Camcorder not talking to PC via IEEE1394

  chchch7789 15:21 26 Dec 2009

My JVC GRD728EK miniDV camcorder will not communicate with either of my PCs (one is Vista,the other XP) via a IEEE1394 lead and PCI card setup. The lead is standard firewire (came in a kit with the card) and the small end goes in the camcorder's DV Out socket, the large end in the socket in the firewire card at the rear of the PC. I have tried checking the Device Manager of both PCs and the card appears to have installed correctly ("VIA OHCI Compliant IEEE1394 Host Controller" displayed). Looking at a posting on another forum, I see that the recommended lead is slightly different in appearance from mine in that it has 2 small sockets (see click here). Does anyone know of a suitable driver (I've searched for ages!) or does the suggestion of a different socket combination make sense? Could my lead be faulty?(unlikely-was bought new)
I have a stack of old miniDV tapes to upload to my PC in order that I can store them in an external hard-drive format for posterity (assuming this is a more stable platform for long-term storage than miniDV format).
Any ideas?
