Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

I have a JVC GR-D740E camera with a usb firewire “Pinnacle 510 USB Rev: 2.0” (that works on windows xp).

I've ubuntu 11.10 in dual boot with windows xp.

I've done some steps with no success:

i've installed kino. I opened Kino having the camera opened and in play. When i push the capture button kino returns that the kernel module raw1394 hasn'l loaded.

I've tried with kdenlive that stopped with an error:

Fatal Error." "MLT's SDL module not found

If i do:

gp@gp-desktop:~$ dvgrab

Error: no camera exists

I've tried to find the module:

lsmod | grep 1394

No results

If i do

gp@gp-desktop:/dev$ modprobe raw1394

FATAL: Module raw1394 not found.

I put the modules needed (raw1394,dv1394,ohci1394,iee1394) in /etc/modules.

sudo gedit /etc/modules  

copying: iee1394 raw1394  video1394 dv1394

And after i've written a udev rule:

sudo gedit /etc/udev/rules.d/40-permissions.rules

Saving the file with these lines:

KERNEL=="raw1394", GROUP="disk", MODE="0666"  KERNEL=="dv1394*", GROUP="video", MODE="0666"  KERNEL=="video1394*", GROUP="video", MODE="0666"

But after the reboot the modules hasn't been loaded yet (and the same error in modeprobe)

I found, at this point, that i have to load other modules: firewire-core, firewire-ochi and firewire-sbp2, these are the new modules. I've installed and putting them into /etc/modules.

gp@gp-desktop:~$ lsmod

Module Size Used by firewire_sbp2 18414 0 firewire_ohci 35854 0 firewire_core 56937 2 firewire_sbp2,firewire_ohci

The modules has been loaded after the reboot THE SAME ERROR IN KINO and dvgrab.

i've written a udev rule changing the old module with the new. No results.

I don't know now what i've to do. Any help, please?
