Kino & coriander camcorder


Hello i have a "sony handycam DCR-TRV255E" i have just got a firewire cable and hoping to get some video editing done firstly i installed kino as i heard it was good but i was having no luck so i heard about a programme called "coriander"so i open a terminal and type "coriander" i get the following error message.
"Warning:could not get handle to your ieee 1394 card.
please check that the card is present.
The ieee 1394 modules(ieee1394,ohci1394,raw1394,and video1394) are loaded.
check you have read and write permissions on the /dev/raw1394 and /dev/video 1394 devices,"
I am running Debian 3.1 on an "intel celeron"The firewire connection on the computer is built in to the front panel.
This is the output of "lsmod"

raw1394 permissions

master,
The error message was clear (Kino has one too in its Preferences window). It said to make sure the raw1394 module is loaded, which you have done. But it also says to make sure you have read and write permission to /dev/raw1394, which you did not show and is likely your problem:

$ ls -l /dev/raw1394

Does a particular group have read/write permission to that device? If so, add yourself to that group: e.g.,

$ sudo adduser `whoami` disk

USB vs FireWire

You can not capture the video from your camera via the USB connector. The USB connector only provides access to the still photos from the digital photo camera function of your device.

Also, Coriander will not work with your device. Coriander works with a different class of FireWire video camera. You have a DV camera, and you will want to use Kino.
