    Default adobe premire not detecting camera for capturing

    I'm using a video camera at university to capture footage onto my laptop. but premire says the device is offline, the other day i could capture from the camera just fine.

    the firewire cables are plugged in but its not showing up on the computer, i've tried updating drivers and rolling them back, thats done nothing, what could the problem be?

    the camera is a sony, but im not sure about the make, all i know its 3ccd and a 12x zoom.

    Is it just Premiere that's not detecting it? How about Windows Movie Maker? I was just wondering if its a complete PC detection issue or just limited to Premiere.

    yeah it seems to not be recognise din movie maker as well. funny because my computer recognised it the other day and the camera icon showed up in my computer. now it doesn't detect anything.

    You will need to identify the fault through a process of elimination. It could be due to the camera, cable or PC.

    You may need to borrow another cable, another camera (to see if your PC recognises that one OK), or another PC (to see if your camera can be detected by another). It's not usually rocket science.

    What drivers were you trying to update?
