>This problem occurs if you connect a 1394a or 1394b FireWire device to a 1394b port. This problem occurs because Windows XP SP2 changes 1394b ports to S100 speed when you upgrade.
Are you using a 1394b Firewire port? Most folks are not. And, even if you were, the miniDV capture negotiates a speed that is appropriate for the device. Since miniDV transfer speed is slightly less than 30 Mb/s the Firewire hub will always connect at the S100 or ~100 Mb/s speed.
Ken, thanks for the information. I'm using a 1394 Firewire port, but someone (on the web)suggested the patch for "non detection" problems.
My Digital 8 camcorder wasn't detected by XP and after installing the patch, it's detected each time. This could, of course be nothing to do with the Update.
thanks for the tip on KB885222 however when I click on the downloaded file, I get an error in the setup box saying access denied. Any ideas??
Are you using XP or Vista? You must be Administrator or Administrator-equivalent to install.
Thanks for the reply. I using XP and yes, I'm the administrator. I am able to download all other M-soft updates (KBxxxxx)- just not this one.
Why do you think you need that update?
Sorry for the late reply. I need the update because I am having trouble capturing DV from my Canon ZR10 camcorder to computer. Most often the message is "offline" or "no device". In the rare event the camera is detected, the monitor controls are "grayed out". This happens with both PE2 & PE3.
Using Gateway 510XL, P4, 2.8GHz, 1GB ram, 128MB, 400MHz GeForce FX 5200G video card, 80GB hard drive (7200rpm) with appx. 60GB free space.
Any thoughts/comments? Thanks
Paul -- the fix John reported is more likely to have been from a "refreshing" of the Firewire driver. You could just try deleting the Firewire driver in Device Manager, reboot and Windoze will replace the driver via plug-and-play. This has reportedly worked for some folks. -- Ken
