Thread: Fire Wire Card use

  1. #1

    Fire Wire Card use

    I am running SuSE 8.1 with a Biostar motherboard and an AMD 1800 processor.

    I have installed a Fire Wire card (IEEE 1394) so that I can dowload video from my Sony DV camcorder. However, I do not know what I need to in order to capture the video. The software that I have doesn't show a capture function, so I am at a loss as to how to capture the video onto the hard drive.

    Any thoughts on how to do this?

    This is just a wild guess cat /dev/firewire > video.avi ;D

    I don't know anything about FireWire besides the fact that's it's a security risk unlike anyone I've ever seen...

    plug in a device and BAMM, the stuff is designed so that you MUST have FULL access to the entire memory.. You can overwrite everything you like...

    The sane solution involves glue...

    But if you absolutely must use FireWire here are some sites that might help you

    especially the last one is a nice ressource for FireWire stuff.
