I have a Dell Vostro 1710 laptop (Windows XP home SP2) and a Sony Handycam DCR-TRC730. Which the computer will not pick up. I am connecting via Firewire, my computer came with a 4pin firewire port which a few pins are bent so it wouldn't pick up the camcorder, so I had to but a firewire card (Dynex DX-ECFW). the computer picks the card up but when I connect my camcorder to the card nothing.
When I open Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 or even Adobe Premiere 1.5 it shows "CAPTURE DEVICE OFFLINE"
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
