Important Note:

IEEE-1394a compatible Firewire interface is supported for Win 7. However, Win 8 and 10 support is not guaranteed. Microsoft has dropped support for the components in the 1394 drivers which enable legacy mode, something that is often required to assure a particular card functions properly with Omni or PCC converters for parallel port devices.
