Belkin just got back to me and says that the FireWire ExpressCard F5U505 is not compatible with MacBook Pro.
That's weird because it was working fine until I popped it out of hte slot and then couldn't pop it back in.
Here's my email into Belkin support:

Just because it`s not supported does not mean it does not work.
It works. It just does not stay in the slot.
I guess it`s a MacBook Pro hardware problem. Just wanted you to help me rule out a problem with the card.
But it sounds like you don`t do that.

To me, it just sounds like a "It's not my job" type of answer. And I hate that.
After a visit to TechSuperpowers in Boston, it has been determined that the I/O port on the MacBook Pro is bad. It's being replaced.
