  • No firewire input

    Having used Edius 5.5 for a couple of years or so, I decided to upgrade my computer by installing a Z77X-D3H motherboard and i7 chipset. In addition to the hardware improvements I decided to move up to Windows 7 from XP Pro. Although my machine is now jet propelled by comparison it fails to recognise either my Pioneer DVR-3100 DVD recorder or my JVC VHS/Mini DV Cassette player/recorder through either firewire or composite, yet it still reads both of my Sony Z1 cameras. I have tried every possible permutation of settings without success. Does anyone have the answer?

    Did you roll back to the Legacy FireWire drive.

        I've seen similar things caused by boot order in the past. Did you try powering up the DVR and JVC before you power up the PC?

        How are you connecting the JVC and DVR to it? As far as I can tell that MB does not have an IEEE 1394 (AKA firewire and iLink) port or composite video port on it. Some firewire cards are known to be problematic, cards based on the TI chip seem to be most reliable.

          fwire

          One thing to check first- is windows seeing the devices but Edius isn't?

          On my Dell 1647 laptop Edius would capture standard def but the fwire Dell used would not support hi-def fwire capture. I bought an external express slot 54 fwire adapter and it captured hi-def just fine.

          I too have had issues with the order in which devices are booted. I had to attach fwire after other devices were booted first.

            Thanks folks, no luck yet but I'll keep trying. I will make enquiries with a view to obtaining a card based on the TI chip and, yes Trillium, that does seem to be the case, Windows appears to be recognising the equipment but not so Edius

                If you have an express card slot or reader the fwire interface that has delivered excellent HD capture is only about $25.

                  No Firewire input

                  I'm not too sure what the current firewire card is, but I will find out soon because I have no other alternative than to try something else. It may be a Gembird but I can't be certain.

                    P.S. I have tried booting the devices in a different order but still to no avail. However, it doesn't seem to make any difference when capturing from my cameras, no matter what order I boot them in.
