Ciao,

I have 10.7.5 system correctly installed on a D820 nvidia, everything is working but the firewire card is only detected by System Profiler but not working.

Is there any way to get it work?

The card is a O2 micro Firewire (Vendor ID 1217 - Device ID 00f7).

I  have the same problem and just posted about it.  (I beleive my machine is a sister machine to yours and is almost identical ok it might be a D830, can't remember - but mine is the Dell D630).  There is supposely a fix to get the PCMCIA Cardreader working. 

 

search "Chun-Nan_PCMCIA kext"

 

Theoretically you could then find a firewire card that works with macosx to get drivers etc.  Hope this helps in some small way. - Thanks!

I did some tests some months ago on SL 10.6.8 or Lion. I could get PCMCIA to work but at the expense of networking so quickly gave up. Try a search on the forum, I can't remember how long ago that was but it had to do with some audio or video accessory for a German user.
