I've just taken delivery of my shiney new laptop which has come with a firewire port on the front. I'm keen to capture some video of my new son and bought a firewire 4 pin to 4 pin lead to connect my samsung vp-d55. Having now spent the best part of a couple of hours trying to get the computer to recognise the camera i've given up. Nothing at all happens when i plug it in. Any help would be fantastic.
the laptop came with a dvd rewriter and a software package called Roxio. when this is running and i connect the camera it doesn't pick up that its been connected. I've tried it with Windows Movie Maker but no joy either.
