Sony TRV350 is not detected on my PC

  1. Hi,

    I have bought Sony TRV350 camcorder recently. I have installed Sony
    USB Driver, Image Mixer from PixelA(shipped with cam). With USB
    connection, everything works fine. But the problem is image quality. I
    have USB 1.1 support on mother board which is not support good capture

    To improve image quality on my PC, I have bought IEEE 1394 card (don't
    have manufacturer name on the card!) and no driver supplied with it.
    It is VIA 6306 chipset on the PCI firewire card, has 3 external and 1
    internal ports. Windows XP and Windows 2000 (with service pack 4) OS
    detected the firewire controller (OHCI compliant) and the card looks
    working fine. I have connected TRV350 to this card using 6 pint to 4
    pin cable. My cam is not detected. I have tried most of the
    combinations(with AC adaptor/battery, keep mode switch in VCR etc). I
    think, it's plug and play device and if I connect cam, windows should
    say "new hardware found" and try to find its driver(and install it). I
    don't have i link(sony's way) drivers supplied with my cam.

    Can someone help me how to make sony cam work with firewire? Please
    suggest if I am missing something. Thanks in advance.

  2. This happened with my firewire card till I plugged it directly intop the
    Thanks a lot. My PCI firewire card has this connector for DC power
    input. It also has two jumpers to select internal 12V or external 12V.
    Do I need to set these jumpers to turn external 12V "ON" and internal
    12V "OFF" ? Or do I need to set both internal & external 12V "ON" ?
    When I received this card the jumper setting was internal 12V "ON" and
    external 12V "OFF". Please suggest.
