We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of a standalone legacy 1394 OHCI (FireWire) package for Windows 8/8.1.
Starting with Windows 7, we’ve been providing native support for a 1394 driver stack that is based on the Windows Driver Framework (WDF). And this driver stack supports the legacy 1394 (aka 1394a) and 1394b interfaces.
With the introduction of this new standalone WDF-based 1394 driver, we decided to remove native support for the legacy 1394 stack from Windows 8.
We’ve been monitoring Answers Forum very closely. The feedback from our customers, shows that some 1394 peripherals are not working as effectively on 1394b systems, and this has led to the desire to publish the standalone legacy 1394 driver.
You sent us feedback and we listened.
Please help us by responding to this blog post, to let us know whether or not our suggestions worked for your setup.
