I recently started using a Sony TRV-280 Digital 8 camcorder. It works very well. I initially tried transferring to my PC with the supplied USB cable. The picutre was fine but no sound. So I had a plug-and-play firewire card installed. Now my computer hangs / freezes when I connect the camera (via firewire cable) and turn the camera on.
I'm running Windows 2000 Pro on a PC with 256 k RAM - about 5 or 8 year old computer. 80 gig hard drive. Not sure the CPU but was told it's pretty slow. Using ViedoWave III editing software.
Any idea what's happening and how to fix it?
