    So I bought this Firewire card used online the other day, and I'm trying to install it, but my system doesn't seem to be recognizing it (no Install New Hardware flag). Not only that, but when I try to manually install 1394 IEEE drivers, my computer says that it doesn't have any (I'm running WinXP Pro). No 1394 section shows up in my device manager, either. The website of the manufacturer says that in WinXP the drivers should already be there.

    So, I either need to know where to find 'em on my computer, or where to download 'em... or what ever the heck else I'm doing wrong. I know the firewire card is at least getting power, because I have a light up firewire cable that glows when I connect it.
