Dear Abdul,

I am very sorry, but we have no preferences for FireWire cards.

I do not know what your problem with "Zebtronics" card is. I do not know anything about this card, even which FireWire chip is mounted. It would also be helpful to know some more details about your problem.

If your problem consists of corrupted images:

The corrupted images are created due to interrupted image data transfer from FireWire into memory. If a laptop with Windows XP and Intel Duo Core CPU is in use, then the FireWire Performance Manager may fixes the problem. The interrupted data transfer is caused by power state changes of the CPU. (Which does not change so much, if it has a high work load!). The FireWire Performance Manager can be downloaded for free from:


The current version of the FireWire Performance Manager has only an effect on laptops with Windows XP. It wont work in Windows Vista. It also has no effect on desktop computers.

If a desktop computer is in use, then an exchange of the FireWire board against another one with a different chipset (e.g. VIA, TI, agere, NEC...) may fixes the problem. The problem may is caused by an incompatibility between the FireWire chip and the currently used ****** board.
