Topic: Fireface800 and Lacie firewire 800 pci card
I have a fireface800 and was using it with Lacie firewire 800 pci card with windows xp and Nuendo. I just built a new Windows 7 i7 950 PC with Gigabyte x58A-ud5 v2.0 motherboard with Texas Instruments firewire chipset.
My new PC has firewire 400, but no firewire 800. It does have a PCI slot for the Lacie firewire 800 PCI card.
Should I still use the Lacie card or should I get a Firewire 400 cable and plug the Fireface to the Firewire 400 port on the back of the PC?
Does the Fireface work as well with firewire 400 as it does with firewire 800?
Does the Lacie PCI card have Windows 7 drivers?
Does the Lacie PCI card even need Windows 7 drivers?
