I have tried 3 different IEEE 1394 host controllers on my Piv computer with winxp and cannot get them to install. I have tried all available pci slots and even downloaded drivers which I should not need , and when I try to install I get this message "Problem installing this device. IEEE 1394 host controller. anerror occurred during the installation of the device. The data is invalid." can anyone help me with this one?

Make sure that anti-virus apps are disabled, close all open apps.
Try installing MS application compatiblility fixes if they mention your particular card.
Depending on your system, try limiting RAM through "msconfig" to 256MB if you have installedmore until after installation.
Are you having any other probs with CDRW/CDROM reading data? Try using a cleaner.
