Good afternoon, I have a Dell 1535 I would like to know how I can use the Firewire port to Fedora 12, and with what program? I have a sony camera. Thanks! :D

What happens after you plug your camera? does it appear as a standard USB drive, or something? try connecting it, and after about 10 seconds, type "dmesg" (no queotes) in a terminal. Look for the last messages, to see if your camera is detected.

I have seen a lot of people posting issues with Firewire. I don't have a problem at all with Fedora recognizing my 6-circuit alpha connector.

Is it the 4-circuit connector you are having issues with?

Ok! I just connect the camera and does nothing. Run the command "dmesg" and this is what came on the screen:

firewire_ohci: isochronous cycle inconsistent
firewire_core: phy config: card 0, new root=ffc1, gap_count=5
firewire_core: created device fw1: GUID 0800460106feffff, S100

My camera is a SONY DCR-HC48, and I use the 4 pin firewire cable. Thanks! :confused:
