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.
