Firewire Compatibility

  Halk 13:49 18 Dec 03

I have a sony viao laptop and wish to use it with my JVC mini DV, except, I have an issue with compatibility. Sony have have set up their products so they are only compatible with thier own branded products. Therefore, if I connect the camera to the laptop, is doesn't reconginise it. I was thinking that if I bought a plug in firewire card would this help me get round the compatibilty issue ????

Any thoughts on this subject would be gratefull recived..

It may be windows which has the recognition issue. If you're connecting dv cam via usb it wouldn't transfer properly as usb can't cope with dv data. So you'll need firewire. here's a good place to start; click here I think the pins for laptop are different than pc.

What driver is listed in device manager for IEEE 1394 Bus controller? Also see if there's a choice under 'display a list of known drivers...'
