Hi Gang

There appear to be people out there using a Firewire Adapter IEEE-1394a
2-port (Multi-IO Connectivity) card and not being able to capture
Camcorder DV data, I have the same situation.

I have also attempted to connect an iPod via the firewire card and it
would not function correctly. The firewire card does not have any issue
detecting the external device (Camcorder) although it does not allow
the external device to function as intended. Eg cannot transfer music
to an iPod or capture DV data from a camcorder.

I know this issue is not directly related to using Ulead VideoStudio 7
SE DVD (Patched)

When I start Ulead up my Camcorder is detected though I am able to hit
play and the camcorder tape commences play although the video is not
displayed. I hit the capture button and it created an AVI that is 66k
in size. This file does not increase is size from here. The application
crashes sayin to check that my device is connected and or functioning

I have a;

Toshiba Tecra S1
Intel Pent M 1.6
768 MBites
80Gig Hard Disk
ATI Mobility Radeon 9000

Do you have any suggestions or are able to refer me to a technical
article to help me out.

Is this a OHCI compliant adapter? (look under IEEE 1394 host

What 1394 chipset is this?
