'Haddock' you have PM.
Thanks again for following.

What you inform here above is absolutely right and that's the only way to process to connect. That's what I do. Connecting the camera with computer and camera on must never be done... it can burn the electronic of the camera by a short circuit ....

I am still trying and searching but production takes me a lot of my days.

Those were a nice little safety, but alas, Kramer discontinued those several years ago, so the used market is the only place you would find these.

I was about to buy one of these, back in the day, having fried a chip on a DSR11 but a retired very senior Sony Broadcast engineer, who looked after my Sony decks and cameras, showed me one that was fried more than a piece of Kentucky chicken.
It seems they were not quite the real deal.

They were only supposed to protect against ESD while plugging in, and even with them, plugging in to a cold port would still be my recommendation.

I have, however, seen people force a 6pin FW400 connector into the port facing the wrong way, which is actually not that difficult to do if you are the type to be too forceful with connectors (I had to try it myself on a dead firewire card one time to see). That said, the spark guards probably would not protect against stupidity.

Another problem with FW400, is that the ports can get loose and sloppy from repeated insertions and mis-alignment with excess force when inserting the connectors. This makes it easier for the power pins in the 6pin port to get shorted against the data pins. This will seriously fry the firewire chip to the point where the chip will be visibly burned and/or "explode". This is quite possibly the cause of the KFC chip you mentioned. The ESD that the spark guard protected against would not visibly damage a chip, but it would still kill it.

Personally, I have never fried a firewire chip, bent a pin on a DB9, DB15, SCSI connector, CF Card, etc., but I have seen all of the above and more from other people. I am very careful about not forcing connectors. With the possible exception of computer 4pin molex connectors and maybe some automotive connectors, if a connector does not mate with minimal resistance/force, you are probably putting it in the wrong way or are not lined up correctly, and you should stop and re-evaluate.

I spent 15 years as a Certified Electronics Repair Technician for Sony, JVC, Teac/Tascam, Sharp, Hitachi, and a few other brands, for both Broadcast and Consumer equipment, as well as a system integrator for most of the available NLE and DAW systems from the mid 90's to the late 2000's (currently in-house tech for a post production house), and there have been many moments over the years that made me scratch my head, as I marveled at what people are capable of doing.

Hello to you all.

I am very ashamed and embarrassed but I have to be honest. Despite I have NOT found any solution to obtain a HDV capture via the Computer NX with Windows 7 (to have a plan B with the Windows XP)....

I should beforehand have a beter look to this camera HDR-FX7 that I bought only to be able to read "old" HDV (on miniDV cassette).

I was focusing on the HD/HDV connection situated on the back ... and did not see on the bottom a very discreet hatch... Opening it I discover 2 others output and a slot for SD card (to store picture): a USB output and a HDMI output.

A simple connection to my other Windows XP computer equipped with the HD storm and "Tataaa" I can capture with Edius 5.51. ... Plan B is now operationnal.

My apologies for the loss of time I caused you ... Shame on me. And thanks to you all for collaboration.

No worries, this thread may prove to be useful to someone else in the future.

BTW, I use my HDR-FX7 via component out to a BM Intensity pro and VelocityHD software to MotionJPEG as a live imager for frame-by-frame movie film capture.

Thanks for info. I did not know that HD could be captured via Component input of the HDstorm... the camera has also an analogic component output.

Have a benefit black friday !
