View Full Version : DMK not working with win 7 laptop!

Hi guys
Been a while since I last posted so a merry xmas to everyone.:-) I have a DMK 21AF04 firewire cam and it works perfectly on my old XP laptop with pcmcia card. I recently bought a win 7 laptop with 4 pin firewire. I made a `y` lead so the DMK can get its 12v power but its still not recognised when plugged in. I simply connected the 12v to the white lead going to pin 1 and used the black pin 2 connection for gnd but nothing is seen in Device manager at all. Installed the latest drivers and checked the 12v supply at the power plug I made and all seems fine its as if the camera is not getting the 12v or could it be something else please?

thank you for your wishes. However, maybe the polarization is wrong, so you switch +/-. The camera is protected against wrong polarisation.
