Hi there, I was wondering if you could help me on which firewire I would need for my JVC GR-DVL100U? I haven't used it in years, but would like to transfer some old footage.
Does the firewire connect to a USB port on the computer?
I wonder if anyone else has experienced this issue? I have had my mini-dv for a long time now (5+yrs). I have used it many times before on my pc via Firewire cable. I've simply opened up Windows Movie Maker and started capturing and editing - worked perfectly. HOWEVER, today i wanted to capture my recent holiday footage. I connected my firewire to pc and the windows "Found New Hardware" wizard appeared. It wants me to install a driver? I didn't think drivers were required for a firewire connection? Anyway, when loading Windows Movie Maker - it does not pick up the device. I have tried Nero and Producer - but same - neither pick up the mini-dv.
Maybe i'm missing something obvious (as it's been a while - almost 2 years since i've last captured video on my pc). I have a windows XP pc sp3. The Device Manager has a yellow exclamation on "Other Devices" - i suppose referencing to the mini-dv...
Any help would be appreciated.
