Hi George

I own a Sony DCR-TRV 22E that I sometimes use to capture footage with no problem. I'l have to agree that it is probably a malfunction of the camcorder's firewire port. Also guessing it is a cable-port bad contact or even a burned port on the Sony. In many cases manufacturers suggest powering off the camcorder before plugging the cable in and out to the firewire card.

One other thing to try before sending in the Sony for servicing. In Device Manager, make sure the device driver for the firewire card is "OHCI IEEE 1394 Controller," NOT "[Brand Name] OHCI-Compliant IEEE 1394 Controller."

If not, update the driver in Device Manager and choose the generic OHCI driver.

Solved a host of problems for me.

Hey palmier, did u get it solvd? I haf the exact same prob n i tried everythin:

1. changed cables.
2. diffrnt computers.
3. switchin on n off, first wit cam on then pc THEN first pc on n then cam.
4. drivers installs perfectly, USB workin.

From various forums, ive learnt tht mayb its a trouble due to XP pro's SP2. they say i ve to get sme sp2 files replaced by sp1s. They even said Microsoft doesnt claim its OS is built for an i.Link connection. Well, i m just takin the cam to a service center, will let u guys know wot the prob was. Pray tht it works for me. Very hardly i ve able to buy this cam n now i cant use wot i ve just shot! PITY ME!

Yes I had solved the problem. I changed the firewire card. I tried this since it costs very little and to my surprise everything is now fine! Hope you all manage to solve your problems.

Does your laptop have a pcmcia slot,or express card slot,you can buy cards that slip into these slots with all sorts of adaptors/connections,i seen cards with 2 firewire ports.This would be your easiest solution,the card could also go in another laptop which you might buy in the future.

Type pcmcia to firewire in your searchbar.

Paul.
