Newbie to video editing here i'm having a problem getting my camcorder to be recognised by my laptop, model HP Compaq 6735s which has Windows Vista Home Premium, I have bought a IEEEE 1394 firewire express card/34 with firewire cable and attached 6 pin to the card and 4 pin to my JVC GR-D24EK DV camcorder. The firewire card shows up ok in my Device Manager as Via OHCI compliant IEEE 1394 Host Controller, but my laptop is not recognising my camcorder, i have tried different capture software programmes but none recognise my camcorder. I have no software disc for my camcorder as bought 2nd hand.
Does anyone have a solution for me please !!!
Thanks for looking.
