IEEE 1394 Bus Drivers


This section describes how to develop drivers for devices that connect to IEEE 1394 buses.

Where Applicable

IEEE 1394 bus drivers are used to connect a computer with digital devices, such as digital cameras and camcorders.

Developer Audience

This section is intended for use by C programmers. Before you use this section, you should understand basic driver development. For more information, see Getting Started with Windows Drivers.

Run-Time Requirements

Devices that connect to IEEE 1394 buses are supported on the Windows Vista, Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Microsoft Windows XP, and Microsoft Windows 2000 operating systems.
