Samsung camcorder vp-d381 eject L fault

Hello, my Samsung vp-d381 has developed a fault, the screen shows the eject symbol followed by the letter L. The camcorder is now stuck in the eject state and won't accept a tape. I've followed the solution in the manual but the the fault still persists. Does any one know what the fault message means and how I can clear it.

SOURCE: My Camcorder Breaks the tapes

Your camcorder needs to be cleaned and or serviced ASAP. Please do not use any more tapes, as you may have a stuck roller head or sticky contact surfaces that can "catch" the tapes intermittently.

You should be able to have it serviced very cheaply at a camera store, but I would not use it any further for danger of potentially ruining the camera.

SOURCE: Cant find port on my Dell Computer for firewire data transfer

Hello margaret
I hate to be the one to tell you this but most Dell's do not have a firewire port unless you requested it to have one when you purchased it.

Below is a picture of what the opening of a firewire port looks like:
If you cannot find one of these, I'm sorry to say you don't have the necessary port.

You can buy a daughter board to put in your Dell that will give you firewire ports

Here is a link from eBay with some:
http://shop.ebay.com/?_from=R40&_trksid=p3907.m38.l1313&_nkw=firewire+PCI+cards&_sacat=See-All-Categories

And one from best buy:

If you do decide to buy one of these, please comment on this post or re-post as "Help with installing a firewire PCI card in my Dell" and I, or someone else capable, will gladly help you.




Hope this helps
-Chris

OK there are NO cables as such for that PC, as of normal, to get Video into this machine you will have to use either, a USB TV/Video card, and use the AV inputs. OR put a Video TV/Video Capture card into a PCI slot, and again use the AV inputs to connect via. The you will have to use the AV leads Yellow, Red & White, OR the SVHS port if available. You will also need software to record the video stream, If you camera has FireWire then you could install a FireWire Card into a PCI slot and hook you via that, you will still have to use software though. Sometimes the camera, has proprietary software to edit and work with the Video from the camera, usually via FireWire. To get said software go to the manufacturers web site, and download a copy.
