I tried to use the workaround and now my pc is not recognizing the DCT when I connect it. It could be my 1394 card but I have tried the large and small connectors and no go. I checked the advanced settings on the DCT and I'm not sure what the 1394 interface settings should be to make it work. Mine shows:
Active Ports: 0
Data XMission: Not active
5C Implementation: NO
Copy Control: Copy Free
Cycle Master Node: YES
IRM Node: YES
Root Node: Yes
Loop Detected: No
EUI-64: then a long code (0x00-------------7)
COnnected Devices: 01
0x00-------------7 (same as above)
Is it possible my port has become inactive? Or is this what I should see?
Firmware is still version 16.53.
Thanks in advance to anyone that can help me. In the meantime, I'll try to trouble shoot the firewire ports on the pc
