Problems with 1394 connections
on Mar 15, 2004 at 10:33:09 pm

Hi There!

I used Jon's specs here on the site as the basis for my new NLE (thanks Jon!). I love the machine and it's been working flawlessly up to this point.

I built this machine to supplement my other NLE which is slower than the new one. I've been able to edit video in PPro and burn DVDs in Encore with no problems. Works great! However, I hadn't yet tried to capture video from my DV cams, and when I tried this morning I found that I couldn't get any connection at all to the 1394 ports. The USB ports all work perfectly.

I tried both the front and back 1394 ports but got no response from either my old Sony DCR-VX1000 DV cam or the new Panasonic PV-DV953. I also have a Maxtor 250Gb One Touch external drive that has both 1394 and USB connectivity that I brought over and tried too connect to the new machine via 1394, but it wouldn't see it either.

I checked the BIOS and the 1394 option is definitey enabled there. I also cracked the case and double-checked all the connections and they were all as they should be. I also checked the Device Manager and could not see any 1394 devices there.

Does anybody have any insight as to what the problem might be? I'd greatly appreciate it!

Thanks much!

Whoops! My motherboard is a ASUS P4C800 Deluxe. NOT the P4C800-E Deluxe listed previously. Not sure if that makes any difference, but it might.

Thanks.

I have the same motherboard and have had no problems with my 1394.
The 1394 port is part if the motherboard and uses a VIA chip.

I checked the VIA site and it states that XP should have detected and installed the drivers automatically.

I would try to reinstall the 1394 drivers through the control panel and if that doesn't work, exchange/return the motherboard for a new one.

I wasn't able to even get XP to recognize the 1394 hardware on the motherboard. I did some research and discovered that the problem I'm having is fairly common, but that there doesn't seem to be any real solution, other than buying a simple firewire card.

The firewire connectivity is the only thing I'm having problems with. Otherwise this machine rocks. So I simply disabled 1394 in the BIOS and will pick up a firewire card tomorrow and be done with it.
