    Subject: Computer does not recognize connection to camera

    Hello,
    I have always had success in connecting my fire wire cable to my camera and computer, exporting and importing video via Adobe Premiere 6.0.
    Unfortuntately, last week this suddenly doesn't work anymore.
    I get the error : The Dv device is unable for dv control.

    I have tried various things. I rebooted my computer many times, and still to no avail I keep gettng the same error.
    I bought a new fire wire cable and i still get the error.

    I crawled behind my computer and noticed that my fire wire card (texas instruments), port was slightly expanded than the others.
    I shall buy a new fire wire card and really hope that that is the problem. What fire wire cards do you recommend.
    Unless anybody else things there might be other problems.

    However I was wondering what people's experience was with fire wire 1394 cards. How could the port expand like that?

    I bought my computer from dell, and have had this card for 4 years. I only started using it more this year.

    My other question, is that, if i do buy a new card. Would it effect the video that I already have on the computer. If I export the video already in the computer to the camera, will it be choppy or anything. Or is that directly related to the software.

    Please advise. :cry:

    My details of my computer are as follows
    800 MHZ Pentium
    512 memory
    250 gigs
    windows XP

    Try reinstalling the device drivers first, that might save you some money. If that doesn't work, reinstall Windows and re-configure everything from scratch. And if that doesn't work either, go get another $ 15 Firewire card.

    Changing the Firewire card will have no effect whatsoever on your existing material.
