Cannot find Firewire connection for external Harddrive

    I have an external enclosure which houses a new Hitachi 80 GB Harddrive.
    When I use the USB output to the computer, it sees the Harddrive.

    Yet, when I use the Firewire on the external drive and the computer, it does
    not see it.

    I do not know whether I should use the Control panel to add hardware for the
    Firewire and if yes, what should I look for?

    I have used different Firewire cables, same negative results.

    This is with Windows XP and a 1.1 AMD, 512 MB RAM.
