1394 hard to find device drivers and IRQ assignment

Hi, I'll try to make this short. Tried Ulead to capture video, program get stuck only on capture - works otherwise. Ulead tech support blames it on my pc. On the same note, Windows Movie Maker does the same thing when trying to capture. The only one that works (captures) is the Vegas 9.0 (trial version).

Downloaded all possible updates from WIndows live update. Still no positive result. Checked Device Manager, no conflicts but I noticed that the 1394 shares IRQ 20 with the 10/100 networking.

Here is some of the info, if more is needed I can provide it:

Vendor 11C1h Lucent/Agere Systems (Was: ATT MicroElectronics)
Device 5811h FW322/323 IEEE1394 OHCI FireWire Controller
Subsystem Vendor 103Ch Hewlett-Packard Company
Subsystem Device 2A36h
Command 0006h Memory Access, BusMaster
Status 0290h Has Capabilities List, Supports Back-To-Back Trans., Medium Timing

sorry, I posted without finishing by mistake...

Since the 1394 device driver is from 2001, I thought I'd go find a newer one. Absolutely no luck, Lucent is no more, don't know where to turn. Anyone knows where I can find a more current driver, and also is the shared IRQ causing this problem??

Hp pavilion d4650y cto system.

Thanks much!

Just sharing.

My HP r3000 laptop has built in firewire and is using the Microsoft issued driver. Works just fine. What makes you think you need a newer driver? Again, there is none so I'll stop here.

As to the shared IRQ, mine is shared with zero issues.

Thanks Bob,

As I was saying in the first post, I'm having problems capturing video in both Ulead and Windows Movie Maker (which should work fine since it's Microsoft, right?) Ulead tech support says it's something wrong with my pc, but I can't figure out what since I have all the updates and service packs that Windows recommended. I was thinking it's the 1394 device driver but I just don't know now. It must be something else then, I'll keep looking.

Again, thanks for the response, it definitely helps me knowing that IRQ sharing is all right and there is no driver available.

Did you try WINDV?

"The only one that works (captures) is the Vegas 9.0 (trial version)."

Since Vegas works, try WINDV. And while they may be right you can find plenty of people that have issues here. For me it's Vegas and WINDV (found with google.)
