I have now installed my Firewire card and in the device manager it look ok but when I try to set the capture input to DV I get an error saying it cannot see the DV device.
The process I use is:-
1 - power up PC
2 - connect firewire cable to camera and switch camera to play (unlike a USB device the firewire does not seem to do anything at this stage, USB would autodetect an new device)
3 - open pinnacle and select capture (set to DV) and the error shows up.
I think everything is connected ok but how can I check that the Firewire is correctly functioning. Should I try virtualdub?
I am using win98se should I upgrade to win 2000 to try to help?
