From your other thread, you appear to be working with Premiere Elements 12.
Are you doing DV and or HDV capture firewire into the Premiere Elements 12 Capture window.
If so, if you want the captures to go just to the computer hard drive location that you designate (See Save To: in Capture window) and not also to the Timeline, then remove the check mark next to "Capture to Timeline" in the Capture window.
Then the captures will be saved just to the location that you set in Save To: of the Capture Window.
You can also set the location for the captures in preferences: Edit Menu/Preferences/Scratch Disk under
Captured Video and Capture Audio.
Please let us know if the information above targeted your question. If not, please give more details on what you seek.
