No IEEE1394(firewire) port on older laptob..no place for my Dynex Cardbus?
I have a little Insignia digital camcorder that I need to connect to my 2006 compaq presario v5000 (the cheaper model with no IEEE1394 port)..i have a very expensive video capture program used for only motion analysis in sports..there is no place to put my card into in order for me to have the actual firewire port..any thoughts? or is there a place to put it i just dont know about? thanks a ton

The connection would be, analog into device, firewire to computer. Play
the analog device and import into iMovie, Final Cut or other editor.
They should see the signal and therefore import to a digital file. Check
with System Profiler to see if it sees the firewire device. If your
software allows playing to the firewire device, the ADVC300, then you
can record to those analog devices.
The unit goes in a spare 5 11/2" drive bay, same type as your DVD player/writer; it is held in place with screws provided.
The audio cable connects to the 'front panel audio pinout' on your motherboard or if it is a plug there should be a backside slot cover provided that has a hole in it. You pass the plug through this hole and plug it into your audio ports, the green hole.
The1394 cable is called Firewire and connects to the firewire pinout on your motherboard.
The USB cable connects to an unused USB pinout on your motherboard.
Do you need a map of your motherboard that shows where these are? They are labeled clearly. If you have never had your hands in a PC to connect things to your motherboard LET ME KNOW and I'll advise you on how to do this safely so you don't damage anything or yourself.
If you have any other questions I didn't cover JUST ASK ME by commenting below and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.
is your IEEE port(firewire port) a PCI interface card? if yes then youll have to dig inside your hardware(make sure that your system is turned off) try to reseat the card into the PCI slot then turn on your PC again and connect your handycam. then check if your computer already detected your handycam
I have no magic solutions for this problem, and I?m guessing you?ve already tried what I?m going to suggest, but if not maybe you should try that:
1. are you using a laptop? The card you?re using might be a Cardbus, which usually isn?t supported by laptops because of BIOS settings.
2. It might also be a driver problem. Disconnect the card, remove it, remove the drivers. Restart the computer and reinstall the drivers. Turn the computer off. Reconnect the card and only then turn the computer on again. Wait a few minutes (sometimes it takes a few minutes for the computer to recognize new software). I don?t know if it would work, but it?s worth giving a shot.
