Firewire trouble Hv40
I'm having trouble connecting my hv40 to my macbook pro. My computer DOES have a 9-pin firewire port. I recently ordered a 4-pin to 9-pin firewire cable that I thought would work (http://www.amazon.com/Hosa-FireWire-.../dp/B000VB9BVW). Unfortunately, it didn't connect to my camera. I wanted to get it right this time and thought I'd ask; will this cable connect to my Hv40 (http://www.buy.com/prod/tripp-lite-f...201684350.html)?
If not, what should I do?
Thank you for your time. Please don't harass me or send me to another thread without explaining.

Both cables appear to be of the correct type. The 4-pin connectors are notoriously wonky, may need a few tries (or may have to be compressed slightly).
Are you sure settings are correct both on the camera and in the software?
