Oh for the information:
Running win 7 home
Intel Core i7 4771 @ 3.50GHz
2047MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660
My recommendation would be to just capture with WinDV. The footage you capture with WinDV is perfectly compatible with Premiere Elements.
Otherwise, you could waste a lot of time trying to chase whatever is bugging up this problem in Premiere Elements.
Thansk for the advice. But I'm not that fast with giving up.
So it works again now. I don't know why but changing two dip switches on the DataVideo converter made it working again. Very strange because the dip switches are sealed and always have been in that same position. And it worked spotless until now.
Well, i'm glad it works again.
So my lesson here is that when i'm trouble shooting something, do not only look in to the things where there is a possibility that something has changed but also in to the things that has always been exactly the same.
