Hi, I am trying to connect a Sony HVR-V1E camera to my PC so I bought a PCI-Express card to add firewire ports to my computer. The device installed ok and the camera shows a little symbol on the screen to confirm that the cable is connected but the PC is not seeing the camera.

I realise this could be a lot of things but I am thinking it might be that the PCI Express card needs to be powered, does anyone know if this is likely to be the case? If it is then what is the name of the connection shown below and where would it be plugged in to?

Thank you :eek:

It's a 4 pin Molex connector, you should have several matching connectors coming out of your PSU. Plug one of them into it, they will only go in one way round and can be quite stiff so to avoid damaging the card I would take the card out first, attach the Molex then re-connect the card.

No, there are none coming from there, there are only black ones of a different size :(

Never mind, it's working fine now without power. It seems the camera is very specific about what settings you have it on. :)
