    from what i have seen, laptops do not have firewire connectors on them, only usb

    if you mean that you have a usb to firewire wire then i havent heard of those too.

    i dont understand what you mean though.

Ok, so the cam accepts firewire but the laptop doesint, you would need an add-on card, unless your laptop has firewire already, http://i12.ebayimg.com/01/i/001/26/3c/2868_1.JPG like that one if it does have one then you will just need to connect it in and install the drivers and software included with the cam i hope it helps

I bought a new firewire to download video from my digital video camera but don't see where to plug the end that goes to the computer? I have an eMachine tower desktop


if there isn't one in back you probably do not have a firewire connection, however there are aftermarket cards that can be inserted into your machine that will allow you to have this port. They are called firewire PCI hubs.

What dose the icons mean on front panel what is the little square hole for next to the mike connection


hello, it is most likely a firewire connection.
FireWire, originally created by Apple and later standardized as IEEE-1394, actually preceded USB and had similar goals. The difference is that IEEE-1394 was originally intended for devices working with lots more data -- things like camcorders, DVD players and digital audio equipment. IEEE-1394 and USB share a number of characteristics and differ in some important ways. Here's a summary:
  • Like USB, IEEE-1394 is a serial bus that uses twisted-pair wiring to move data around.
  • However, while USB is limited to 12 megabits per second, IEEE-1394 currently handles up to 400 megabits per second.
  • USB can handle 127 devices per bus, while IEEE-1394 handles 63.
  • Both USB and IEEE-1394 support the concept of a isochronous device -- a device that needs a certain amount of bandwidth for streaming data. This mode is perfect for streaming audio and video data.
  • Both USB and IEEE-1394 allow you to plug and unplug devices at any time.
hope this helps,

regards

DO I REALLY NEED A FIREWIRE CARD?


If your camera is Firewire, iLink,or IEEE 1394, then you need Firewire support or a Firewire card.

If your camera has a USB symbol, or says USB anywhere in the manual, you can use USB for the functions it allows.

There is no USB to Firewire or Firewire to USB without the use of an advanced device.

I want to watch video from my camcorder on pc. My camcorder has a 4 pin ieee firewire port. How many pins does the compaq presario sr1420nx have for its ieee firewire port? Should I use 800mps cables


You are on the right track. The best way to hook your computer to your camcorder is the firewire connection. There are 4 pins on the small connection on your cam, but on the PC the firewire connection is bigger and has six pins on that end. You should get the best cable that you have access to, because speed is everything when you are dealing with video, I would get the 800mps. Just make sure to check your connections on the PC and the Cam to make sure you get the right cable.

How to connect IEEE 1394 (4 pin) to computer


IEEE 1394 is commonly referred to as Firewire. Your Dell doesn't support it. You will have to purchase a firewire adapter card and install it and its drivers into your computer.
