I've read everything I can find on this forum re the problem I have but can't seem to find anything to help.
Having recently bought a JVC GRD290 and reading this forum I decided to heed the plentiful advice and buy a firewire card. I bought a Belkin USB/Firewire jobbie and installed it. The installation went fine, the USB ports on it work fine and when I plug in the JVC to the firewire port via the supplied cable I get the nice chime from the PC and it tells me I have an 'AVC compliant DV camcorder' connected. Thats's where the success ends though. When I try to capture any video via Windows MovieMaker or via the Belkin suppled VideoStudio 5 it doesn't work. Both packages appear to control the camcorder and the camcorder starts playing but neither package captures anything. Videostudio gives me a 'failed to build preview graph' error followed swiftly by a 'setting the capture preview mode error - check capture driver working properly'.
I guess I''m either doing sometihng wrong or maybe the cable is faulty. Probably the former! Any help appreciated.
