Today, I purchased a CVS red camera (with preview LCD). The firmware shows as 6550. I've constructed an interface cable using a Centronics printer cable according to websites I've read.
When I connect the camera, Windows (xp pro), a balloon-help thingie says "USB Device not recognized", and device manager shows "Unknown device". The LibUsb drivers are not accepted by windows' driver update functionality.
From what I have read, is it logical to assume that the 6550 firmware has additional protection that has yet to be hacked? Or has it been hacked? If it has, I would be very grateful of any information leading to a successful hack.
