    i posted a while back about needing help running and editing my dad's video
    from his camcorder onto my PC. i have an IBM clone, WinXP, with a lot of
    disk space and RAM.

    so, i tried just connecting the USB cable from the CAM to my PC, but this
    only allows me to work with digital still pics.

    so, i followed someone's advice, and bought a firewire card and cable, and
    after installing the card, i boot my PC and nothing happens! the PC won't
    boot. so, i tried resetting the card, and my PC still wouldn't boot, and
    then I put it in a diferent PCI slot, but same thing - my PC doesn't boot.

    so, i took the card out, and presto, my PC boots!

    does anyone have any ideas? i'm using a Belkin Firewire 3 Port PCI card.

    thanks!

    Get the feeling the 'new' card may be a dud.
    Are you able to try it in another PC?

    Cheers
