Thread: DV cam firewire ports faulty

  1. #1

    Default DV cam firewire ports faulty

    My pc is unable to detect any of three cameras by firewire. Tried them on other pcs too. So it looks like the firewire ports are damaged.

    How much does a Mini dv player for firewire cost? and where from?

    I've no idea what a 'mini DV player for firewire' is but...

    all you need do is replace the firewire ports on your computer. If it's a PC (as opposed to a Mac) I know you can buy a PCI firewire card for just over 3 UKP if you shop around (DABS.com is where I saw one for that price if I recall correctly). Takes five minutes to fit.

    I took them down to a pc repair shop today and connected them to other computers. Looks like the fault is with the cameras.

    I am wondering if there is a cassette player I can get to connect to pc, rather than wear out heads on a camera.

    I've seen them but they tend to get classified as 'pro' kit and you pay for it too. Cheaper I think to buy a cheap camcorder and use that.
