1- Click the Start Button, type devmgmt.msc in the “Start Search” box and press Enter.
2- Expand the "IEEE 1394 Bus Host Controllers" node in the device tree on the right hand pane

3- Right click the host controller node select "Update driver software ..."
4- Select "Browse my computer for driver software"
5- Select "let me pick from a list of device driver on my computer ..." and Check the box before “Show compatible hardware”.
6. Choose the second option---1394 OHCI Compliant Host Controller (Legacy), and click next to update the driver.
went back to Xp pro sp3 and did get the driver installed. video glitches every 5 sec or so. any ideas? D-VHS doesnt record much either before crashing. just noticed vlc lets you record(hidden by default) but the video pix elation is still there even in the recording.
