Firewire 1394 device not recognised by XP
Posted on 2004-04-18
Please can someone help!! ...
I have an Elite L7VTA motherboard with an onboard 1394 socket.
Win XP (Pro) can see the socket (under device manager) but if I connect my DV camcorder to it, XP does not see the camcorder.
I have tried the following but have failed miserably:
1) Tried the camcorder & cable on a neighbours PC - all ok
2) Tried updating the VIA chipset drivers - made no difference.
3) Uninstalled the "VIA OHCI Compliant IEEE 1394 Host Controller" under device manager and rebooted PC. On reboot XP found and reinstalled the socket - but still does not see the camcorder when I plug it in.
4) Tried updating the driver on the "VIA OHCI Compliant IEEE 1394 Host Controller" to an "OHCI Compliant IEEE 1394 Host Controller" but an error occurs.
Any help would be much appreciated.
