Premiere Elements 10 Does Not Recognize Camcorder

Apr 8, 2013 3:36 AM

Does anyone have a suggestion on how to get Adobe Elements 10 to recognize my Canon Elura 60 camcorder?  The program worked fine on my Sony Viao laptop, but the laptop died and has been replaced by a new desktop computer.  The program recognizes my Canon Legria HV40, but not the Elura 60.  The HV40 can not playback the tapes recorded on the Elura 60, so using it to transfer the data is not an option.  I did notice after upgrading the Elements 10 that the list of supported devices did not include the Elura 60.  Could this upgrade be the diference between the original program working with the Elura before but not now?  Any help gratefully received.  Thanks for your time.

    This is a miniDV camcorder. Are you connecting it to your computer with a FireWire (not USB) cable?


    What operating system are you using? If Windows 7, have you swapped in the legacy FireWire driver?

    There are also (free?) programs dedicated to only tape captures


    I have NOT used either, but many say to try these for SD capture or


    I have NOT used it, but many say to try this for HDV capture

    Have you set the FireWire to its legacy driver, as I suggested?


    Have you tried changing the settings for the camcorder in your Capture window's Device Manager?
