I recently got a Motorola dcx3501-m from comcast and I want to be able to copy video from the firewire port.
I am using a laptop with Windows XP Pro, PCMCIA firewire adapter PPA Int'l, and 6pin-6pin 6ft highspeed firewire cable.
Windows detects the adapter and installs the nessesary drivers. I then plug in the firewire cable into the adapter and then into the Motorola dcx3501-n's firewire port. It does nothing. Windows does not find any new hardware. I run capdvhs and it says capture device not found.
Troubleshooting I've tried:
1. unplug and replug in firewire cable.
2. unplug and replug in firewire adapter into laptop.
3. reboot laptop.
4. power off/on motorola dcx3501-m box.
5. force install stb drivers. But since it does not see hardware it fails.
Did they disable the firewire port on the Motorola dcx3501-m ? Or am I doing something wrong?
