Hi, I have a problem with my new Sony HVR A1P cam. I bought the camera in Singapore a few months back - I live in Brunei (small country on Borneo - with very limited tech support!) and have never been able to connect it to any computer, either using firewire or USB.
When I jack it into my laptop (Asus F3J) using firewire (i-link) the computer does not recognise that it is even there.
Is it a hardware problem? Do I need to download drivers onto my laptop? Install any software?
I have changed settings on cam to try and suit HDV settings. But all very confusing for an amateur like myself!
I am using Premiere CS3 to edit.
When I bought the camera I did not receive a CD.
cheers, grateful for any feedback.
