Firewire and sony handy cam woes

I have a lite-on 5001 and a HC30 handy cam but can’t seem to get the firewire working properly. Any body else have this issue? The camcorder detects it but the dvd recorder doesn’t operate it or show video from that input…

sure would be nice to get that working as it was the reason I looked for this feature when I shopped for this camcorder.

Try this thread:

Some newer firewire works better than others, eg my JVC works well.
