I have a Windows 7 computer, in which I have just installed a Digitus DS-30203 firewire card, as I wish to capture video from my video tapes for my Sony DCR-TRV520E PAL digital8 video camera.
However, the multitude of programs I have tried all crash when I try to capture my video.
Windows Media Encoder seems to have the best of it - it rewinds the tape, fastforwards the tape, says it's encoding, and then freezes.
Other programs like Windows Live Photo Gallery, or Ulead Video Studio, don't even seem to able to detect the camera - they call it something like a generic microsoft camera - and they also freeze up when I try to start video capture.
Obviously this is not normal! But where should I start to look for a solution?
