I have a new PC with a MCI Z97 Guard-Pro SKT--Socket 1150 Motherboard. I asked for a Firewire Card, BEST PCI-E 1394 to be fitted. Having tried all suggestions from "Sony" to make the connection I am wondering if the Multiple entries "Times 9" of "PCI standard PCI-to-PCI bridge" has anything to do with my problem, I am new to the terminology used on computers, so please excuse my lack of knowledge.
What Sony camcorder (model name/number) are you trying to connect via Firewire? What capture software are you using? What OS are you using? If I am not mistaken Microsoft did not include the Firewire driver with Windows 8 and later or rather dropped support for Firewire.
