I am trying to capture HD footage on my pc for the first time
but I am facing some problems.

The camera is the Canon HV30 and the software is the Premiere Pro 2.0
(Tryout version). The connection is done via firewire.

There aren't any drivers available, but I think the camera is
supposed to be plug'n'play anyway.

On Premiere's Capture window it sais 'Capture Device Offline'.
However from the same window I can control the camera (Play, FF etc.)
but cannot use the Rec button nor I see any footage on the pc's screen
although I can see it on the camera's screen while playing.

I am not sure if it's a hardware or a software problem.

Any thoughts please??

many thanks
