Default Help! Problems with firewire connections


I've got a poblem with my advc 110. I have used an advc before and connect the converter and computer with an firewire 4-pin to 9-pin. I have a firewire 9-pin expresscard on my computer.

Until a few week everythinh worked perfectly. But then a got a problem to get the connections between computer and converter. The computer find the firewire connection but the screen in my program is black. It's the same when I used another computer or another program.

The problem is that the firewire cable works when I connect the cumputer (9-pin) with and a firewire camera.

I thought it was a problem with the converter so I bought a new one (advc110). BUT the problem is still the same. The computer finds the firewire but the screen in the program is black.

Once a few days ago I get the picture in to the computer but the picture was'nt good. I saw only half of the tv-screen and it's was jumping.

What would I do? What is the problem? Firewirecable? The converter (the new one doesn't work to so..), the expresscard?

Search this forum for "9-pin" and you will find several threads with discussion of some issues that have come up in the past with 9-pin firewire cables and connections.

What is your system (computer, OS, capture software, and firewire adapter)?
Any change in drivers or OS updates since it last worked?

You are using the optional power supply for the ADVC110, yes?
That's the first thing I'd check since the cable works with another device.
