Posted by Anonymous on
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).
