As firewire has been added to alsa, the alsa firewire drivers are loaded 
instead. So you should be able to see your device as an alsa device (check 
arecord -l). I have heard (though I have no FW HW) that the old FW drivers 
may still be more stable, but to use them you need to blacklist the alsa 
FW module(s) so that the old style FW kernel modules can load.
