    Default Sony DCR-HC19 firewire problem- please help

    I have a sony DCR-HC19, and a pc with firewire ports ( I installed this yesturday) but when I plug the camera into the pc, nothing happens. When I do this with a usb it cable picks it up as new hardware found. Any ideas would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    3 things you can check: different camera, different cable, different port (sometimes it pays to try on another computer too).

    Firstly forget about using USB, only use it to transfer still images from your camera or when you want to use it as a webcam. Did you get any software on CD along with your camcorder? I don't know what comes with Sony camcorders but check the CD to see if there is a driver you need to install first or capture software written specifically for Sony camcorders, which you have to use instead of say Movie Maker or Premiere. Are you using a laptop or a PC? Is the firewire card listed in the Device Manager?
