Response to: RE: iSight Drivers? -- offer for help and question

Scott,


I think USB is 5v and 1394 is 12v, so I am not sure if it will work. I know PCI based cards that fit into a desktop or tower provide power, but I have not seen any for laptops (all the PCMCIA ones I have seen do not provide power from the PC - but use an external transformer).


I already had the iPod power supply, so that solved that problem for me. Another alternative is a powered 1394 hub, these come with a power supply that will power devices attached to them. All of this is a pain for PC laptop users, due to the extra devices required. Maybe someday they will get a clue and put powered 1394 into laptops. I use 1394 for external drives as well as the iPod and cameras.


I have been toying with the idea of creating a power take-off from the Dell power supply plug, but have not had any time to investigate it.


Warren

            • Could the problem be a faulty ground?
