I asked if there was anything special I needed to have installed on my PC, and was told "no". has anyone seen a usb 2.0 video camera?

I was on a dell m1530 and my SD card slot would only work as read only under windows 7, which is on the 1394 bus. The ATI drivers vary, but can easily be found on their site, start here . Consult the instruction manual of your camcorder for specific information.

Place the card somewhere safe and away from anything that may build up static, so not on a carpet. in fact, with the current problems with 1394, i don't expect it to be much use even in consumer devices for several more years. Same issue here. 64 bit and all quit. Hopefully this will sort the problem and we can get on with editing.

He had a camcorder which was a few years old and one which he had just bought. BTW the devmgmt.msc thing didn't seem to work on my computer, but regular Device Manger (in Control Panel under Hardware) works to do the same thing. I also have a spare firewire cardand it didn't work after I swapped it out either.Does anyone else have any advice?nap wrote:> well..

Western Digital states on their website that they do not have a current driver or firmware for their older HDs. Right click on OHCI Compliant IEEE 1394 host controller and then left click on Update driver . Is this a limitation of the driver in windows 7. If the camera appears intermittently, verify that the latest service pack has been installed for the operating system or upgrade to the latest operating system.

After hours spent in frustration it now works every time in a super fast way. https://www.daniweb.com/hardware-and-software/hardware/threads/52471/pc-won-t-recognize-camcorder-connection-via-firewire-help-please I'll get back to you's when i do. This stops the capture, but the camcorder appears to still be on and working!! Any of these may well have caused the problem.

Anysuggestions? i don't have to hit play/ff/rew/stop on the actual camcorder itself. connecting firewire between pcs has identical symptons. i know i should be running xp, but there's some software compatability that's forcing me to use 98 for a couple more months.

does anyone know how to make 98 recognise

i was only getting 1mb/s transfer! I rebooted and everything is fine now. If one goes bad, perhaps it affects theother.

how can we tell if the firewire ports are working?

The problem was when I went to output the finished project to my camera (Sony DCR-TRV730), the picture would keep freezing and make a blue screen on my camera. I would like to transfer those movies to computer storage and was starting to do so when the pavilion died. Thanks In Advance...I really need some help because now I can't even use my webcam that I need to use everyday -Mark mixx941, Sep 2, 2002 #4 Dan O Joined: I switched it to the legacy drivers, and nothing.

The integrated harddisks are not usable any more. is the issue -- scsi outperforms ide hands down -- correct?? - by blowhole firewire external hard drives (5:45pm est wed nov 29 2000)anyone tried the new external firewire drives, such we trashed the new software and loaded it again to the main hard drive and still had no response. his comment is here we opened the g3 box and checked that the firewire connections were tight and enabled the usb extension and re-connected the usb cd-rw.

on the installation prompt, it listed 3 different types of 1394 interfaces, ilink being in one of these three, but the software couldn't access the camera.

You can not post a blank message. all i have to do is plug my camera in to the firewire card, and sit at my pc to capture video. I will find out from WD if a Firmware Update is available and advisable for their External MyBook Hard Drives.
