I have turned on the preset for Realtime-Playback and Export (External Device): DV: 25 720x576i on both the menus.
But I view only a blank (blue) screen, without video on external monitor and on camcorder LCD !
I tried also with an new optional PCI (expansion slot) Card with 4 Firewire ports: it runs all OK!
But I don't want fill one PCI slot...
My new PC is in warranty and I want that runs as it is!
Please help me!
The fact that a PCI-FW card works correctly indicates that there is no software problem, nor a cable problem, nor a camera problem. That leaves the motherboard firewire port. No other logical explanation. Do you have other devices on the on-board firewire port daisy-chained?
I don't have others devices attached on the on-board Firewire Ports.
I have just attached my camcorder.
I have also tried to install this such of driver for "jmicron 381" chip of on-board Firewire, of P45Platinum motherboard:
JMB38X_WinDrv_R1.00.34_WHQL.zip for Win Xp,Vista, Win7.
at this page:
This is the Homepage (click on "Download" Button):
But nothing changed!
So I have uninstalled it.
I am desperate...
Go to Device Manager, remove/uninstall your on-board firewire device, find New Hardware, then manually select fire wire/IE1394 devices and from the list of available drivers (there are three) select the one indicated with 'Legacy' in its description. This is a known problem with Win7.
I have installed "Windows XP Professional Corporate Edition x64 Bit", not Windows7 !
Your solution is not applicable.
In Win XPx64, in Device Control Panel I have just one driver, not three...
Sorry, I have overlooked the fact that you are using an unsupported OS that has been known for many problems. Maybe you ought to upgrade to Win7.
