Firewire on Inspiron - Connecting Canon MD 120 camcorder

My Dell Inspiron 1525 with Vista does not recognize the canon md 120 camcorder. The camcorder came with a 4 pin to 6 pin firewire cable. Since the Dell only has a 4 pin port - I bought a 4 pin to 4 pin firewire cable.

However my camcorder is still not recognized. Do you think I need to use the original cable (4 -6 pin) cable and a converter (6 pin to 4 pin)??

I've tried everything else! The camcorder came without any software CD/drivers. The canon website doesn't offer any drivers.

I'm at a loss. Any help appreciated!

    I have the same camcorder that I'm trying to connect to a Dell INSPIRON 530s and I need advice on what which type of cable to use. I've gone through the computer manual and unless I'm missing something, I don't see DV (IEEE1394) terminal or a DV capture board.

Browsing over the md120 specs, included should be a software disc for the usb connector, so it shouldn't matter whether you use an adapter or the 4 to 4 cable. This disc will have the drivers and software for using the camera in conjunction with your laptop. Have you tried this download for the camera.
http://software.canon-europe.com/products/0010449.asp

Also check out this link. Towards the bottom under additional features it lists software, drivers and utilities, and at the bottom under supplied accessories it lists application software/usb driver. Go to the store you purchased this at or contact Cannon support and get the disc that was supposed to be included.

USB devise not recognized pop up on Inspiron 1525 laptop. I formated the hard drive and reinstalled vista and still pops up. Any help is appreciated.


What device is it? normally it refers to a USB device or sometimes the webcam. go to the device website and download the drivers.
if it is the inbuilt webcam or another internal device the dell website will have all the drivers for your laptop.

How to turn on webcam in my dell inspiron 1525. but i have default cam driver installed in os. tell me the solution.


Is the webcam being recognized in Control Panel/Device Manager - under 'Imaging Devices'?
Have you tried reinstalling the webcam drivers/software you might have received with the laptop?
You can download the latest versions from the Inspiron 1525 from this link Drivers and Downloads

The Dell 'Webcam Manager' software is listed under 'Applications', and the drivers are listed under 'Input Device Drivers' (integrated webcam).
Select the appropriate OS version (i.e. Vista 32bit), download and install those two (drivers first)

Note: When you click the respective download links, don't use the Dell Download Manager!! It's known to cause various problems. Use the 'download in internet browser' option instead.

I presume that Vista has just been installed and connecting wireless. Check if the Wireless switch is on (edge on the right side. IF no change, install the software driver that is on Drivers/Utilities CD that came with your computer. Please comment if the information has been helpful. Thank you and regards.
