My motherboard's built in firewire chipset is Texas Instruments, and the above software's don't like the drivers for that. What has been recommended is to install the Microsoft DV Camera and VCR device. This seems easy enough, and after searching my hard drive I even found the appropriate .inf and .sys files there (msdv.inf, msdv.sys I think). The problem is that every time I plug in the camera and attempt to install it, I can never get it to install as a Microsoft DV Camera and VCR device. That option is not available. My question is:
Does anyone know of a way to do this on XP? Is it a limitation of the onboard firewire, i.e. it can only be installed with the Texas Instruments drivers? Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
