PT800CE-A reboots when firewire device connected

Threaded View
ECS Pt800ce-a motherboard w/ VIA chipset
1024 + 256 MB DDR400 RAM
60GB hard drive
P4 3.0 GHz processor
Adaptec Firewire Card

Firewire Device:
Presonus Firepod 24bit/96khz recording interface

Problem: Computer works PERFECTLY with all cards installed. The
firepod has a red led that turns blue if its synced up properly. Now,
I plug the firepod into the firewire card and the red light turns
blue. Its only a matter of minutes before the light turns red again
and the computer either freezes or restarts itself. I've replaced the
firewire card twice, ran a memtest, ran a hard drive test, installed
motherboard monitor, installed service pack 2, and tried a million
other things. Running out of ideas. Any suggestions?

Disable Windows' "Startup and Recovery", "Automatically
Reboot" setting (if you hadn't already).  Then if you see a
bluescreen, write down the stop code and it can be
researched on MS' website.

Have you tried a newer driver for the card or Firepod (if
they exist)?   It might help to list at least the most
(seemingly) significant of the million other things tried so
people can move on to other suggestions.
