Apple does like taking features away from us. Maybe the removed the Firewire driver from the x86 version of Mac OS X you are using.

Which version of Mac OS X has this problem?

Maybe we can diagnose this issue and figure out a work around. What is your host operating system? Does this card show up in your BIOS setup?

The only work around for this issue involves using a reciprecating saw on your case. Something I bet you rather not do :)

Excellent job with being able to access real hardware from your VM.
