Hiya I have recently bought a sansung camcorder and it wasn't until after realised that I did not have a firewire facilities on my computer - although it is only three months old. I went to pc world where I bought the computer and was sold an Belkin Firewire PCI Card - but I have plug in the cable to bouth pc and camcorder but it doesn't work. According to the instruction book with the card I do not need a driver because I am using XP can anyone help me - in easy layman terms please - or is it just that I have got the wrong card.

Hi everyone and thanks for your advise but I already use movie maker - its just not registering that I have put new hardware in the pc. Will probably have to go back into PC World - they call themselves Techguys - joke or what.
when into system and devise manager and this what is showed IE1394 Bus Host Controller -Texas Instruments OHCI complaint IEEE 1394 Host Controller -Texas Instruments OHCI complaint IEEE 1394 Host Controller Does this mean it is recognising the card I have put in - or do i have to do something else. It may end in me taking the pc back to pcworld to sort out - money i don't really want to spend.
Your card seems to be working OK if there are no yellow or red symbols beside the above entries. If you double click on one of the -Texas Instruments OHCI complaint IEEE 1394 Host Controller entries it will tell you the status of the device. It might be the cable is defective or there is a setting in the camera which you have to enable for PC transfer.
