Panasonic DS27 Camcorder IE1394 firewire out problem

Until recently my DS27 has been recognised by my pc and I have been able to capture video into 'Studio 8' - now it does not 'see' the camcorder...
the firewire port works with an external hard drive ... and I recently tried a modern canon camcorder which the PC saw and accepted.

I am running windows XP Sp2 - and have tried uninstalling 1394 from the device manager .. ..

the camcorder AV output works fine so i can download to a VCR tape..

Did wonder if I could use AV to input to PC, but believe my PC (1.3) is not fast enough?

Sony PC110E video camera that is not recognised by PC

Buy a 4 to 4 pin or 4to 6 firewire cable (depending of Your PC model). Connect it to PC. In any case, the system must to recognize firewire device and capture the images. If PC don't want to see Your cam via direct firewire connection it means the firewire out is broken and needs to be repaired.

Downloading video from Sony DCR-HC45 Camcorder using a 1394 Firewire. My PC is not recognising the connection. It did work at one stage without any problem but not any longer. What must I do

You have to go on Device Manager and delete the imaging device. Then uninstall old drivers and software used with the camcorder. With 32 bit OS (Win XP and Win 7 32 bit) install Nero 8 Essentails or any other video capture software. Do not plug in external device during install. After installation is complete, reboot your PC. Now you can connect your camcorder with firewire port and then open the nero software. Under video capture, it will detect your sony camcorder.

Panasonic Palmcorder PV-GS85 Problem: Capture video with Windows Moview maker via USB

I believe you have to use a Firewire (IEEE 1394) cable to transfer the video. From what I have read, the USB connection is only if you want to use the camcorder as a "live" camera.

Problem capturing footage from Canon MV700 DV camcorder to Windows XP

I use Pinnacle Studio versions 9 and 10 without any problems. The software sees the camera MV700i and controlls the playback etc. Have also used Ulead Movie Factory without any problems, but its a little harder when it comes to editing the output.
