    Any work arounds/better drivers for speeding this up on an early 08 Macbook Pro? I've been searching around here and elsewhere without a whole lot of luck. The FW800 on my MBP in 64 bit Vista is ridiculously slow...

    Thinking I may delete all the drivers and see what Windows does from there, unfortunately I can't test it at the moment as I'm running something through there...very...slowly...at this rate I'll be done around this time tomorrow.

    Any help/ additional info would be appreciated.

    I concur.

    I tried deleting the drivers, after which I think Vista x64 took it's own default drivers(?) and the same results were thrown right at me.

    Would appreciate if you shared a work-around, if you get one, that is. :cool:

    Well it's not the like drivers Apple provides are very good (or new) in the first place.
