Hi, I have a Intel Core Duo running WinXP SP2 and what -I guess- is a capture card that I have just installed in it. The card is one of those things that you install in the back of the computer, containing a firewire in and out port and nothing else. Inside the computer, I've connected what I thought was the in port (the larger one) to one of the USB data connectors on the motherboard.
Now, I've got a Sony DCR-TRV110E that I've connected to the other end of the firewire cable. When I switch the camera on in review mode Windows starts beeping that it has discovered new software, but then fails to discover it. It does so constantly about once every 3 seconds. If I try to start the computer with the camera already started and plugged in, the comp won't start.
What's the solution? I've also got an S-video port on both the graphics card and the camera, would that work instead?
Many thanks for the help!
