    Strangely enough, it didn't even occur to me that my Firewire port might be
    named rather literally, so I just plugged my DV camcorder into it.
    Strangely, no incendiary after-effects were noted.

    BTW, you might want to check the system clock on your system, as it appears
    to be a day fast.

    I'm using a DV Camera, external HD and filmscanner on my built-in 1394
    ports - no problems so far (2+ months).

    Two folks recently posted here that they have burned up equipment on the
    built-in 1394 port on their IC7-Max3. I just finished a Max3 build and I do
    a lot of video editing with an expensive camera and don't want to do a smoke
    test. Any one use this firewire port successfully?

    Any help appreciated.

    1. MN - you are a great help . . .thanks.
    2. You are right Richard - I was a day fast. Thanks and also thanks for
    risking the DV. I will try mine soon I guess based on this and:
    3. Chris - thanks. Just what I was hoping to hear. Will test soon. I knew I
    could count on this group as I have many times in the past.

    I took my Sony IP7 into a service centre (see earlier posts) today and they
    are going to check it out, it will be interesting to see what they say has
    caused the problem

    Well got the quote £500 new main pcb board needed, so thats f*^king great
    news!! still don't really know whether the MAX 3 fried the IP7 or the other
    way round but if I had to bet I'd say the IP7 shagged the board
