One of my last hurtles in crossing over completely to Ubuntu is getting my videos from my DV camcorder to my laptop. Here's the issue - My laptop is a few years old and does not have built-in FireWire (IEEE-1394). I bought a PCMCIA to IEEE-1394 adapter card that works great in Windows, In Ubuntu Hardy using Kino the card is not even recognized. I've loaded all the packages I could find but with no success.
Is there anybody out there who has the same thing but has gotten it to work? What card are you using? Or, how did you get it to work if it didn't work the first time?
