yes , i did , but i'll have to look fro my notes to see how i did it.

or search here , it may be somewhere on this webboard already.(found one link from webboard)

has the file for the following:

Updates the 1394 drivers to the latest level. This updater should be installed only if your camcorder requires the latest drivers.

Note: The same installer is used for all products and only needs to be run once for all applications.

Prerequisites: Digital Origin MotoDV-Lynx FireWire card (card that ships with PhotoDV, IntroDV, MotoDV and EditDV), MotoDV v1.4 or later.

Do not install this updater for use with OHCI 1394 interfaces.

I'd stick with Gary's solution for the moment but there is a tiny program element that may (or may not) solve your problem.

It enables a number of programs originally created by Digital Origin to work under XP using OHCI standard FireWire cards (not the DO FireWire card).

I'm email it to you in a zip - but only use it if you have a standard FireWire card installed as well.

Do, of course, make sure that you copy the original off somewhere safe before overwriting with the new version.
