XP SP2 disables Sony DV Cam Firewire connection

Hello,
Has the issue of XP SP2 causing Sony DV camera connected via firewire (IEEE 1394) to not be recognized ever been resolved? I see the question asked a thousand different ways, but no answers.

  1. Maybe the question is being asked to the wrong people. Ask Sony!

    Been there, done that, got the t-shirt. It's a known (admitted by MS) XP SP2 issue. MS issued a Hot fix patch which doesn't solve the problem.

    What about SP3? Has this been addressed in SP3?

    SP3 only goes as far as not undoing what the hot patch is supposed to fix. It's quite a mess, I've been searching everywhere for an answer since early April. No one seems to have one. Many have just given up and bought new equipment. I'm nearly to that point.
