I am hoping that someone out there will be able to help a new kid on the block.
I am having difficulty downloading video back to DV tape with Ulead Video Studio 7.
I have carried out various tests, which lead me to a conclusion that the problem possibly lies with some sort of protocol difficulty/problem within either the SB firewire connection or Windows itself.
I have carried out the same operation on a different PC, (but using my own camcorder and firewire), with no problem –which suggests that the problem does not lie with either of those elements.
When I try to do the same on my system, the DV tape in my camcorder picks up perhaps a few frames of the output, then a blank space for several seconds, then a few more frames. Each time the program tells me that it is doing what it is supposed to, but obviously it isn’t.
This happens with whichever software I try (Ulead, Pinnacle, or WMM)- all with the same result – which suggests the problem is not in the software.
Am I missing something –like SB updates etc, or settings within Windows?
Any suggestions would be much appreciated
