new user of osx86 (sorry about that) I may be naive about certain simple fixes.
