Hello, the camera isnīt recognized by my laptop. I have an IBM Thinkpad R-40 with Texas Instruments PCI-1510 PMCIA Card and Win XP, I connect the camera with a Y cable 6 pin to 4 pin with 12V power adapter but in IC Capture is always the same: No devices found.:(

Where is the problem, perhaps in the PCMCIA Card?

Thank you very much

Juan

Juan,

Yes, the new Thinkpads can have problems with compatibility to some FireWire chipsets.

Also try to switch +/- of the power supply. The camera is protected against this.

Stefan, I tried to swicht +/- of power supply but nothing happens. Perhaps the solution could be exchanging PCMCIA card and connecting the camera throught a powered external hub.....
