Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be the expert working with you today to help and resolve the problem you have posted.
I am sorry to know that you are facing problem your computer.
how are you trying to connect the computer to your GL1
can you tell me a bit more about the GL1 device?
make and model number?
it must have come up with a usb cable do you have that?
you need a cable which is one side firewire and the other side usb you would need that cable.
Firewire ports dont come with modern computers these days.
try different usb ports and one of them should recognize the camera hardware attached as usb comes with 1.0, 2.0, and 3.0 the camera must be 2.0 compatible.
do you have another computer or can you try to check the camera on a different computer then we can make out if the cable is good or not.
drivers are required when the computer detects a new hardware attached to the computer. When you connect the camera does your computer say new hardware found?
if it does not recognize then its the cable or the usb port and if you connect any other device to the usb port and it does recognize then its not the usb port its the cable.
its very simple in that case if the cable recognizes other devices that means the cable is good and the computer usb is good as well, the only thing left is the camera get the camera port checked from a camera repair tech.
