  1. Hi, Thanks for the download link for firewire legacy drivers. I am trying to install this on Windows 10 and when I go to manually install I always receive the message that Windowa has determined that I have the most up to date driver. I cannot get round this and am not able to install the legacy driver, any thoughts?

    • you have to manually select the installation directory of the drivers and have windows install it from there
      even after the setup
      the setup only installs the files in a directory, not fully as an operation driver by default

      • doesnt work at my device. I have installed the legacy driver, but my camera -Sony DC TRV 270- still not visible in my computer.

      • sorry. Improvement: I can’t install the legacy driver. Windows says there is a problem. Device doesn’t start…. any idea? The firewire card works always until the Windows update…

      • from the hardware manager you need to replace the current install driver (device specific) with the legacy driver

        it worked for me. in some cases it might not work out 🙁
