Moving this post to Premie Pro Forums Discussion
It was always tricky to get the storm up and running smoothly. There were alway's driver and hardware conflicts to work out. Once you get it up and running, You leave it alone.
I used to be up on it, but its been to long. Try googling old forums circa 2003-5.
I can tell you that the new systems are much more flexible running a vannila system. You don't need the RT hardware anymore.
I don't mean any offense, and I made a LOT of money teaching Premiere Pro 1.5 on Lynda.com so I think fondly of that software every month when the check comes in even though the check is a lot smaller than it used to be, but it is very odd that you could even buy a new computer with only 2MB of RAM, and upgrading to something more powerful might have been a better choice.
Nonetheless, have you installed the appropriate drivers?
Did you replace the whole PC or just the boot drive?
I may be totally wrong but I had a Storm card years ago and it worked with Premiere up to the old verions 6 or 6.5, Premiere 6.5 is when it became realtime and hence the Storm card was no longer necessary for anything other than faster mpeg encoding
I seem to remember that Canopus introduced Lets Edit which then became Edius at this time and they dropped bundling Abobe products so I am surprized that Premiere Pro 1.5 worked with the Storm
If the Storm cannot be got to work and you do not have a firewire port on the Mobo go to your local PC component supplier and obtain a firewire PCI card with Texas chipset and install it. the card should cost about $20-$30. The Storms worked a treat but the Mobo had to be right and it did not like certain chipsets on the boards, not only that the installation process was a total pain
The Storm worked with 1.5....pretty much. As I wrote before, it was very finicky to get it happy.
The storms RT capabilities with blurs, color correction, and fantastic chroma key were a good reason to keep it online.
