Inspiron 1501 - connecting my Hitachi VM-D865LE video cameraCan somebody out there please assist me - I purchased a ''Best Connectivity''Firewire 1394A express card (34mm) which apparently is compliant withIEEE1394-1995 & 1394A- 2000 standard (T1 X102200 - 2X 1394A) which the computer refused to recognise - I tried the adding new hardware system but still nothing - the I even tried powering the card with a seperate supply but still dead - really getting miffed now because I want to burn some disks and this has been going on for months -initially I returned the card to the supplier (I security marked itbefore I posted it ) and they replaced it for me having checked it was working before they sent it - (I do believe they did because the sealed package had been opened) - what am I doing wrong ? is there a better express card more compatable with the Inspiron 1501 - or would I be better off dumping this Dell heap and going back to another Toshiba ? -

Did you make sure thw cam is compatible with your operating system
make sure while installing software cam is unplugged until asked to plug it in or on a restart if you have done all this then
i want to go to camera-drivers.com they should have your cam type and download your cam from there
see if that helped

Your Pentax K7 lacks firewire (1394) connectivity, so a connection to a fireware jack will not be possible without purchasing an inexpensive Firewire to USB adapter . From the manual:
USB 2.0 hi-speed, AV out, HDMI out, DC in, cable switch, 3.5mm stereo microphone.
Video out: HD (1080i30, 720p30, 480p30), NTSC, PAL
Printer interfaces: n/a
The I/O (input /output) panel on a Pentax K7 camera.
You can connect a USB cable from the "PC/AV" on the camera to your computer's USB port with an appropriate cable to transfer image files for editing, etc. Additionally, you can send video directly to a TV with an appropriate cable via the camera's HDMI jack.
That is a standard IEEE cable that available anywhere. As far as you being able to produce the videos it depends on your computer and its capabilities. You have to have a firewire input on your pc and also the software that makes the dvd's. I hope this helps.
Found the handbook / manual which gives the exact reference number for the battery required. Thanks for the help. Perhaps your home page could make it clear that you do not offer a 'free' service. The gratis assistance comes from the 'community' which seems to me to be non-existant!!
1.5 hours is actually pretty good record time. Depends on the battery of course,but, most 2 hr batteries will only last 1.5 hours during normal use (regardless of the charge time).
Depending upon the connectivity of your PC, there are a couple of ways to get your video to your computer. Assuming your camcorder only has analogue A/V out (yellow red and white RCA), the first thing you need to buy is an analogue to digital converter. There are 2 ways to hook these up to your PC. The best way is using Firewire connectivity. However, if your PC does not have firewire, you'll have to settle for USB connectivity. Through USB, the video will appear choppy, whereas, with firewire, the video will appear as smooth as the original. Just google the terms "rca to usb" or "rca to firewire" to find lots of product that will allow you to convert analogue to digital.
One other method you may consider is to buy a DVD video recorder. You could then just copy the DVD video to your computer.
Once you have purchased an analouge to digital converter, then you need to capture the video to your PC using your favorite software. winXP includes movie maker which will work.
There is a mode switch within the deck assembly that is probably dirty but not cleanable. I haven't repaired one of those for some years and am sure spares are no longer available for it. The 58 is V8 format and should be OK but may show similar symptoms due to age, in the future.
There is No Internal Bluetooth Option On This Model.
If you want Bluetooth, You,ll have to purchase A seperate Bluetooth Dongle.
There Is A Wifi Built In. ( To enable This you,d Press fn and F2 On The Keyboard )
Hope This helps.
