    i own a compaq presario 2517at laptop...it has an unusual firewire port...the shape n size of the port is same as that on my camcorder (not like the usb port)...i kno dat the connector on the camcorder is small...but the port on the laptop should resemble usb.....

    is there any special adaptor required to plug in ieee1394 devices to the laptop?? i have the port pics...how do i upload them on this thread??

    i am unable to find a cable for this....

    plz help me.....

    I think thine thing is the Compaq has 4 pin Firewire port but the Camcorder ( like my sony ) needs 6 pin firewire port...
    Do this simple thing ...get a 4 pin to 6 pin firewire cable and you are way to heaven :)
