Anybody got some Idea of what I am doing wrong with this Front Hub that Connects to a PCI comby card.
Problem Only with the Firewire, my JVC DV camcorder will work OK if plugged direct into the Firewire port on the PCI card. Hear is what I havbe done the Firewire on the Hub did not have a Firewire Plug to fit into the Socket on the PCI card. it had separate plugs to fit on Firewire Header pind on a MOBO. So I got a Firewire Plug from Maplin and six core wire. Only used about three inches to connect to the plug and fitted pins on the end so that I could just push the plugs on. I downloaded Firewire Connection pin out also I checked for Power+ and Ground wire on my XP Desktop. As these are the main one, If I got those wrong the whole shebang goes BANG. Pin1 is 12 Volts+ Pin2 is Ground. the other wires are as I fitted
I have check these out after plugging on to them that I get a reading from the Firewire Socket pins to the Socket pins that go into the card. But it will not see the Camcorder from this Hub.
Am I missing something out.
PS the Comby Card is a
and Audio all are working on a Win98se Comp including USB2. As above the Firewire Does Work if I plug the Camcorder cable direct into the Card with the Comp Side Removed.
One from Maplin, As above the Card works OK on all, including Firewire, It only from the front Drive bay Hub that it does not work. Although as I said after Making up the last bit with the Firewire Plug on it that it does not work from the Hub although I have check the connections Ene to End with Meter. Card is
A NO Name that I can see only thing it says isUSB2.0+Firewire+ATA+PATA Combo
I am Running this in a Win98se computer, and as above all works as it should direct from card, and alll bar Firewire Works From Front Bay 5-1/2" Hub All drivers have been loaded for both items
Looks a bit like this but at the back it as 3 USB and two Firewire. Problem is I wanted to us the front bay one if I can get it working. But if you look how the USB sockets are mounted on this card you will see what I mean. click here
