I am trying to connect an xp machine to a windows 7 machine to transfer files. I have a firewire cable connected to both machines. In xp the firewire connection is there but in windows 7 it is not. If I go to Device Manager, the 1394 host controller is there but when I go to network connections there is just the ethernet.

How would I go about "installing" the connection or somehow enabling it?
