I don't know if it's the right place to post this question or I should go to StackOverflow, but I'll give it a try.
I've got my camera connected to PC. It works just fine. But sometimes, let's say every 10 minutes, it 're-connects' to the computer which makes a process of capturing a video from a tape impractical.
I'm sure that the camera works fine by itself, because on the other computer everything works fine. I know that in order to find the core of the problem I should check if the cable is not damaged first or if there is something wrong with Firewire adapter card inside the computer, but I do not have access to a second cable or card.
So is there any programmatical way to find out what the problem may be?
