    I have a Panasonic PV-DV53 mini DV Palmcorder comera and cannot get it
    recognized under Windows Vista Home Basic. It comes in as an unknown device
    and cannot find drivers. I have an Acer Aspire AST180-UA350B PC with 1.5 GIG
    of Ram and a built in 1394 (Firewire) Port. I am current with Vista update
    patches and have checked the Panasonic website for drivers, there are none
    present at this time. I also sent an email request to their Tech Support for
    suggestions. Will this be fixed in a Vista Service Pack or sooner?

    Here's the fix .... 'Windows Vista does not enumerate an IEEE 1394
    device that you connect to the computer

    When you connect an IEEE 1394a device to a computer that is runnin
    Windows Vista, Windows Vista does not enumerate the device. However, i
    you connect the same device to a computer that is running Microsof
    Windows XP, Windows XP enumerates the device successfully

    *Note* An IEEE 1394a device may also be referred to as a FireWir
