    Firewire not recognising a Sony camera

    Hi,

    I have this Sony DSR-250 that i need to transfer to a Toshiba laptop but now i don't have anything when i'm using the firewire on the Laptop.

    Usually i have a sound when i connect the camera but there's nothing anymore.

    What could be the reason for this behavior.

    I tried another firewire cable with the same result

    Thanks for your time

    I tried an external HD using the same firewire connection and it's not working also but the HD is working if i use a USB cable.

    Anything else to do to troubleshoot this?

    I am asuming you are downloading pictures. I tried a couple of months ago to download some video from two different sony camcorders, tried both xp pro and win 2k and neither would reconize that the firewire was plugged in. I think that microsoft is having issues with the firewire and camcorder components. My ipod works fine via firewire. Why do you not just use the usb.
