Is it possible for .NET to communicate with devices on FireWire (IEEE1394)?
If so, how? Thanks.

The win2000 DDK has some support

and there are 3rd party SDKs like

and Im searching for any dll you may be able to use, Texas Instruments would
be an excellent starting place since they make chips and want you to use
them; If you do it from scratch it requires making a Kernel mode driver

but I noticed not all links work, or they changed product lines

here is the 1394 trade group

and after lots of searching, there are many bad links. seems like its tough
to find something for user mode, just kernel level stuff is free?

I have found and downloaded a sample SDK from http://www.pionsys.com/
they appear to be very good.at firewire

However, this demo requires Visual C++

No, I haven't yet persued it. I may need this to communicate directly to a
Nikon camera via Firewire; however, I need to get the camera SDK before I
can look into it and I am still waiting on that.

May be a bit, but once I get this I will look into it and let you know. I
was just curious on how easy it would be to get to the camera via Firewire.
