i have three problems capturing HDV pal from sony HDR-HC1E handicam to premiere pro1.5 using winxp asus p4c800e mb, 3.0 ghz processor, 1 gb ram, 256 mb vid card to maxtor 300gb external drive
1. captures without sound
2 often, especially on longer clips and toward the end, comes with occasional pixelly broken-image flaws in just part of the image, that drag across multiple frames and sometimes become a kind of pox over much of the image
3 capture is crashing the machine. on reboot, boot sticks at detect device 001 or somesuch. i turn off the external hdd at this point to re-reboot. error message; '...has recovered from a serious error. send/don't send to windows'
the pixel flaws are frequent and have been happening from the beginning of the project.
the no sound prob is new. it affects both manual and batch captures.
the crash thing is new as well, but has also been happening with audition editing guidetrack voiceover files of between 2000 and 12000kb, most around 5 or 6.
any advice would be much appreciated
