Toshiba Satellite- A135-S4477 unable to connect firewire

I have Toshiba Satellite- A135-S4477 model laptop which has a 4 pin firwire point and my camcorder has the same port , so i bought a IEEE 1394 4 pin Male to 4 pin Male cable which did not fit my laptop. I think it needs a female , but first thing i couldn't find a 4pin male to 4 pin female cable , and when looking at adapters/converters of male to female i see the female side is quite big but this laptop needs something that can be inserted kind please help what kind of firewire has to be used , need a solution other than using a network card.

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:

I dnt hav usb cable for my handy cam DCR-HC52E ...


Product Summary
    4-pin to 4-pin IEEE 1394 iLink FireWire Cable dv out to laptop Connect and transfer home movie from your digital camcorder to Notebook computer.

    You will need a Firewire port on your computer, also known as a DV port or IEEE 1394, to use this cable. This is NOT a USB cable.

    This DV cable will connect your laptop (notebook)
    NOTE: for some models, becuase of no DV jack on the body, this cable connects to docking station/cradle instead of connecting directly to your camcorder.

There is a Sony tutorial page for downloading video to computer at THIS LINK

You will need to select Windows as the operating system, then your camera type, then select the type of connection.You are strongly recommended to use i.Link (which everyone else calls Firewire).

There is Sony software called Picture Motion Browser that you can download (you will need the number from your original CD).

If none of that helps, perhaps the driver for the Firewire (IEEE 1394) port on the computer needs to be reinstalled. You can view this driver (if it is installed) by opening the control panel\system\hardware\device manager and looking for IEEE 1394. It should say if there is a problem or if it is working. You can force it to reinstall at this point.

How can I get Windows 7 Movie Maker to recognise input from my Sony DCR TRV18E Handycam?


On page 230 of the user manual, it describes how to transfer movies from the camera to a computer using an i.Link (IEEE 1394) cable. You will need the 4 pin i.Link cable and an IEEE 1394 connector on your computer in order to do this. You cannot use the USB cable to transfer the video from this camcorder -- you can only transfer still images using the USB cable.
You will have to buy this i.Link cable and (if you don't have a IEEE 1394 port on your computer) a IEEE 1394 adapter card for you desktop computer. If your laptop computer doesn't have a IEEE 1394 adapter, then you're pretty much out of luck.
Once you have the i.Link and 1394 issues resolved, then Movie Maker should then recognize the camera.

Does this have a firewire port, if so what does it look like?


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.

A sony dcr-trv 103 camcorder and I want to connect to computer


Yes, the brandnames Firewire (Apple) and iLink (Sony) are both IEEE 1394 interfaces.
Your cam should require a 4-pin to a 6-pin, both IEEE 1394. Hope this helps.

Firewire problem


It should work. Laptops have a 4pin connection. There is a video on how to specifically connect digital cameras to laptops using 4pin to 4 pin IEEE 1394 cable. So it should work... The video is on www.HandBookLive.com under Electronics category. It doesn't cover the software because all softwares would be different, but you can see that it uses 4 pin to 4 pin. You can double check on this site though.
