Had my first go at capturing DV last night and it worked!!
This is probably down to reading lots of threads on this site which helped out a lot when specing and buying my new PC last week.
Anyway, I read on this forum that 5 mins of video footage should take up approx 1Gb of HD space, but when using XP's Movie Maker it showed that it was capturing at 14Mb per minute. I am using a Firewire connection straight into the motherboard.
When I played the captured video back it was OK but not as good as the original.
My question: Why is it capturing at a slower/different rate?
