Firewire not detected

Jan 17, 2010
Hi all,

Im seriously in need of advice over here. I have a sony HVP- 1000E Video Camcorder. It works fine but when I plug the firewire to my desktop pc, the camcorder just couldn be detected!!

I have plugged in, plugged out, restart pc many times, tried to google for help... but to no avail. Now I cant get the raw footages out... N Im dry....

Any kind souls out there willing to give me a hand?

Yup, thanks for the reply. I have the firewire port, which detects my firewire HDD when I plug in. The device states IEEE 1934, and I have the cable as well. However, when I plug in the Camcorder, no camera device is displayed at the capturing option in my Adobe Premiere.

Any idea?

Can you determine if your Firewire port is working?

(Assuming you are on Windows Vista)
[Start button] -> [Control Panel] -> [Device Manager]

Look for IEEE 1394 Bus Host Controller
If it is listed and there is yellow exclamation mark on it, then it should be working.

Try connecting to a different computer with Firewire?

Helping you to diagnose your problem does help which part is the problematic part.
