I have an APEVIA X-JUPITER-JR S-Type X-JPJST-MG Metallic Grey SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Retail case with a six pin firewire on top, along with two USB and two audio hubs and i'm trying to transfer high quality video from my Sony DCR-HC96 to my computer with a firewire cable I bought. I'm pretty sure I connected the cable properly, as there are only two places on my motherboard that fit the hub's wire. One says audio and my motherboard stops beeping if I disconnect it. Both USB hubs work fine, and so do both audio hubs. The wire looks fine and plugs in snugly, but I have no other ways of testing it, so I can't tell if its the cable or the case. Nothing seems to happen most of the time when I plug in the firewire. My camcorder has never recognized the firewwire cable (USB works, but has lower quality). Twice my computer has given me a balloon saying found new USB device, then saying USB device did not install properly and might not work, that only happens every millionth time though. If possible, I would like to get my firewire cable working, or find a way to get the same quality on USB. If not, I would look into buying a firewire expansion on my computer.
