I'm trying to make my external firewire hard drive accessible in MS DOS 7.1 I've been able to access external USB 2.0 hard drive, but I have not been able to locate the drivers for 1394.

I've been doing some reading, and it appears that used to have a zip file titled, which contained the necessary drivers to make FireWire work in DOS. Unfortunately it appears that his particular zip file is no longer hosted on Dataoptics' site, and doesn't seem available anywhere else as well.

Was wondering if anyone had a link to where this file might still live?

Thanks Jolicloud,

I've tried bootable disk created by dat.exe, but it does not recognize my FireWire controller, although the USB function on the bootable floppy works fine. I'm wondering if there is another version of the drivers SBP2ASPI.SYS and NJ32DISK.SYS that might work with my hardware. It seems that many people have posted questions about these files not working with their FireWire, but it does not appear that anyone has found a solution. (some of the posts are ten years old!)

I'll appreciate any info or suggestions that anyone may have.
