If you are using a desktop, you require a an addon card called IEEE 1394 firewire card, which you have to install it on your motherboard's PCI slot, then using the firewire cable which you get along with the card should be connected to the card and DV port of the camera, then using the MOVIE MAKER software of windows XP, you can download the video.

Hi dear smart guys! :) I just plugged in my lacie and what happends is, that nothing actually happends :( No pop up on screen, can't find it when i'm looking under "computer" I DO see it...


It's definitely not Win7. The Operating system has nothing to do with it. You'd need to isolate the issue first. It should be just a plug and play device like a usb flash drive.

Try plugging the HDD to another computer. If it works, then it's a problem with the computer. If it doesn't, then you can focus on the HDD itself.

You can also try the following steps:
- Try turning the computer on while the USB HDD is plugged to see if it's going to be detected. Plug it directly to the usb port and not thru a hub or extended usb cord.
- Go to the device manager and remove all of the USB host controller under USB controller, which is usually the last controllers located below. Then follow the step above.

There are other things that you can do to check it but try the steps above first and let me know what happens before we go further.

Hope this helps.

Disassemble the casing, and disconnect the USB-to-disk-drive adapter from the disk-drive.

Connect the disk-drive as a "slave" disk-drive in some computer. If you are "lucky", the computer will detect the drive. If you are "unlucky", search online for "Data Recovery Service" -- these are high-cost services that can disasemble your disk-drive, repair it just long enough to copy your files onto another disk-drive (or DVD-writable media).

Usb stick not usable


Because its beyond 4Gb that's why its already detected as a disk drive.

You can still save your files here. Have you already tried?

If so, what is the exact error you are getting?

The flash drive purchased doesnot work when pjugged into the usb port on my desk top but it work on my lap top? How do I get it to work on my desk top


Hello claponte

FIRST, THE HARDWARE SIDE:
If you just purchased your flash drive, then it is using the USB 2.0 (high speed) standard. Prior to that were USB version 1.1 and, before that, USB 1.0 standards.

USB 2.0 devices will still work when plugged into USB 1.1 ports - just at a reduced speed)

However, computers w/ USB 1.0 ports cannot properly detect USB 2.0 devices. On those computers, you'd need to install a USB 2.0 expansion card in order to add USB 2.0 functionality to the computer.

SECOND, THE SOFTWARE (DRIVERS) SIDE:
On the software side, USB devices are "plug-and-play" on Windows XP & Vista systems. This means they do not require special drivers or installation for them to work properly. The drivers needed for them to operate are already built into the operating system.

However on operating systems prior to Windows XP (Windows ME, Windows 98SE, Windows 98...) drivers are needed for USB devices to be detected properly.

These are two possible reasons why your flash drives don't work on your desktop computer.
(01) The computer is an older one using USB 1.0 technology
(02) The operating system is pre-Windows XP

Another possibility is (if your computer USB ports are at least 1.1 standard and your operating system is at least Windows XP) there is an issue w/ the USB ports on your desktop computer. This could be a hardware or a software issue still.

Please, let us know if that's the case and we'll help you to trouble-shoot the issue.


Please, let us know if this response was helpful for you or, of course, if you have any further questions.

Thank you
BJ

Can't upload video on PC


the computer might not automatically upload the file. it will detect the hardware, but not necessarily start uploading. if you have xp, try going into movie maker which is in your program list in the start menu. on the left hand side there is a few blue sentences, one is import video, another is import video from device. if you have your camera connected to the computer through firewire and have your camera on the vcr/playback mode, open movie maker and click import video from device, the computer will have already detected your camera, so the first option your given in the next screen should have the make and model of your camera to upload from.
