Ieee 1394 Device not recognised

Hi,Using Firewire EEE1394 to connect a Panasonic NV-GS 1 DV Camera to capture video in Vegas 5.0 edit suite on a dell dimension 8300. All was working fine without ANY problems.
After reinstalling XP Home (after a disk clean up) the camera now is no longer recognised. There are no conflicts in Divice Manager. The Net Adapter 1394 is showing as working and fine, as well as the IEEE 1394 bus host controller. There are no IRQ share issues from what I can see.
I have removed the card, restarted and installed to a different slot and all is well in device manager, IRQ but still camera not recognised.
Flashed the BIOS to latest version. Fully up to date with WindowsUpdate.

I am stumped on this one, other than starting again with a Format and XP Home reinstall once more. I cannot understand why every thing was working before, nothing has changed. Please help.

Did you reinstall any related drivers for the camera, and the editing software ?

Are you sure that the card and camera are both functional ?

Can you test both with different equipment ?


I hope this helps !

All drivers reinstalled. Card and camera are the same ones that worked previously. I wouldn't have thought testing them was needed as they worked fine before an XP reinstall. But I will try and double check.

The camera was working fine before reinstalling xp home. Tried installing Firewire card in another pc and card was showing all was well but still the camera didn't work. Could it really be the camera when it was working fine before the disk clean up.

Just uninstalled all cards apart from sound/vga to make sure there was no IRQ sharing going on. Plugged dv camera in .... no luck still. HOWEVER when I turned the camera off I got the Di Dong noise to say disconected. Whats happening !!!! This is doing my head in

What does device manager show ?

What about using the free winDV to record from the camera.

Well, after going down every route I could without testing the camera, I decided I HAD to test the camera on a pc that had an excisting firewire and a dv camera that worked. Guess what ??? The camera IS broken. So even when you think your devices are working ok ALWAYS test them elsewhere before pulling your hair out. Many thanks to those that posted up.

SInce my first comment says

I think that I should receive points.
