hi...just got an advc100 off ebay to use with my macbook. my understanding is that with a firewire connection, you don't have to have the power adaptor, and it didn't come with an adapter. but when i plug the firewire into my mac and push the power button, nothing happens.
so my questions are...
--might i have the wrong firewire (and if so, would it plug into my computer/the converter okay, which it does?)
--was i wrong to think you don't need an adapter if you have the firewire?
--since i haven't plugged any of my analog devices into the converter, could that be why it's not turning on?
any help much appreciated!
QUOTE Thanks
