Will original Lightphase back work on new machine?

I have one of the original Lightphase backs (serial # bb00***). It came with a special firewire card which we connected to a G3 mac. Connecting it directly to a newer G5's firewire apparently doesn't work for me. Can I just pull out the card from the G3, stick it into the G5, and it will work? Also, I'm using Lightphase software and I'd like to upgrade. Which software is compatible with this back?

Thank You

Just the BB00 is very special, there is very few left in the market place.
With this there is some quirks since the firewire standard was not completely in place at that point.
1. Only works in 12volt mode
2. not OHCI compliant.

Note that the software is compatible....
