For the past few days I have been trying to fix why my video editing programs / pc is unable to detect any camera that is connected via firewire (a 1394 port) cable. Today I went as far as formatting my drive and reinstalling all the drivers and software. Same problem!!
Could it be that my firewire cable is damaged? or the port socket itself? - I can't understand why though because its rarely ever touched...what other cause could it be?
