so the problem is inside my notebook?

That's a real big problem, the biggest one...1000 euro, damn it!
But is it a chipset problem or a driver related to this chipset?
Thanks a lot for your help!

The FireWire controller itself is OK (it's essentially the same as the
TSB43AB23), but the PCIe/PCI bridge is buggy and can corrupt data under
*very* high load.  (As far as I know, this has not yet been reported for
any real-world application.)  TI has discontinued this chip.

The XIO2213B is lucky to have a later revision of the bridge.
