Firewire hard drive not seen
on Apr 13, 2005 at 10:40:39 pm

Hi
I have an ancient but adequate system. Win98SE and Pinnacle DV500. Digital videocam connects perfectly via firewire. But external hard drive resolutely refuses to be seen by system when connected to firewire socket. Drive is ok - when connected by USB it is fine (Drive can be connected by either USB or firewire)
Any ideas, anyone?
thx
George

hey george,

we're still using our DV500 card on our old machine. it's a good setup.

but to use it as a "normal" DV device, ie: to connect drives and other firewire devices, you have to upgrade the drivers to the latest version. or, make that the LAST version of the software.

the earlier drivers would capture from your DV camera, but not work on other firewire devices.

Thanks for the tip (after all this time - that surprised me!). I've retired that PC now anyway - but may need to resurrect it if I need the DV500, so I ought to update drivers anyway, I guess.
Cheers
George
