I have the above cam-corder which is supposedly digital but I can not get my PC to recognise it. My PC is about 1 year old with XP operating system and I have purchased and fitted a 1394a Firewire card which, according to my device manager is working properly. I was in some doubt about this because when I started the PC after fitting the card there was no visible prompt that new hardware had been fitted, but I suppose I should trust the device manager. Any way when I plug the camcorder into the firewire port nothing at all happens. I'm perfectly willing to accept that I have done something daft because I certainly am no expert when it comes to this sort of thing so don't have any concerns about hurting my pride when offering advice. Hope someone can help.
