Hi guys

I have an ACER laptop with firewire port. Everywhere I read firewire is plug and play, but I connect my JVC DVX7 to the laptop with the firewire cable, switch on the JVC in PLAY mode (laptop was already on) and nothing happens.

Windows says all firewire controllers work OK.

It is the first time I try firewire port of both camera and PC.

It is likely a HW fault? Any suggestions to find the source of the problem?
