dv firewire functionality lost after upgrade

after upgrade, i tried capturing video (dv camera: sony dcr-trv19) and got

i can't find the solution to restore the firewire setting.

'Same .02 I just gave in another 'I-just-upgraded-to...' thread:

OP, with any operating system I've used, a comprehensive backup of personal files followed by a clean OS install is the way to go.

In the case of desktop machines, installing a new OS onto a 2nd hard drive (each drive being partitioned with a storage volume for backing up/archiving files), and dual-booting with the old OS until the new one proves itself is a further prudent approach to avoiding temporal torture. :)

BTW. IIRC Ubuntu Studio 10.04 (the 32 bit version anyway) does not use a real time kernel (apparently said rt kernel wasn't ready in time for 10.04's release date).

For now a generic kernel has been used instead.
