This is my first post on this forum - so here goes.
I have an AMD3000 machine, 512mb DDR and FX5200 graphics. I also have a Sharp VL-PD3H camera. I purchased a firewire card and Pinnacle 8 software to be able to capture video from my camera, but I am having problems. Whenever I connect it all up, run Pinnacle, go to the capture screen and press play, all I get is the sound - no picture. Therefore I can't capture anything.
On a couple of occasions I did get the picture but the PC froze when the shot changed on the video camera.
