My money would be on the firewire card. Your symptoms sound similar  
to those I saw with the onboard firewire on one of my systems. A  
different FireWire card (WD one bundled with a drive that I got ages  
ago) and the FW port on my Audigy sound cards all work great though  
(currently using the Audigy's port in production).
