VISTA Ultimate. Does it support Firewire 800?
I am installing a 1T My Book external HD. One of the connection options
that are available is Firewire 800 which would be considerably faster than
either USB2 or Firewire 400.

2 questions:
1) Does VISTA support it? I heard it does not currently support it.
2) If VISTA supports it, is any one aware of any Firewire 800 cards that
have VISTA drivers available?

Thanks

Dunc

I don't believe Vista supports FW 800 at the moment. I'm not entirely sure
it supports FW 400 properly now you come to mention it. The performance of
FW400 drives in Vista suck compared to the same drive connected to XP, for
example, which in turn isn't all it can be (but at least, doesn't "suck")
compared to the same drive (I own a busy little set of drives don't I?)
connected to a Mac.
