You obviously seem to think that the problem is with the firewire  
ports of this motherboard. My advice is to prove the point - pull  
another PCI cards, install a 10 firewire card & try using that.

You don't have to consider this a permanent solution, but it's a good  
way to troubleshoot. If you get the same problem with the PCI  
firewire card then maybe the m/board isn't to blame. If you can get  
the PCI firewire card working then maybe it'll help you do the same  
with the onboard firewire.

Stroller.
