the cable is not faulty. It works on the other PC with the CANON and the SAMSUNG. The Laptop recognices the SAMSUNG but probably not correctly the CANON. Can I check somehow, if this fault is on XP level, Firewire level or on MM level?
Checking the properties of the firewire connection, I cannot see a device. With USB it is different, this interface shows me always the device type and sometimes the name.
