firewire not detecting dv camera
I've got a Sony DCR-HC30E camcorder and im basically just trying to connect it up to the pc to transfer the video from tape to my harddrive. Now i kno generally you would use USB for picuters, and a IEEE 1394 port for the video, plus the quality is better etc etc.
But on my pc i didnt have a firewire port so i just bought one for a few quid, and it got here today. So i inserted the PCI Card, and then plugged in the included i.link cable into that and my video camera, and turned it on. i then switched to the play/edit mode as the instructions with the camera tell me to do, and it says 'DV in' on the camera LCD, showing that it is connected. But on my pc, no sign of it. No programs can fine the camera, its just not there.
any ideas at all?
i went to update my drivers, and it says there are the latest versions, so i cant think of much else.
