Hey, where did you get the port isolator? I'm trying to find one for my HD110. I already blew the firewire, fixed it, and I really don't want that to happen again. Please let me know.
I've tried other links people posted but they were dead-ends.

Thanks!

These cameras were full of design flaws. It's the same story with original tape mechanism, which was notorious for braking down.

Ben,

I have 2 HD100s and invested in a couple of firewire port isolators as per Tim Dashwood's suggestion several years ago and thankfully, I have had no problems with my cameras. I went tapeless 2 yrs ago, capturing directly into my DR-100 units, and I simply leave my port isloator cables attached to the cameras ALL THE TIME so that I never forget to use them. And of course, as you already know, ALWAYS power off both camera and HD/computer/dect before attaching or detaching the cables.

Here's where I got my cables. You can even have them custom designed to various lengths with right-angled connectors for an addtional fee. Just make sure you carefully consider which angle/direction you really need before ordering if you decide to go that way.

FireWire Port Isolator - 6pin - 6 inch

Cheers,

Michael Lafleur
