The Audigy card, while popular, does not have very good FireWire capabilities. Creative decided to not follow the IEEE1394 standards and instead created their own (SB1394).  While the newer cards (AudigyII) seem to be better, you may find that your card does not work with the iPod. Try a different card.

Next: I’ve read that a lot of Firewire cards for PCs don’t work with the iPod.  What are some cards that [I]do[/I] work?

Previous: I organize my music on my PC in specific folders that I’ve become accustomed to.  On my old MP3 Player I could just recreate these folders. Why can’t I do this on the iPod? It seems it’s all about tags.
