For the past few hours I've been trying to find out what is wrong with my camera. Only massage that I'm getting when I try to capture the video file from my camera (Sony DCR HC42) is "Cant activate recorder. Try resetting camera" , now I'm working with ADOBE Premiere 2, meanwhile I tryied using 2 other programs and same result. This means there is no problem with the software. I also tried to disconect the cables-no results. I'm new in video editing but first 2 home videos that I captured on computer (from SONY DCR HC42) and burned on DVDs worked fine, I really don't know what is going now?!!
