Hi folks, I've recently bought a Sony Handycam HC14E, and after seeing the quality of USB Video Capture I decided to go and buy an iLink cable.. My laptop (Inspiron 8200) has a firewire port on it - I know that basically ilink/firewire is the same.. I've got the 4pin - 4pin cable, as my laptop has the 4 pin socket for it to go in, The connection (firewire) is enabled in Windows (XP SP2) and my camcorder is on, and the cable is connected to it too. However, I can't actually 'see' the device in Windows, the connection doesn't have an IP Address (not sure if it's supposed to, or if WnXP would assign it a Win Private IP ?) Clicking repair the connection or trying to renew the lease tells me that TCP/IP is not enabled for that connection. The TCP/IP protocol is oviously installed for it though. Anyway, my question is: how can I get to see/capture Video via firewire? I've tried Windows Movie Maker, and Virtual Dub, but both say that no capture device is installed, and to make sure it's turned on, blah blah - I've tried the camcorder in both play and capture modes, as well as having it on when I've powered up my laptop. Any help would be appreicated, thanks! Chris.
