Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook

1 Answer

Firewire Ports My Hp Pavilion dv6000z laptop has firewire, but it's only the other end of the cable, the upside down one. I would love to connect my laptop to the camera I have, but they both have the same port. Is there a sort of cable that has both connections at the end? Thanks

I'm gonna assume that you need a double ended 4-pin firewire cord.
If so, here is a link for one.

You could try buying a USB to firewire converter cable, which would allow you to connect a Firewire device to one of your USB ports.

Search USB Firewire cable on the Internet. eBay probably have a bunch of them offered for sale.

Most PCs have USB ports, but no Firewire port. Macs often have a Firewire port but may not have USB. You could fit an add-on Firewire interface card to a desktop PC, but not to a laptop.

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.

Firewire 800 cable


No such thing s a dumb question, I transfer from my Canon XL1 to my Mac IBook with firewire all the time. You have three choices: 1. Buy a cable with two different ends - one that will fit your camera (the tiny one so small it is hard to insert) and one that will fit the Mac. Your Mac should have two different types of firewire ports - the semi-round one and the square one that looks like a USB port, but isn't. The symbols are different  for firewire ports firewire and USB ports. But all firewire ports, regardless of the configuration will have the firewire symbol and all USB ports will have the USB symbol.  Either firewire symbol port will work. I have two different firewire ports on my MacBook G4 and use them both,  I keep a bunch of firewire connectors around. They usually come with outboard hard-drives in various configurations. Sold en Ebay or at computer stores Solution 2: Feed your firewire through an outboard drive that will accept the 400 firewire (many do) and then take another firewire, say an 800, from that drive into your computer. I always capture to a hard drive then edit from there. The idea of a firewire bus is that you can connect a number of drives in parallel and mount them all. Available for as little as $69.
Solution 3: Buy a firewire port card for you MacBook which slips into a slot on the side, and gives you connectivity with the 400. It also frees up your main firewire port. I bought one on Ebay for $24 that came with all the adaptors. I was pulling my hair out too until I figured out the system.

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

Firewire


firewire is a lot like usb in the power area if the drive is not getting power i would suspect the firewire port. firewire did not become very popular because of problems like these. You need to go down to a computer parts store and by a firewire card and that should provide enough power and bypass the on-board ports. Try to hook another device up to the firewire ports and see if they work if not install the daughterboard with firewire ports

Firewire cards


Why do you need to use another firewire card? The firewire port located on the right of the machine between the card reader and USB ports should work fine with most devices. I use mine frequently with a Sony Firewire camcorder and have never had a problem.

I had this same problem, I contacted MOTU's customer support and it is caused by the firewire chip being blown. They said this is most likely caused by someone accidently plugging the firewire cable in upside down. Have a look to see if you firewire ports on you traveler look split. Its a hardware thing and you'll have to contact MOTU to get a repair done. They will probably just send you a new unit.
