I know this has come up before, but cannot find a discussion relating to the use of Roxio Easy Media Creator 8 with a Sony DCR TRV310E.

I am getting the above message whenver I try to capture direct form the camcorder using a fire wire connection. I cannot capture via Windows Movie Maker either. It reports 'unknown error'.

Previously I could use both to capture video.

Nothing has changed in my system as far as I am concerned.

The camera is automatically turned on ready to play when the sofware is started but the error message puts paid to anytihng ebing done.

Any advice please?
