I have purchased a Firewire 4 to 6 wire cable and a USB 6 wire adaptor. The Magix software, recently bought, fails to 'see' the camera. I have tried switching into Play mode at various different points, no joy. Do I have to get a Firewire port fitted or buy another piece of hardware? Completed many VHS recordings in past few weeks but first attempt at Mini DV. Lenovo desk top running Windows 10.
Moving on from initial problem. I have purchased a PCIe Firewire card for the Lenovo H520 desktop. Tried installing it in two slots but Magix fails to see the input when camera is connected , on and running. Checked Bios but there was no option to 'enable' card slots. The card could be faulty, any suggestions?
