I have a Toshiba Satellite A135-S4527 and it has an i.Link (4-pin Firewire) port on it. It is identified in Device Manager as Texas Instruments OHCI Compliant IEEE 1394 Host Controller. There is also a 1394 Net Adapter under Network Adapters. I am trying to connect my sony DCR-TRV 250 camcorder usin 4 pin - 4 pin cable, but it is not detected. However, this camcorder works well with my desktop where I connect it using 4 pin-6pin cable as desktop has 6 pin connector. I have already tried different 4-4 pin cables etc. I think the problem is with firewire port as other firewire devices are also not detected. Any ideas how to make this firewire port work?

I'm afraid that there is chatter on the forums that these Firewire to USB convertors don't work properly with video cameras. That doesn't mean you can't try it, of course.
Most PCs have a USB port, but no Firewire port. Macs often have a Firewire port but may not have USB. If you have a Windows desktop PC, you can fit an add-on Firewire interface card. This will come with a driver for the card. No help on a laptop unfortunately.
The BIOS password is removed by the BIOS configuration, you need the BIOS password to get into the BIOS configuration.But if you do not have the BIOS password then you need to construct this dongle device. TOSHIBA BIOS PASSWORD DONGLE You can build a dongle that plugs into the printer port.Purchase a 25 pin male D sub connector and solder insulated wires to the various pins as listed below. The pins are numbered on the connector http://www.tilman.de/sonstiges/toshiba/dongle1.jpg this is a picture of the finished dongle
Wire the pins as follows :-1-5-10, 2-11, 3-17, 4-12, 6-16, 7-13, 8-14, 9-15 Plug the finished dongle in the printer port and power up the laptop. The password will be reset, go into the BIOS configuration to check the BIOS password, you may have to disable the BIOS password.
Depending on the model, yes it does have a firewire port. The firewire port is also known as a IEEE-1394 connection. There are 2 possible layouts for this port, 6 pin and 4 pin. Below is a link to an image that shows what the 2 different ports look like. The larger 1 is a 6 pin and the small is 4 pin.
There are generally three different types for firewire connectors. In the laptops its usually the mini contact(type 2) so is even on the camcorders. on the desktop PCs and MACs however it could be. either type 1 or the type 2. There is a thired type (B) which is less common.
The link shows all the types, male and female: http://www.l-com.com/content/Article.aspx?Type=N&ID=95
Not charging . . . And probably the power pin ... where the AC cord connects to thecomputer. That particular component is very fragile. The part torepair it runs between $ 5-$15 but the labor to repair it will costanywhere from $ 100-$250. It can be repaired by you if you are verycareful taking the system apart. Just pay attention to every detail ofyour dis-assembly. I also recommend you get one of these to stop the problem from happening a 2nd time.
