Question about Sony Handycam DCR-HC42 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
My cam stopped the communication with others firewire devices (in my philips dvd-burner too). My computer only recognize the USB connection. What is wrong? solutions? Help?
As far as the camera not being recognized when using firewire, you have to use a genuine, original Sony i-link/firewire cable. for the longest time i couldn't figure out what was wrong with the camera. i tried two different cables and two different computers. finally i took it to a sony service center and had them check it out. when i went to pickup the camera they said there was no problem. i didn't believe them and asked to talk to the technician that worked on the camera. I told him to show me it worked and was recognized. He did indeed, but using a sony cable. when i gave him my cable to try, it didn't work. luckily they were nice enough to let me go without paying the $80 minimum charge for any work, including the diagnostic "plugging in sony cable" check. I then bought an overpriced sony firewire cable for $25 and everything works. Damn sony's proprietary **** (all the sony people i related this story to blamed the bad quality of the cables i had been using)
