Chapter 1
Introduction
What is OrangeLink?
The OrangeLink FireWire® host adapters add FireWire support to PCI or CardBus-based Mac’s or PC’s. They are ideal for
Apple Power Macintosh desktop computers or PowerBook G3 Series as well as PCs that need the advanced technology
offered by FireWire® (also known as IEEE-1394 or iLink).
What is FireWire 800?
FireWire 800 is the next generation of FireWire technology. It supports the IEEE-1394b High Performance Serial Bus
standard. The FireWire 800 implementation of the IEEE-1394b standard supports transfer speeds up to 800 Mb/s and
device distances can now be up to 100 meters through the use of special cables. FireWire 800 high-speed serial I/O
technology is particularly great for use with multimedia peripherals such as digital video (DV) camcorders and tape decks.
The OrangeLink supports all other FireWire peripherals such as disk drives, ultra high-resolution scanners, printers and
digital still cameras.
OrangeLink FireWire 800 Features
The OrangeLink FireWire 800 products function at the maximum IEEE-1394b rated speed of 800 megabits/second (100
megabytes/sec). OrangeLink FireWire 800 products are fully backward compatible with S100, S200 and S400 rated 1394
devices. The OrangeLink allows up to 63 devices to be connected in a chain through its standard 6-pin and 9-pin ports. The
OrangeLink can be used with third party video editing software to capture, edit and export full size, full motion DV video at
720 by 480 pixels at 30 frames per second. FireWire 800 can also be used in a workgroup network environment at close to
1000BASE-T speeds.
The Benefits of OrangeLink FireWire
The major benefit for OrangeLink FireWire technology is its ease of use. Imagine automatic device configuration, no device
IDs or terminators, simple to use cables, and of course, “hot plug” connectivity. Consider a FireWire disk drive for example;
you can disconnect it from one computer and connect it to another; no need to power down or restart. You can move whole
databases around your workgroup “live”! Or, when the office day is done, pop it into your shirt pocket and hot plug it to your
home computer.
The fastest growing use for FireWire consists of digital video (DV) camcorders. The digital format of these devices provides
precise audio and video capabilities in an original digital format that is more directly compatible with a computer than the
current analog video cameras. This means that the OrangeLink is ideal for computer based home video editing as well as
for more professional applications, e.g. Apple Final Cut Pro™.

Chapter 4
Guidelines for Connecting FireWire Devices
FireWire devices can be connected in any combination of branching and chaining, In fact, you can even loop your FireWire
800 chain back to your Mac for redundancy while performing live. There are no SCSI-style ID numbers to set and no
termination requirements. A FireWire bus can support up to 16 consecutive cable hops of 4.5 meters (14.76 feet) each.
FireWire 800 / 1394b allows the use of various types of cabling offering different speed/distance capabilities up to 800 Mbps
and 100 meters hops. For additional information on cable lengths beyond 4.5 meters, refer to Appendix E.
FireWire 800 /1394b hubs make it possible to connect FireWire 400 / 1394a devices up to 100 meters apart. Neither the
computer nor the remote devices need to support FireWire 800 / 1394b, because the FireWire 800 /1394b hubs and their
associated cables work with FireWire 400 / 1394a devices. FireWire 800 / 1394b devices can, of course, communicate over
long connections directly through their own FireWire 800 ports; no hub is required to gain this distance benefit in a pure
FireWire 800 /1394b connection.
The OrangeLink FireWire PCI products are designed to keep the FireWire network operating even if the computer is shut
down. Loss of power to the computer will not affect the operation of a FireWire board as long as it can draw power from
other devices on the FireWire bus. The OrangeLink FireWire PCI board draws its power from the PCI bus.
To connect a DV camera, plug the 6-pin connector on the supplied FireWire cable to the OrangeLink PCI FireWire Board
and the 4-pin connector to the camera’s IEEE 1394 (DV IN/OUT, iLink) port. Both connectors snap into place when properly
engaged. If you wish to connect two computers together (or if your device has a 6-pin FireWire port), you can obtain 6-pin
to 6-pin cables through an AV equipment retailer, electronics store or directly from Orange Micro.
The OrangeLink FireWire 800 / 1394b PCI board has two 9-pin Bi-Lingual and one 6-pin 1394a FireWire ports, as shown in
the following illustration.

•
Do not connect more than 63 (including the computers) devices at one time
Do not connect devices in such a way that any two devices have more than 16 cables directly connected between them.
Unused FireWire connections should be left empty. There are no terminators for FireWire connections.
Connect devices that require power from FireWire directly to the computer.
Do not unplug a FireWire device while it is being used. For example, do not unplug a FireWire disk while copying files
onto it.
If you have problems with digital video transfers make certain no other FireWire devices are being used at the same
time.

Capturing Video
At this point you should have already installed the OrangeLink software and BTV Pro software. The FireWire drivers will not
recognize most camcorders if the camcorder, Macintosh, and BTV Pro software are not started in the right order.
Performing the following procedures in order will quickly get you started capturing DV video.
•
•
Note:
•
•
•
Note:
•
•
Be sure that the Macintosh is OFF, the camcorder power is OFF and the FireWire cable is connected securely to
the camcorder DV port and the OrangeLink FireWire port.
Start your Macintosh.
For optimal performance; Set the Monitor Control Panel to “Thousands” of colors. Set the Memory
Control Panel to Virtual Memory OFF and Disk Cache to 128k.
When the Macintosh has completely started, configure the camcorder to Camera mode (some camcorder
manufacturers refer to this as Recording mode) and turn ON the power to the camcorder.
Listen to your Macintosh hard disk. When the camcorder is detected, the FireWire software will load and you will
hear a burst of disk access while the FireWire drivers load.
Set the capture scratch disk and folder: Pull down the Settings
“Preferences…” menu. Click on the “Frame Capture” tab. Click on the
“Capture destinations…” button to set which hard drive is your capture
drive. Drives that are too slow, fragmented or full will not work well.
Set BTV Pro capture scratch disk and folder to an AV/DV rated
drive (DV requires a sustained transfer rate of 3.6 MB/second)
with ample amounts of free space.
Pull down the Apple / Control Panels/ AppleTalk menu. Under the
Options button select Make AppleTalk Inactive. Capturing DV works
best when AppleTalk is inactive.
Pull down the BTV Pro Windows menu and select “Capture Controls”.
Now, when you wish to capture video click on the “Start Capturing
Movie” button. The same button will represent the “Stop Capturing
Movie” button.
Output Video to FireWire
To output your edited movie from BTV Pro back to your DV Camera or Deck you will need to perform the following steps.
•
Note:
Make sure your DV Camcorder is in VTR/VCR mode on standby. BTV Pro will take control of the camera and switch
it to record mode as it exports.
DV cameras have two kinds of record buttons (one for VTR/VCR and one for live camera mode).
•
•
•
•
Open the movie you wish to export.
Pull down the BTV Pro Movie menu and select “Output to FireWire”.
Click on the BTV Pro Play button to send your movie to the DV camcorder.
Once BTV Pro is done exporting video, it will stop the camera and place it back into standby mode. At this point you
can go to your camera and playback the exported video.
If your audio plays clipped during an Output to FireWire, you may not have a fast enough hard drive for DV output or you
may be running out of disk space. Set BTV Pro capture scratch disk and folder to an AV/DV rated drive (DV requires a
sustained transfer rate of 3.6 MB/second) with ample amounts of free space. You will get better performance if your movies
are on a separate drive from your Mac System drive. G3’s with SCSI drives should be capable of handling DV. Macs with
IDE drives may require a faster drive to output to DV. You can check what kind of hard drive you have by using the Apple
System Profiler under the Apple Menu. You should use disk-defragmenting utilities like Norton Utilities’ Speed Disk to
optimize AV/DV rated drives for best performance.
For additional Mac troubleshooting tips refer to Appendix D.
15
Additional FireWire Workflow Recommendations and Known Issues:
•
Editing DV is a CPU and hard drive intensive task. You may need to minimize your extension sets (via the Extensions
Manager and optimize your hard drives (using a Mac disk defragmentation utility like Norton Speed Disk) to get the best
possible performance out of your computer.
• Do not expect full screen overlay of video to play well on the computer monitor since the CPU is handling it. Use BTV
Pro to assemble your video, then export it back to your DV camcorder, which is capable of playing the movie back to the
TV monitor full screen.
• There is a QuickDraw 3D compatibility problem, which causes ATI overlay problems. You may experience your markers
being overdrawn by the clip overlay. To avoid this, you may disable QuickDraw 3D by creating a custom extension set.
• It is recommended that no other operations be attempted while Capturing or Outputting Video to FireWire.
• The current Apple FireWire 2.4 extensions allow for multiple devices, but they share the same FireWire channel for
sending/receiving DV data. This might lead to difficulties selecting between multiple devices. It is recommended that you
only work with one device at a time and turn off the other devices when not in use.
• Since DV transfers video and audio across a single stream, it is not recommended to attempt audio- or video-only
captures.
• With the current ATI Video Software Update 1.0, you will experience a frame redraw artifact during Play Edit in Trim
Mode.
For more detailed information regarding the operation of BTV Pro refer to the “BTV Pro OM manual.pdf” located in the “BTV
Pro OM Folder” on your hard drive.

Appendix C
Using Ulead VideoStudio on Windows
Ulead VideoStudio – QuickStart
Capturing Video
At this point you should have already installed the OrangeLink software and VideoStudio DV SE software. The FireWire
drivers will not recognize most camcorders if the camcorder, the PC, and the VideoStudio software are not started in the
right order. Performing the following procedures in order will quickly get you started capturing DV video.
•
•
•
•
Be sure that the PC is OFF, the camcorder power is OFF and the FireWire cable is connected securely to the
camcorder DV port and the OrangeLink FireWire port.
Start your PC.
When the PC has completely booted, configure the camcorder to
Camera mode (Some camcorder manufacturers refer to this as
Recording mode.) and turn ON the power to the camcorder.
Listen to your PC hard disk. When the camcorder is detected the
FireWire Software will load and you will hear a burst of disk
access while the FireWire drivers load. If you are presented with
the following “Version Conflict” dialog, click yes.
Check the Windows System/Device Manager for the following
devices:
1394 Bus Controller:
-Orange Micro OrangeLink OHCI IEEE 1394 Host Controller
Imaging Device:
-Microsoft DV Camera and VCR
Note:
•
The “Imaging Device” will only appear if Windows detects
the camera. If the above devices do not appear as
shown, highlight the device that appears under 1394 Bus
Controller and click on the Remove button at the bottom
of the Device Manager Window.
Then insert the
“OrangeLink Manual and Software CD” and select the
“Install OrangeLink Drivers” option. Restart Windows
then compare the above devices to ensure they appear
as shown.
Double-click the Ulead VideoStudio icon on your desktop. Follow the onscreen instructions to begin capturing video.
For any help on capturing video with VideoStudio, insert the “OrangeLink Manual and Software CD”. It should Auto
Start. Click on the box next to ”Browse This CD” double click on vstudio.pdf. You are now ready to start capturing video!
17
•
Verify VideoStudio settings. Point and click on the VideoStudio
File menu. The menu to the right will appear:
Verify the following Settings:
Select Device Control…
= MS 1394 Device Control
Change Capture Plug-in… = Ulead DirectShow Capture plug-in
Additional FireWire Workflow Recommendations and Known Issues:
Optimize your System
If you do not optimize your system you may get dropped audio or video frames. This can cause choppy sound or video that
does not appear smooth.
Run Disk Defragmenter on your hard disk. With all applications closed, click on the Windows Start menu and select Start /
Programs / Accessories / Systems Tools / Disk Defragmenter to start defragmenting.
Enable DMA for IDE hard disks. In the Windows System/Device Manager double click on Disk Drives. Then double click on
the icon labeled Generic IDE Disk. Select the Settings tab and click on the DMA box. Close all windows and restart the
Windows operating system. Not all hard drives support DMA. If any problems result due to this procedure, restart Windows
in safe mode and remove the check on the DMA box.
Interrupt Conflicts
Interrupt sharing conflicts can cause dropped frames;
device not found errors and general protection faults (GPF).
To resolve these interrupt sharing conflicts, view your
system resources by right clicking on My Computer on your
Windows desktop and selecting "properties." Double-click
on the Computer icon at the top of the System/Device
Manager. This will bring up a window listing your device
IRQ's.
The OrangeLink PCI FireWire boards work best when
occupying an IRQ value of 9, 10, 11, 12, 14, or 15 by itself
or with no additional devices (IRQ holder for PCI Steering
and other ACPI items refer to resource designations and
may be ignored).
To isolate the OrangeLink PCI board on an IRQ by itself, it may be necessary to move the OrangeLink PCI to different PCI
slots. While performing this operation, remove all non-essential PCI cards. Once you can capture video properly reinstall
non-essential PCI cards in your system.
Note:
Some systems are sensitive to about which slots contain active PCI cards. Put the OrangeLink PCI card in
the slot closest to the power supply. Try putting SCSI, Ethernet, Sound or VDD cards in slots below the
OrangeLink PCI card. If you have enough open slots, leave slots empty between the OrangeLink PCI card
and other PCI cards.

Appendix D
Macintosh Troubleshooting
Problem – Can I boot from a FireWire hard drive?
Suggestion:
Yes. FireWire booting is possible on all Macintosh models that have built-in FireWire ports with the exception of the Power
Macintosh G3 (Blue & White) and the Power Mac G4 (PCI Graphics) models. You may need to upgrade your computer
firmware before FireWire booting will work. There is no firmware upgrade for a Beige G3 or Apple PowerBooks that do not
have built-in FireWire ports.
If you put any of our FireWire cards in one of the new Macs with updated firmware, you can boot to a FireWire drive
connected to our FireWire card. As you can see, booting to a FireWire drive is not a function of the FireWire card
Problem – What are the minimum system requirements to use the OrangeLink?
Suggestion:
The PCI based boards can be used on any PCI based Macintosh. The devices that can be used are FireWire hard drives,
CD-R's, printers, cameras etc.... DV editing has more stringent requirements and may not be possible on some older
systems.
Problem – Apple FireWire will not install in my Mac OS 8.6 system. What should I do?
Suggestion:
Apple recommends FireWire software version 2.3.3 for systems with Mac OS 8.6 installed.
http://download.info.apple.com/Apple_Support_Area/Apple_Software_Updates/
Problem – My OrangeLink appears to be dead
Suggestion:
Ensure the OrangeLink is securely inserted into its slot.
Go to the Mac System/Extensions Folder and trash all FireWire extensions.
Reinstall OrangeLink Software. Refer to Chapter 2.
Problem – I have installed the card and the OrangeLink Software and now my Mac will not boot.
Suggestion:
Try moving the card to a different PCI slot. If you have other PCI cards, try switching the order the cards are installed on the
board. The Macintosh can be sensitive about PCI hierarchy. Move the OrangeLink board into the first PCI slot if possible.
Problem – I can capture video, but when I export I get blocky video back to the camera.
Suggestion:
If you have a processor upgrade card installed, confirm that the G3 upgrade card has the proper bus speed settings to
match your system. If you have a 50 MHz bus on your system and your upgrade card is running at 48.5, the timing
difference will cause this kind of problem you currently have. If your system has a 50mhz-bus speed, and your upgrade card
has your system running at 345hz, then your card needs adjusting.
Problem – FireWire does not function or I receive an error message when trying to access a device attached to the
FireWire card.
Suggestion:
There may be a 3rd party extension conflict with the Apple FireWire extension. The best way to determine this is to use the
Mac OS base extensions set. If the problem stops after restarting your system with this set, you have an extension conflict
and you will have to track down the offending extension.
Note: If you are trying to access a CD-RW using Toast, the Apple “FireWire Authoring Support” extension can create a
conflict. You should disable it in your Extensions Manager and restart your computer.
19
Problem – After launching BTV Pro OM. I receive the following error message "Could not find an Orange Micro FireWire
card or iBOT camera".
Suggestion:
BTV Pro OM is a special version of BTV Pro that only works if it detects an Orange Micro FireWire card or an iBOT camera
under Mac OS. If you have one of these products installed in your computer and you still get this error message, remove
the Orange Micro product from your computer and reinstall it. Verify that Apple FireWire extensions are installed. If you
have an iBOT, verify the FW iBOT Camera extension is in your System Extensions folder.
Also try setting your Extensions Manager to Base 9.x. Enable the FW iBOT Camera extension, if applicable. Restart you
Macintosh. This will eliminate the possibility of an extension conflict.
Other recommendations:
1. You should optimize your hard drive by defragmenting it. Install all of the most current software updates from our
website, Apple's web site, and Adobe's web site.
2. Run your system with an extremely bare extension set. Save an extension set specifically for FireWire editing. Your
video editing software and camera will be the only things you are using, so you can disable many extensions to speed
up the system.
3. Disable "OrangeLink PC card enabler if not using PC Card.
4. Disable QuickTime VR, and QuickTime Musical Instruments.
5. Disable the Desktop picture (Appearance Control Panel).
6. Disable all USB extensions, SerialShimLib, and HID Library.
7. Disable any extensions from current software programs such as MS OFFICE.
8. Disable Printer extensions, and other device extensions not FireWire.
9. Remove all old extensions from software and printers no longer being used.
10. When running your camera, run it from the AC Adapter. Run no other devices or programs. These steps should greatly
reduce or eliminate the problems you are having with video editing.

Problem – I followed the instructions, loaded the Driver software, but no 1394 Bus controller is listed in the Device
Manager.
Suggestion:
Before the Orange Micro OrangeLink 1394 Host Controller will appear in the Device Manager, you must install the
OrangeLink card in your computer. After installing the card and re-booting, Windows will prompt you to insert the Windows
CD to finish installation. The "Orange Micro OrangeLink OHCI IEEE 1394 Host Controller" will now appear in the Device
Manager.
Problem – I installed the software. I installed the card but when I look in my Device Manager there is a yellow
exclamation point on “Orange Micro OrangeLink OHCI IEEE 1394 Host Controller.”
Suggestion:
This exclamation point usually means there is a resource conflict between the OrangeLink card and another card in your
system.
Shutdown your computer and move the OrangeLink to another open slot.
If you do not have open slots, swap slots with another card in your system.
Restart your computer. Windows will then re-configure itself and re-assign resources. Check your device manager again.
If the exclamation point is still there then repeat the process until it no longer appears.
Problem – I get choppy sound or video that does not appear smooth.
Suggestion:
Check the amount of RAM in your system. The recommended amount is 128MB or higher, preferably 256MB or more.
Check your hard drive for available space. Editing DV takes up large amounts of disk space. As your hard drive fills up the
slower it performs.
Try to free up space on your hard drive by deleting unneeded programs and files.
Optimize your system.
Problem – Windows 98 SE does not detect my camcorder.

The OrangeLink FireWire 800/1394b PCI card 9-pin ports are based on IEEE 1394b and enables a 800 Mbps transfer rate.
They are backwards compatible with original 1394 FireWire devices with 6-pin or 4-pin connectors. With the appropriate
cable, the 9-pin ports work seamlessly with legacy FireWire devices. Orange Micro sells cables to go from both 6-pin and 4pin connectors to a 9-pin, and 9-pin to 9-pin (http://www.orangemicro.com/fwcables.html).
The 9-pin ports are capable of operating at 100, 200, 400, and 800 Mbps, depending on the device to which it is connected.
The 9-pin ports are bi-lingual in that they support both IEEE 1394a and 1394b standards. Using a cable with a 9-pin
connector at one end and a 4-pin or 6-pin connector at the other, the 9-pin ports are capable of directly connecting to all
existing FireWire devices. Using a cable with 9-pin connectors at both ends, the 9-pin port is capable of operating at 800
Mbps.
The IEEE 1394b standard defines long-haul media (beyond 4.5 meters) using CAT-5 UTP and several kinds of optical fiber.
OrangeLink FireWire 800/1394b PCI card is interoperable with such cables but cannot be directly connected to them. To
use long-haul cables, connect the computer to a 1394b hub that has the desired kind of long-haul connectors. If the hub
has a bi-lingual or beta-only port, that port can be connected to any of the FireWire 800/1394b PCI card’s 9-pin ports.
