    Hi Rod,

    Could you please let me know why you choose to install the x86 version of FlyCapture2 and not x64?

    There are two possible driver configurations for our Firewire cameras.
    1) Using the driver of the manufacturer on the FW host controller and our PGRCam driver on the camera.
    2) Installing our FirePRO driver on the FW host controller to be used for both devices. I believe this is limited to some host controller manufactures.

    You can use our DriverControlGUI to switch between drivers. Could you please try the different driver setups on your system?
    Please reboot after any change. It might be also beneficial to try the x64 version of FlyCapture2.

    What FW host controller are you using exactly (chipset, Vendor/Device ID)?
    As I understand from your e-mail, you just want the raw images from the camera and do the Stereo Vison in Matlab yourself?

    Thanks,
    Markus

    Hi Rod,

    Texas Instruments should be a good choice for the host controller. Have you tried installing this driver on the TI host controller? C:\Program Files\Point Grey Research\FlyCapture2\driver64\FirePRO

    In the past we usually suggested LSI and TI host controllers.

    I would stick with IEEE 1394b to have the maximum data rate available. Firewire b to b cable.

    What kind of computer are you using? Maybe this Thunderbolt adapter might help you:

    Did you make any progress in the meantime?

    Thanks,
