    Default Video Capture menu/screen does not open in various software

    Hi all,

    I've a MiniDV Sony camcorder, and using Vista 32-bit.

    I wanted to capture video to my computer, I installed the Pixela Image Mixer software that came with the camera itself. When I click the "Capture" to open the capture section [not the button that starts capturing, just opening the capture section] the software freezes and does not respond.

    Then I try Roxio Creater that came with my PC, when I click the "video capture" button to go to that section, a small splash screen appears for half-a-second [or less] saying loading or something, but nothing opens.

    Finally, when I try with Sony Vegas: I open the Capture Video menu, and it gives this error: The device 'Hauppauge WinTV 885 Video Capture' could not be opened. Please make sure that it is turned on and is not being used by another application or user.

    Can anyone help me with this?

    Give a Screen Grab of what you are seeing showing the SONY Capture workspace area too. Meaning, not just the warning.

    I presume you are using firewire direct to PC - you dont need to go through a capture card.
