My pc is not picking up my camera – comes up with "capture device initialization error" or "Device Offline". Device manager shows no yellow marks and bios seem fine too. I formatted my drive and reinstalled all the drivers too.
So I was able to try my 3 cameras out on a couple of other computers at a pc repair shop with new firewire cable and they didn’t even pick them up. So for some reason the firewire ports must be faulty.
How easy is it for these ports to go faulty? it is strange they shouldn’t work all at once..
Now I’m looking to buy a cheap one to use as a cassette deck.
