      Comments about SIIG 3-Port Combo FireWire-800/400 Cardbus (PCMCIA) Adapter:

      I purchased the card to work with video downloads and hard drive back-ups. Well, after five times installing the software, it finaly functions. But you can't use it to download camera videos to a hard drive that is connected to the card. It will not work with firewire 800 devices without it's own drivers that are incompatable with the Microsoft drivers for firewire 400 video downloads. So, it is shut down, start up, swap drivers, download to the computer, shut down start up, swap drivers, move files to hard drive. Boring doesn't begin to describe it. had to purchase a power supply additionally also and that wasn't mentioned in the information either. It accepts both 400 and 800 cables, but you can't use both at the same time.

          The cards worked good except our application required the SIIG, NN-ADA011-S1 Power Adapter, which you do not carry.
