Okay, I'll admit to becoming a Luddite. Windows 98 threw me and I've never recovered. But I muddle along...
So I am trying to connect the Fuji S2 camera directly to a computer for direct image download onto the drive, using the Firewire 1394 system.
Computer is a 2.5 GHz eMachine with 256 meg of ram running Win XP home edition. It didn't have a 1394 port, so I plugged in a Adaptec PCI three 1394 port 400/800 mhz adapter card. The computer hardware configuration says the Adaptec Firewire card is recognized and responding.
So I connect the Firewire cable from the card to the S2, power the S2 up with the AC supply, and the Fuji interface software says the camera is not connected. Went through all the power sequencing several times, rebooted the 'puter, checked cables, etc. but still no go. The Fuji software just doesn't seem to see the camera.
Anybody got an S2 wired up to a computer through an Adaptec or similar Firewire card and working? Any ideas on things I might try other than finding a different 1394 driver?
