After you update your computer to Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2), the performance of your 1394a or 1394b FireWire devices may be greatly decreased. A digital camera that uses S400 speed is an example of such a device.

This problem occurs if you connect a 1394a or 1394b FireWire device to a 1394b port. This problem occurs because Windows XP SP2 changes 1394b ports to S100 speed when you upgrade.

Install this update to help prevent this issue. After you install this update, you will have to restart your computer.

Thanks for the post. I hadn't experienced this with the 1394 as of yet with SP2, it's still smoking fast.

I am glad You liked the info...btw...MP3Mogul...maybe You "think" You havent experienced that...because You were used to that "smoking fast" speed, not knowing that its not the fastest speed at which it should operate...so update Your SPs...and You will experience REALLY FAST world of electrons...

LOL... Thanks WinThusiast.. I did, and there's no difference. Perhaps it just affects certain 1394 cards..... my is a separate card, no built onto the board.... But there was no difference... (I WISH IT WAS!)

I know, I know...was just joking...its probably like You said....that it affects only some certain cards...and Yours isnt one of them...sorryyyyyyyyyyyy.... But anyway...if its fast enough already then You have nothing to worry at all...

Huhhhh...tough one...You wish for Your card to be even faster!?? Well...there is posibility...in case You own 1394a card...You may sell it...and buy 1394b version...which would double Your current speeds (800Mbps vs. 400Mbps)...but in case You already have 800Mbps version....then You are burned...no more speed gains 4 You 4 some time...until quantum computers emerge...hopefully soon...

Just tweak the machine a little bit...I am sure You may get some 2-3% faster speeds...there is always some reserve there...but the question is if You will be satisfied with such poor increase...

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2005 to You also! Let All Your Secret Wishes Come True!
