The motherboard does not support SATA. If you want to use SATA, you'll have to use an adapter. Not sure if this is possible in your laptop. Also I don't think this increases performance very much.
So it's not gonna be a faster drive, but larger can...

Can't connect to Windows laptop


You have to use a Firewire cable for your computer or else the cable you are using is of cheap quality and definitely some of the cheap quality cables do not work. What I also know about Laptops or most laptops do not have a Firewire connection so you can not use it on yours if it hasn't got that firewire socket. So you might try using the usb cable which is not as reliable as the Firewire cable. However another solution for this if your laptop; hasn't got that socket is to get to a Desktop Computer and buy a firewire card then put it into your pci socket. Once the picture have been downloaded then you can transfer them to your laptop using a flash disk or an other storage facility.

I have got my uncle`s Mini Dv JVC GR-DVL300 EA without driver to connect to my laptop running with Vista please also advise me where/how can get a cable to connect that camera to my laptop thank you


The cable is a firwire 4-6 or 4-4 pin cable. Check your computer for the type of firewire socket it has. Most newer laptops have 4 pin.
These are available at most places that sell computer gear.

This type of camera usually downloads better with a Firewire (DV) connection. Some mini-DV cameras only use the USB connection for stills (if they have one) and can only download video by Firewire. This is because you have to play the tape into the computer, not just copy a file.

Most PCs have a USB port, but no Firewire port. Macs often have a Firewire port but may not have USB. With desktop Windows PCs, you can fit an add-on Firewire interface card. This comes with a driver for the card. If your laptop doesn't have a Firewire socket, then you are probably stuck.

Hello, My laptop does not have a firewire port. What do I have to do to transfer video to my laptop from my GL2?


What brand and model is your laptop?
Since we don't know the laptop model I have to cover a little more info here.

Most laptops have at least 1 expansion ports available on the side and you can use that to add additional ports or features if needed such as Firewire, USB2.0, or Ethernet, etc

Older laptops came with 1 or 2 full size PCMCIA ports. Those are rarely used anymore.

Newer laptops usually have an ExpressCard port.
These newer cards come with either 54 or 34 pins so you'd need to get the right one for your laptop.

For example, view the main ExpressCard info here
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ExpressCard


Be aware that Firewire is officially known as the "IEEE1394" protocol. So some sites may refer to it with that name and it's the same thing. Apple calls it Firewire and Sony calls it iLink.

There are several different pin configurations for firewire.
Original 400Mbps speed Firewire from 1995 has a mini 4 pin or a full size 6 pin cable.

Newer Firewire 800 has 800Mbps speed and is called 1394b.
That has it's own cable connector as well and is not very common. It's much faster than USB (even Firewire 400 is ) but it didn't get used a lot.

The firewire connector s are visible here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IEEE_1394_interface


The Canon GL2 uses the original 400Mbps 1394 protocol but the connector might be proprietary since it appears to have 5 pins.
It's visible here from the user manual.
23c8825.jpg

There are 6-pin sockets and smaller (non-powered) 4 pin sockets and they are both still "firewire" but the small one has less options since it has no power connections with it. So the small connections can send data but can't run a portable hard drive or anything that needs power.

The small connectors are used for laptop ports and camcorders while full size desktops usually have the full size 6 pin ports. So to connect the 2 they make adapter cables with one of each type on each end.

Such as this one:
http://www.amazon.com/Phoenix-IEEE-1394-4-Pin-FireWire-Meters/dp/B000165AS0

That fits most applications but I think the Canon cable is proprietary, so hopefully you have the original cable.

So,
You probably need a laptop 1393 DV expansion card, DV editing software and the right cable. The socket on the GL2 doesn't look like a typical IEEE connector in the user manual so that may be Canon specific. If you still have the original cable that came with it then you're all set.

You can find a laptop expansion card online such as doing a search on Amazon.com with the words expresscard + 1394 and you will see many ExpressCard adapters to pick from.
Get the laptop 1394 expansion card that matches your Canon Cable and that can plug into your laptop on the other end (choose the right 54 or 34 pin type) that matches your laptop.

When i connect my camcorder through the firewire


Hello my friend, yes had same problem, I had hair when it happened to me, now bald hi hi, but you need to go into the PC Control panal, go to System settings, look down a long list eg Sound, Drives, Mouse, etc look at Cameras, if your camera is in the list highlight it, and delete driver with clicking you mouse on it, come out of control panal on PC, REMOVE ALL camera cables from PC, turn off your PC in normal way.
Now when your PC is OFF plug your fire-wire cable in camera, then to the PC, turn camera on, and THEN turn your PC on (MUST BE LAST THING YOU DO) then once your PC is fully rebooted and you are in windows your camera is seen all done.
Take care, all the best.

You don't need any special drivers for firewire connection, If your PC quipped with IEEE1394 controller it should recognize the camcorder.

Your Canon camcorder has a DV port on it. It needs a firewire cable and a firwire card or adaptor for your computer. Any electronic store has one.
