I have recently purchased a Panasonic Mini DV Camcorder and had a Firewire port fitted to my PC. I have tried to capture some movie footage today using the Pinnacle Studio 8 software. The movie footage is displayed in the movie box on the screen however when I press capture I get a message box stating: Sorry Cannot capture. The data rate on Drive C is less than the required rate of 444 K'byte/second. I used the help menu and ran a Data Rate Test. The result was; Read 2918 KB/Sec, Write 2873KB/Sec Drive C not capable of capturing DV Data.
MY PC is old P2 550 MHZ with 12648 MB free and 7270 MB used on the C drive. I am running XP Prof.
I thought my PC was capable of capturing DV footage and using the pinnacle software.
Any suggestions to help my situation would be much appreciated.
