Re: XH A1 FIREWIRE JACK

As did I until earlier this year when using two identical CANON XLH1 cameras. I connected the first one to the computer via firewire and the camcorder died. in a state of panic i called the dealer to determine what was wrong with the camera. after smelling what seemed to be burning metal it appeared that the circuit board had fried. I then connected the second camera, and low and behold, the same thing. In base cases the cameras were sent to Canon for service and in both cases the problem was caused by the the voltage being reversed via the firewire cable INTO the camera, frying the boards. I had never, ever heard of this before. To make matters worse I own the little brother XHA1 Canon camera, and now I am really nervous about the sensitivity of the firewire connection. Does any have similar experiences with firewire connections and the canon cameras. This sounds like it could be Canon thing as the dealer has never had issues with other cameras getting fried by the firewire cable.
