    Downloading video from Sony to Premiere using i-link

    ahaohio

      I have a Sony Handycam TRV-480 ("Digital 8" camera.

       

      I have a firewire card with 3 ports on my computer and I hook up my camera with one of these ports.

       

      I close the windows app that fires up and starts premiere elements 10. Open a "project".

       

      I select "Import Media" and the first camera type "DV video".

       

      I start the camera and set it to playback mode.

       

      In the window that opens I can occasionally (when I click "Import") see that the camera starts rolling the video but after a short while it all stops and I get a message that no video was sent to the PC.

       

      I have looked through the camera manual and found nothing  in the terms of settings that I could change. I am very confused.

       

      The firewire card is apparently working as is the cable.

       

       

      Help!
