Bafo BF 2010

Hi, I just bought a pcmcia firewire just for my BF 2010. I tested BF2010 with my 60gb Maxtor in firewire and it looks fine. The problem comes when I tried my 160gb Maxtor drive, it does not repond. The disk was detected as it appears in the systemtray but in "My Computer" nothing added. Does this product supports 160gb hds?

I just tried the FireWire ports (not USB as before). WinXP (sp3) picked the drive up in seconds, no driver required (VIA chipset in my 7 year old laptop w/FireWire port). However, mine is an 80gb drive. Transfer rate very fast compared to what USB 1.0 would be. Also finally found my OEM drivers... on the old drive I'm testing ;^D. Turns out the NT/XT driver is buggy for USB anyway. Finds then dismounts the USB connection intermittently. Very unreliable. New cable makes no diff. I would like to upload the driver and manual PDF for you but there is no option for either. The FireWire device is found in "Control Panel > System > Device Manager" reports the device as "SBP2 Compliant IEEE 1394 device". The driver is (2001) 5.1.2600.5512 version of "sbp2port.sys". See if you's shows up in similar fashion. If not, and you're sure the driver for the PCMCIA card driver is good (and the card itself is good), the best solution is to dust off your friendly local FireWire capable PC or drop in an old FireWire card in it for under $10 from your local PC shop's surplus box.

I just only ask why i cant not transfer my record video on my computer? only the card reader playing... thank you.

This model does not support video streaming in USB. Use firewire cable and your pc must be equipped also with this port, if not look for expasion port available like PCMCIA. Firewire cable and PCMCIA card (if needed) are available in most computer store.Good Luck!

Can u install afire wire card into a compaq presario c700

Yes, but it needs to be a Firewire PCMCIA card. If you do not have a spare PCMCIA slot then you need to remove the other PCMCIA device so you can insert the Firewire PCMCIA card when you need it.

Have you tried right clicking on the drive and going into properties. Click on security option and make sure that all the permissions for the drive are active with the exception of special permissions. Also look at the advanced security settings and make sure that you have full control permissions. Hope this helps.

Pcmcia card

i think you can connect the 2 using a firewire that can be connected thru the usb.

the camcorder has this with it. its a small cable which you connect from the cam into the laptops usb.

pcmcia port is usually for portable nics and extender slots. please do check with the firewire fisrt as this is the main route for transfering data from cam to laptop.

Hi there, I am fairly sure that PCMCIA card will fit in it.

Have a look at this picture.

The slot you looking for is on the top right of the picture, there is a lil button u press in, it will pop out, push it again and it will eject a sort of blank card, this is make sure nothing accidentally gets into the laptop when a card is not in use.

Hope it helps

I have mine, it works well but in a very slow data transfer. I looks like it is made for the very first version of USB, I havent tried the firewire yet. Try to go to add new hardware and install the driver that comes with the package. I am also using windows xp.
