Important Note: These PCIe-to-FireWire adapter cards are tested with the FireWire driver included with Windows 7. When installing the cards, Windows will automatically use the built-in driver. To avoid unexpected behavior, DO NOT UPDATE THE DRIVER from the manufacturer's software disk or website, even if instructed to do so by the documentation included with the adapter cards.
