Question about Epson Stylus Photo R1800 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Can you advise -- what firewire cable do i use to connect PC with printer? Both PC and device have 1394 ports, but specs don't say pin number. (PC is new, so presumably has latest firewire standard; the epson dot matrix printer is not new, so 1394 port may comply to an older version of the 1394 standard). do i use 6 pin to 6 pin cable?

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!

Connect JVC GR-D240ek to vista laptop


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

A firewire to USB will not work. It has to be firewire to firewire. A JVC GR-D240ek uses 4-pin, IEEE 1394 compliant Digital Video Connector [DV OUT] to connect a 1394 cable (also known as a FireWire or i.Link cable) to a laptop equipped with an equivalent IEEE 1394 port. Please note that some laptops firewire port could either be 4 pins or 6 pins.

Soon as that connection as shown above is established, you can use Windows Import Video to capture / download the videos.

Other notes (from the same Windows Help link above) :
  • You can also open Windows Import Video by using Windows Movie Maker. After you connect ... your DV camera, and your computer, start Windows Movie Maker, turn on your DV camera, put it into playback mode, and Windows Import Video should open automatically.
  • You can also open Windows Import Video by using Windows Photo Gallery. After you connect ...your DV camera, and your computer, start Windows Photo Gallery, turn on your DV camera, and put it into playback mode. In Windows Photo Gallery, click File, click Import from Camera or Scanner, click your DV camera in the list of devices, click Import, and then follow the instructions.
  • You can also open Windows Import Video by using Windows Live Photo Gallery. (This options requires you to install Windows Live on your computer.) After you connect your...your DV camera, and your computer, start Windows Live Photo Gallery, turn on your DV camera, and put it into playback mode. In Windows Live Photo Gallery, click File, click Import from a camera or scanner, click your DV camera in the list of devices, click Import, and then follow the instructions.
Verify that the laptop's firewire port is 100% up to specs and totally compliant to IEEE 1394.

God luck and thank you for using FixYa.

My device is connected. Ulead VideoStudio says: Either no video capture driver is install. Where can I find the driver for Sony handycam DCR-TRV30E


  • The USB connection only allows transfer of pictures and movies stored on the Memory stick. The videos recorded to DV tape is NOT accessible through the USB interface. You must transfer taped videos using i.Link.
  • Go get a Firewire (also known as i.Link and IEEE 1394) cable to connect to your computer's Firewire port. Adding a Firewire PC card is relatively inexpensive, but make sure that card has BOTH the 4 pin and 6 pin connections, for most flexibility.
  • Once you connect the camcorder with the Firewire cable, the Ulead VideoStudio will see the camcorder as a video capture device, without additional software or drivers.

I want to watch video from my camcorder on pc. My camcorder has a 4 pin ieee firewire port. How many pins does the compaq presario sr1420nx have for its ieee firewire port? Should I use 800mps cables


You are on the right track. The best way to hook your computer to your camcorder is the firewire connection. There are 4 pins on the small connection on your cam, but on the PC the firewire connection is bigger and has six pins on that end. You should get the best cable that you have access to, because speed is everything when you are dealing with video, I would get the 800mps. Just make sure to check your connections on the PC and the Cam to make sure you get the right cable.

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.

How to connect Panasonic GS-36 to PC


Your camera has a 4 pin port on the side of it next to the USB port.....depending on the type of firewire connector on your computer will determine what type of 1394 cable you will need to connect the PC to the camera. Your computer could have a 6 pin or 9 pin connector (I'm betting it has a 6 pin). Get a 1394 cable that is 4 pin to 6 pin and you should be able to connect the two together....that's how I did it with my tower PC and to my laptop with a firewire PCMCIA card.
