Hi, i want to no, what is 1394 on motherboard and if the usb cable in the front write 1394, i install it like a regular usb cable?????


It is Firewire port/ Interface. The IEEE 1394 interface is a serial bus interface standard for high-speed communications and real-time data transfer, frequently used by personal computers, as well as in digital audio, digital video applications etc. The interface is also known by the brand names of FireWire (Apple), i.LINK (Sony), and Lynx (Texas Instruments). This is not as widely used.It works just like USB but it is meant for connecting Firewire capable devices. If you have any firewire capable device (like video camera)and firewire cable, you can connect the device to your PC and use it for high speed data transfer.

Hope it helps! Good Luck!

Firewire worked once but not anymore...Canon XHA1


Solution? Maybe, but PC's vary greatly. Pass it on if it works for you. If Win-XP. Device manager. Un-install IEE1394. Close & Restart. Let the system restore the 1394 then try to reconnect the unit, cable to the PC first, then to the powered down camera. Power up the cam. What are you using to ingest? I recommed http://scenalyzer.com.

Detection of my digital camera


if your pc has firewire IEEE 1394 ports then it does not need them added, if it does not then it needs them added,
firewire, IEEE 19394 cables have a pc end that is flat D shaped and a device end that is rectangular with one side bent in.
if you have a socket on the backplane of the pc that looks like the ones in the background
f2339e9.jpg then you have firewire, else you can buy a pci firewire card for any vacant slot for ~$20.00

I can't get pictures off of my camera and onto my computer. When I plug in the firewire, the camera is not visible on the desktop.


What operating system are you using?? Windows or MAC?
For Windows, make sure the 1394 Connection is Enabled.

Go to Control Panel > Network Connections > 1394 Connection right-click then Enable.

OR

Right-click My Computer > Properties > Hardware > Device Manager > Network Adapters > 1394 Connection right-click to Enable

I have found you a Manual if that is of any help? www.adaptec.com/en-US/support/firewire/FireConnect/AFW-8300/_docs/afw8300_ug_pdf.htm All I can think of is a faulty cable? Also sometime just changing the PCI slot will help?

JVC GR-D275 not seen as connected to computer


Many Camcorder users have faced problems while connecting their camcorder to their PC. One of the most common problems is ?no activity? after connecting the camcorder to the PC. The found new hardware wizard does not run and fails to detect the camcorder. This can mean two things. Either the DV port on the Camcorder is not working or the FireWire cable is faulty. Try using a different FireWire cable. If the camera is still not detected by the PC, try connecting it to a different PC. If the Camcorder is still not detected, then your camcorders DV port is most likely at fault. Confirming that the FireWire Port on you PC is working fine You can check the status of the FireWire port from under Device Manager. To access the Device Manager, Right Click on My Computer and then click on Properties. Select the Hardware tab and click on Device Manager. If you cannot see the FireWire port in the list, then it is not inserted properly into the motherboard. If you see a Yellow exclamation mark, then you need to install the drivers, which are usually bundled with a Floppy or CD with the FireWire card.

My Camcorder Is Not Detected By The IEEE Card.


1. CHECK CAMCORDER CONNECTIONS AND SETTINGS. 1. The DV Camcorder is turned on and connected by the power adapter (not battery) 2. The Camcorder is in Play Mode. 3. The IEEE 1394 cable is properly connected from you camcorder to the IEEE 1394 card. If you have checked these steps and the camcorder is still not detected, then the camcorder driver is most likely not loaded. 2. CHECK DEVICE MANAGER TO VERIFY THAT CAMCORDER DRIVER IS LOADED. 1. Go to Device Manager by clicking on Programs > Settings > Control Panel > System. (In Windows 2000 you have the additional steps of clicking on Hardware > Device Manager). 2. Under the device heading called Imaging Devices, you should see a device called "Samsung DV Camera or DV Camcorder". If you have an exclamation point "!" on this device, highlight the device by clicking on it and then click the Remove and Refresh buttons for Windows 98SE and ME. For Windows 2000, click on the uninstall icon, then click on the scan for new hardware icon. Even if the camcorder device does not have an exclamation point "!" on it, you can remove it and reload it. With Windows ME and Windows 2000, and Windows XP, the 1394 camcorder driver is built into the operating system by Microsoft and is already loaded on your system. With Windows 98SE the files are located on the 98SE CD in the Win98 folder. If the device is not listed, please check all of items in step #1 above. If it continues to be a problem, there may be a problem with the: 1. Camcorders firewire port 2. 1394 cable 3. The 1394 host controller card Samsung does not support Firewire Components. You must consult the manufacturer of your Firewire product(s).
