FW 800 - 5 m : nothing.

    I am trying to connect a sony handycam to my computer.
    With a FireWire 400, 1 meter cable, all is fine,
    But with a FireWire 800, 5 meters cable, I get nothing.
    Does it come from the cable which is too long?
    Does anyone have ever tryed this cam?
    many thx.
