I'm having amazing trouble connecting a camcorder via firewire. sad.gif
I have a PC... Windows XP installed, no service packs, software firewall (Kerio), no antivirus.
I connected the camcorder 2 days ago... and it was working!
BUT... yesterday and today, I've been pulling my hair out... it JUST WON'T see the damn thing.
I tried on another PC. This has all latest service packs, BIOS uptodate, software firewall (Kerio), AVG Antivirus.
Same problem: it won't even see the damn thing.
I thought there might be a problem with the cable or the firewire card.
I tried an external DVD writer... connects fine, always recognised as soon as it's connected.
I have tried the camcorder on 2 other PC's, with 3 different cables.
SAME problem. sad.gif
(On one of the PC's, I tried turning the firewall and antivirus off, no effect.)
OK... then I tried another camcorder.
Same problem: it won't even see the damn thing!! sad.gif
(This camcorder also has USB connections. This work fine when the right driver is installed.)
Then I tried ANOTHER camcorder (that connects fine on Macs via firewire).
What am I doing wrong? sad.gif
I really am going mad over this.
Any help would be appreciated.
