Firewire Camcorder Not Recognized


Changes in Win7 have made FireWire (aka 1394 & i.LINK) capture more difficult if not impossible for older camcorders utilizing this method.


If your camcorder is not recognized, then you will want to try setting Win7 to a Legacy driver: (note that some older generation devices simply will no longer work :( )
