Firewire and Windows 7


If you've been paying attention you'll have read about my troubles with Service Pack 3 of the venerable Windows XP operating system. At the end of the posting, I wondered allowed if Windows 7 would play nice with Firewire.

Well the very kind Oliver G√ľnnel of Allied Vision Technologies, (www.alliedvisiontec.com ) sent me an answer.

Yes,” he said, Window s7 works well with Firewire b (1394b for those who prefer the numbers,) but it's not so good with Firewire a. He went on tell me that information on this is available at the AVT website, under the heading of, “My FireWire camera is not recognized under Windows 7,”.

Don't say I never give you anything useful!
