I`m using a Sony Dvcam 3ccd connected by Fire-wire to a pc with an Intel 2 Quad core, 4 Gig Ram, geforce 1Gig video card, 500 Gig HD and 2 Dell 22" monitors. I`m running Adobe Premiere pro cs4.
When I connect the cam the pc recognizes it, when i start transfer, the tape rewinds, and starts transfer. After a few seconds (+/-3) the preview image starts breaking up(pixelating?) and I get an error message telling me that the device has been disconnected. The same happens when I connect the cam to another pc using windows moviemaker. so it must be the cam in some way or another. But.. the same cam connected to an Apple works fine... what could be the problem??
