Windows 7 and Fire wire problem

If we upgraded  Dell XPS 420 from Vista to 7, fire wire does not work. Is there any solution?

Solution:

The 1394 bus driver that is included with Windows 7 replaces the 1394 bus drivers that were included with earlier versions of Windows. refer this site for details

We can try the following steps to fix our issue, This will solved the initial problems with a Maxtor III OneTouch drive.

  • Click the Start Button, type devmgmt.msc in the “Start Search” box and press Enter.
  • Expand the "IEEE 1394 Bus Host Controllers" node in the device tree on the right hand pane.
  • Right click the host controller node select "Update driver software ..."
  • Select "Browse my computer for driver software"
  • Select "let me pick from a list of device driver on my computer ..." and Check the box before “Show compatible hardware”.
  • Choose the second option---1394 OHCI Compliant Host Controller (Legacy), and click next to update the driver.
