Connecting to computer

Hi all,

I've just bought a 2nd hand EOS 1Ds (Mk I) and started playing around with it. I've tried searching past discussions and read about others having problems, but I couldn't find any answers to my problem.

I'm trying to connect my 1Ds to my laptop via a IEEE 1394 cable. I've loaded all the software and I've connected the camera.

The instruction manual says that the act of physically connecting the camer completes the process by installing some drivers (?). When I connect the camera, Windows XP gives me a CODE 10 error. All the other software says it can't find the camera.

Is this a common issue with the 1Ds? There's so many variables, the camera, cable, computer, s/w. I've already resisntalled the software and drivers twice. Should I keep trying or is it a lost cause?

Thanks for any help.

T.
