Subject:   Connecting iSight to a Dell Laptop -- 'almost' there but still need help(sigh)

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

The adapter from firewire 4-pin-no-power to firewire 6-pin-with-power just arrived in the mail. Looks beautiful. The power supply is ... 9v/1.1A . Not 12v as Warren said iSight needs. I hooked it up, and the PC recognized it as "Apple Computer_Inc. iSight", found no driver and so loaded a "Generic 1394 Desktop Video Camera".


Unfortunately, when I use it with the Audio/Video Tuning wizard I get a completely white picture and if I put my hand in front of it I get a rather brownish-blackish useless set of horizontal lines. I'd be happy to post a picture here or send it to anyone interested.


Is the problem likely to be that I really need 12v, or is there something worse going on?


I can't think of anything to do but go and buy a 12v power supply. (Unless someone tells me that a different driver is needed)


All help sorely appreciated.

      • Could the problem be a faulty ground?
