Mac Specs: 1.25GHz G4 PowerPC Mirror Door

royboy is offline
I was wondering if anyone could help me please. I have a PowerPC G4 (1.25GHz) Mirror Door and it appears as though my firewire doesnt want to work with my DV movie camera. I downoaded from the same camera and cable a week ago and all was fine. IMovie HD just cant see the connection. I plugged the camera into my sons Imac and it works fine.
Is there any diagnostic check that I can perform to prove that there is a problem somewhere. (Interestingly enough, when I woke up this morning, my Mac had turned itself on by itself... There had been a power outage in our area... all our clocks had to be reset...). Grateful for any help for a newbie here,
QUOTE Thanks
