Sony TRV900 DV camcorder no longer recognized by XP SP3

Sony TRV900 DV camcorder no longer recognized by XP SP3.  Was working fine for many captures until Sony Vegas capture app hung and was killed.  Now I can't get XP to recognize the device in Device Mgr.  Tried turning camcorder off and on, unplugging & plugging firewire, rebooting, etc, but there's no indication the camcorder is there anymore.  Any ideas how to fix?  Thanks.

I have had the same issue happen with my HD camera.
What I did was to remove and replace the battery with a spare
And it went back to working.

Make sure that you have a full charge on the camera and then try again.

Thanks for the suggestion. Actually I made sure my camcorder was plugged in so I wouldn't have to worry about draining a battery during the captures.

Are you sure the firewire port itself is not dead?  If a port goes bad while the software (Vegas) is in progress, it will freeze the application and usually the computer.  Check that the firewire port is listed in Device Manager.
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.

Kent, I did a System Restore and rechecked my firewire connection, and it now works, so one of those 2 things did the trick.  Thanks very much for your help.  (And sorry for the delay, I thought I had replied earlier in the week, but apparently I didn't do something right since it's not showing up as closed)
