Hi.

Okay, so recently I got a FW400 PCMCIA card to give me a dedicated buss for running FW400 devices off of, so that I could utilise the full potential of my FW800 external hard drive on the internal buss.

But, I've noticed that, when the FW400 PCMCIA card is connected, the connection speed on my FW800 internal buss drops down to FW400.

I am stumped, since as far as I know, this shouldn't happen, since both busses should be independent of each other.

As soon as I power down and remove the PCMCIA card, the internal buss speed goes back up to FW800.

Does anybody have any ideas why this is happening?

Thanks,
onlyone-jc.
