Hey everyone.

I need to know something, in my manuel for the 8500 DV it says nothing about installing the card with the power source "dealie" that connects to the floppy drive. It has four prongs and fits "Perfect." I use quotation marks because it seems like its meant to go there.

I put it on my card because my framerates dropped to all hell after a couple months use, and I thought that was the problem. So I put it in, and my frame rates are back to normal. But, my TV tuner says that it "Cannot start" but I got this message before my frame rates dropped.

So, in conclusion, could someone tell me if its a bad thing or a good thing to have that power connected to it?

Thanks in advance

Nevermind,

I found out it was to power FireWire stuff. Thanks anyway.
