    Firewire (IEEE 1394) not working

    I canīt connect my video camera Sony DV with the firewire connection.
    I tried the two connections (frontal and back).I am using the 9 pin
    connector
    Before installing Vista It worked perfectly.
    I can connect to my laptop (with a 6 pin cable) and to another older
    computer with windows XP with the same 9 pin cable without problems.
    As anybody a solution ?

    Does the IEEE 1394 port show up in Device Manager under it's Bus host
    controller entry? If this port is on the motherboard, did you remember to
    install the motherboard utility drivers from the motherboard manufacturer's
    website?

    Yes. under the Bus host controler appears "Texas Instrument OHCI compliant
    IEEE 1394 host controller". The same as in another computer where I have no
    problems.
    When I connect the Sony DV camcorder on my laptop (Windows XP) I hear a
    sound and in Windows explorer appears as a drive the camera. At the same
    time in the Device Manager under Imaging Devicer also appears the DV
    camcorder.
    Nothing of this happens with my desktop con Vista. The drivers for the IEEE
    port are from Microsoft version 6.0....

    Re: Firewire (IEEE 1394) not working

    I have Sony DCR-TRV18E Digital Video Camera. When I try to import the video using a 4-pin IEEE1394 cable on Windows Vista using Microsoft Movie Maker, I get the message that my camera is not connected to the laptop.

    Is there any driver that needs to be installed or could there be a problem in the cable itself?

    A 4pin to 4pin 1394 cable isn't powered like a 6pin one. If you're using a
    notebook and only have access to 4pin (either end) then ensure you have the
    camcorder using A/C power, which should be enough to keep the connection
    going. If you are on a desktop, use the 6pin (PC end) to 4pin (camcorder
    end) and you should get a good connection.

    The first time this 'unsovable question has had an intelligent answer!

    I can add a reasonable one too. If you are somewhere without power....like
    in the bush....use a 4 pin firewire to USB cable

    RE: Firewire (IEEE 1394) not working

    I am having a similar issue as well. My Canon ZR800 was recognized and
    working perfectly last week with the DV (4 -pin) out of the camera into the
    4-pin IEEE 1394 port on my Dell Vostro. However, now when I hook it up again
    the computer recognizes it (pings), it shows up in the registry, but there is
    a yellow triangle with an exclamation point and the machine is asking for a
    driver. Canon says the driver is pre-installed in Vista, Dell says it is a
    Vista issue, Microsoft said to come here. I have tried downloading the
    recommended hotfix without any luck. Cameras are plugged in and cords are
    new. Again, it worked last week, now it doesn't...

    Same here. Working last week and now not. I have a feeling it has to
    do with a security patch that vista installed in an update. I also
    suddenly don't see my power and sound displays on the lower right
    corner. Thanks Vista you've done it again. Adobe please port to
    Linux so I can dumb Windows forever, what a dream.

    Re: Firewire (IEEE 1394) not working

    Having scoured the internet for info I finally came across a tip incorporated below to fix my Sony camcorder to Vista 1394 firewire problem

    Shuttle XPC SB75G2
    P4 3.07
    1Gb Mem
    ATI 256Mb 1950XT
    dual 360Gb SATA drives
    Vista Ultimate

    Sony DCR-PC330e camcorder

    Before:
    Vista says 1394 driver Ok
    plug in camera- no response from Vista when camera is connected


    procedure; (that worked for me)

    In device manager
    Uninstall 1394 device
    turn camera on
    plug in to 1394 port

    in device manager;
    Action/scan for hardware changes
    system sees 1394 port, installs driver automatically

    system then detected Sony DV-VCR automatically
    manualy install driver by right clicking it in Device manager and selecting 'update driver software'
    do not let it do it automatically, select 'browse my computer for driver software'
    point it at c:\windows

    it detects it as a 61883 class bus device and installs driver
    camcorder appears in device manager as imaging device
    after completion it brought up the autoplay window to ask how I wanted to import the video

    hope this helps

    Re: Firewire (IEEE 1394) not working


    NOPE doesn't work on my system... it's a Vista problem... I'm running
    Ultimate and a panasonic cam that works fine on my XP machine won't even
    be recognised on my Vista pc .... a friend who has a sony cam and a
    different pc has the same issue so it's NOT a hardware issue it's the
    OS... i notice that some manufacturers (ie Epson) are now telling
    customers that Vista WILL NOT WORK with firewire ... i checked some of
    the support areas on here and it looks like MS is intentionally reducing
    the support for firewire ... I think they should highlight this when you
    purchase Vista as it is sold as being designed for multimedia and
    firewire is very popular ... i should have got a XP machine boo hoo
    ... next time I purchase a pc i don't think it will be one using an MS
    OS !
