I've been searching the internet high and low but till this day I cannot find anything. It just seems that no one in the history of using the 1D's have ever had this problem before...
XP fresh format, all updates, even tried older service pack 2 only. I'm using 32bit. XP only supported with 1D and 1Ds.
Drivers fresh from Canon.
Dedicated firewire PCI card with reliable TI chipset.
Firewire from Audigy 2 ZS sound card.
All firewire ports working, tested with my firewire card reader.
Firewire cable works, computer detects camera.
Drivers install fine.
Installed EOS utility and everything from original CD as well.
The camera simply cannot connect to the computer. It detects, but in the device manager it says "The device cannot start. (Code 10)"
It happens with ALL of my 1 series firewire cameras. I've tried this on TWO different machines with different hardware running XP.
There's nothing on the internet about this issue. It's driving me nuts because I want to change and remove the previous author's name in the personal functions.
Does ANYONE have ANY idea?
I've listed everything that you should need to know about the system above. There's nothing wrong with the system as it's a perfect working system. There's no drivers for Windows 2000, and Windows ME is a terrible operating system to use. I might have to try it as a last resort...
* And FYI, 6 pin to 6 pin cable to connect the 1D/s Mark I to the computer does not detect no matter what machine or what firewire port I connect it to. Even my Windows 7 machine.
HOWEVER. I got it to detect by using the 4 pin to 6 pin cable of the 1D Mark II/N, and plugging the 4 pin side into the PCI firewire card and 6 pin to the 1D/s.
