How to communicate with Firewire card - DP Firewire 800 PCIe (NN-FW0012-S1)

Hello everyone,


Recently I purchased Fire wire card 1394b 800mb/s - DP Firewire 800 PCIe (NN-FW0012-S1) from SIIG (Manufacturer). Would like to communicate with this Firewire card using LabVIEW Software. need to know how to initialize the card and create a handle for sending and receiving the data. It would be great if you send some example VIs for this.


Please help to make a communication with Fire wire card and let me know if you need more information.


Thanks for your support in advance.

When you plug in the card and start MAX (Measurement and Automation eXplorer), does the card show up in Devices and Interfaces (it might show up under Network Devices)?  


I have a colleague using LabVIEW with some cameras connectted to a Firewire interface.  I'm not "in" today, but if you haven't gotten a definitive answer by this evening, I'll check out his lab tomorrow.

Hi Bob Schor,


As I said earlier, Firewire card was purchased from SIIG(Manufacturer). Since It is third party device, will this device get detected in NI MAX?



Thanks for your support in advance.
