Firewire HD timing out

Ok guys, i have a western Digital My Book Home hooked up through a fire-wire PCI card (400). I have had no problems with transferring large files/large amounts of files from the hard drive on Windows Xp and Windows Vista. I just installed Windows 7 64 bit and I am trying to move files, I have tried importing music into itunes, and I have also tried installing items from this hard drive which I have been able to do just fine before. Now that I have tried this I have had issues with the hard drive timing out or freezing up and not responding anymore. I'm wondering if this has something to do with windows 7. I also was not able to install drivers from the driver disk for my motherboard, so I went on the Asus website and downloaded and installed all the drivers for the motherboard that were available. I wasn't happy that the disk said that the exe. file was not compatible because I knwo it contains drivers that work. Windows 7 also found drivers for everything through the install and updates. I have no missing drivers visible in the hardware manager either. At first I thought it was a South Bus problem, but I haven't seen any SMBUS problems or anything like that. Everything seems to be installed. I did plug it in through USB, and started importing files into itunes, but I haven't stressed tested this method yet. I would like to use firewire though, i feel that it is faster and at times more stable when it comes to video editing ect.

Can anyone help me with solving the problem?
