Hello,

since I reinstall XP + SP2, I can't download my own movies from my SONY
camcorder trought the firewire port.
throught the USB port, I can without probleme download my pictures from my
camcorder.

I try with severals software and I get already the same results.

Somes details:

Wenn I turn on my camcorder, during 3 seconds the camcorder is recognized by
Windows (opening a little window to ask me what to do) and then the windows
desappeared and I can't use the camcorder.
As well as Windows, my video software ask me that there is a new video
sources and ask if I want to use it. I've not enough time to answer (by
click on yes or no) and the camcorder is not available.

I don't no what is the conflict with Win xp but I think that it is a problem
with windows

I already delete and reinstall the drivers for the IEEE1394 port in the
peripherical menu. Each time I turn on my camcorder, it appears 2 second in
this menu and then desappear.

Did someone has an idee what to do in this case ?

Regards,
Tommy.

PS: sorry for my bad english :-)

Hi Tommy,
Try this, roll-back to SP1 Drivers for Firewire.

Go to C:\WINDOWS\Driver Cache\i386 & C:\dllcache in SP1 and copy out
the
following files
1394bus.sys is in C:\Windows\System32\Drivers
arp1394.sys is in C:\Windows\System32\Drivers
nic1394.sys is in c:\Windows\System32\Drivers
ohci1394.sys is in C:\windows\System32\drivers
enum1394.sys is in C:\windows\system32\drivers
Copy out the following files to a new folder you can call
"Firewirefix," (without quotes)

Stop XP Sp2 from re-installing it's drivers again by:
Renaming the SP2.cab file to (e.g. to SP2old.cab)

Replace the SP2 versions of these files with the SP1 versions in
C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers & C:\WINDOWS\system32\dllcache in safe
mode.

Go to device manager for your ohci firewire card and update SP2 drivers
to the SP1 drivers by pointing to Firewirefix.(warning message normal)
Reboot.

Best,
Treeman

Hi,
Sorry for butting in, but i have the same problem, my sony DV not being
recognized by the computer. I have firewire functioning on Xp with sp2.
Treeman i have followed your idea before on other threads about reverting
back to Sp 1 firewire drivers, but have not been able to manage it properly.
A couple of questions to clear it up!
1. renaming SP 2.cab file to SP 2 cabe old file In my directory
WINDOWS\DRIVER CACHE\1386 The file is a zip file. Is this the correct file?
2. When copying out the driver files, I can find C:\WINDOWS\Driver
Cache\i386 but can't locate C:\dllcache in SP1
3. How do you know that these driver files in C:\WINDOWS\Driver Cache\i386
are SP 1 files and not Sp 2 files
4. When you say replace SP2 version of the files with SP1 versions, do you
mean delete them, or merely put the new folder with copied files.
5. If I can't find this folder (:\WINDOWS\system32\dllcache ) in system 32
am I looking in the wrong place?
Reading this back, I sound like a twit! Hope it makes some sense. Thanks

Hi Pete, Hi Treeman,

as Pete, I try to apply your procedur in order to solve this problem.
And as Pete, I have some problem to anderstand you steps, sorry :-)


What I do is (I do all the step in safe mode):

I search and find the SP1.cab file in C:\WINDOWS\Driver Cache\i386
I couldn't find any dllcache folder even if I tick the "display the contents
of system folders" in the options of windows explorer.
I extract from the sp1 file the following files
>> 1394bus.sys is in C:\Windows\System32\Drivers
>> arp1394.sys is in C:\Windows\System32\Drivers
>> nic1394.sys is in c:\Windows\System32\Drivers
>> ohci1394.sys is in C:\windows\System32\drivers

Only 1 file was not included in the SP1 file
>> enum1394.sys is in C:\windows\system32\drivers

I rename the SP2.cab file into SP2old.cab
I replace all this files in C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers except enum1394.sys.
I deleted it! (I do a backup of all this files)
But I couldn't replace this files in C:\WINDOWS\system32\dllcache because I
couldn't found this folder.

I deleted then the driver for ohci firewire card in the device manager but I
couldn't reinstall it like you write because for reinstalling it need a .inf
file and not .sys file.
I reinstall then this driver as recommended by windows (did it use the sp1
files or the sp2, I don't no but I think it use the one I copy into
C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers (sp1))

After rebooting my computer, it doesn't work. The camcorder appear a few
seconds but desappear after a few seconds.

What did I wrong

Thanks for your help
tommy
