how do i get firewire (ieee 1394) running on virtual anything?

Discussion in 'Windows 64bit' started by charles kuchar, Jan 28, 2010.

  1. I got a nikon LS-4000 slide scanner with a firewire output. I have a
    firewire port on my dg45id motherboard with an e8400 processor and 8g of
    ram. I am running windows 7 ultimate. the only software is for the vista.
    I am running virtual XP, virtual 2000, virtual 98se. I do have windows ME
    but I try and stay away from that operating system. I can plug and unplug
    my firewire connection and I get a beep out of the computer but nothing in
    device manager shows up. I checked the bios in windows 7 and the firewire
    is enabled. don't know where to turn to next other than nikon is working on
    drives for windows 7. charlie

  2. I do not think you can access firewire on any virtual machine.

    Have you tried

  3. There are no virtualization solutions that support Firewire that I'm aware
    of. As for not having Win7 drivers, you could try installing Vista drivers
    IF there are 64-bit ones. Otherwise, you'll need to use a different computer
    for your scanner until Nikon gets its act together.

  4. finally found a post where the user was able to get the scanner working on
    vista and there were comments that some users were able to get windows 7
    working also. did the instructions and now I have the scanner working on
    the laptop with vista SP2.
    I certainly am getting experience in the virtual pc's. charlie
