Hi Andres. I wouldn't expect that you can record to just any firewire hard drive direct from the camera. Normally you need a special drive that has a controller inside, to convert the video data into files that can be written to the drive. The controller also recognises the start/stop commands from the camera so that it doesn't just record all the time.

I'm not exactly sure what you're trying to do, but maybe you can find some useful info from this thread: http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/canon-xl2...recording.html
