On the verge of giving up
By tdw on Jan 20, 2005
The PC booted fine, discovered the new hardware and we were away (or so I thought).
Plugged in the iPod. Nothing! No bubble telling me new hardware had been detected, no change in the hardware devices tree, nothing at all! iTunes says there's no iPod connected.
Plugged in the camcorder. Nothing (as above). Studio 9 says it can't initialise a 1394 device.
Getting desperate, I tried the cable which came with the new board, disabled the on-board 1394 device in the BIOS and even booted up in Linux to see if I'd get any more joy there. Alas, no. Neither the iPod or camcorder are recognised, so it's back to square one
The only thing I can think to do now is to try both devices in someone else's computer - preferably someone who has had their 1394 port(s) working.
