Whatever the display says... are you able to use Windows Explorer to navigate to your video files on the camera?
Wait... I Googled... is Sony GV-HD700 High Definition Video Walkman http://www.amazon.com/Sony-GV-HD700-Definition-Video-Walkman/dp/B000V3NU3A what you have?
That is a TAPE based device, and you may not use USB with any version of Premiere
Yes - this is what I have and No - I can only see the device under the Control panel -> Devices and Printers. It doesn't show up anywhere else.
So - I will need Firewire to ba able to connect the GV-HD700/1 to the laptop? And thru the FireWire I will be able to use Premiere?
the GV-HD700/1 also has a slot for a Memory Stick Pro Duo to use. Is that a possiblity?
