Hey guys , been googling my problem for a while and find loads of similar problems on the web with solutions just nothing I fully understand so thought i'd ask you guys.

Basically my grandads having some problems capturing video off his Sony DCR-TRV900E thingy using Pinnacle studio 8 through a 1394 firewire card ....

Any tips on how to get it to work basically whenever i try to capture vid it can't find the camcorder just says turn camcorder off and on , re-insert lead and then reboot windows ......
he's running XP not sure about SP etc ....

Checked that the firewire card was installed , windows says its operating ok and has the latest drivers.... thing is in Pinnacle when you select the source it just says camcorder DV , in the help files it shows it as camcorder DV 1394 ....

hmmmmmmmm i'm thinking something may be afoot with how i installed the firewire card .....

Can anyone point me in the direction of where i might be going wrong ...

many thanks

Andy
