It should be able to capture from that cam even though it may not be able to access the cams controls through the gui interface. That is, you may have to hit the controls on the cam manually rather than through Premiere's capture window. Once you have the cam playing back, just hit the record button in Premiere. If it doesn't work, then CS4 has another problem....
thanks for the reply but i cant hit the record button its all greyed out...it also says "capture device offline" is there a way around this or am i out of luck?
Sorry, I don't know. Hopefully someone else does.
Well I just rounded up my old TRV9, power supply and cable. You are correct in that it does not work but if you go to Edit/Preferences/Device Control and select Options and Sony and TRV18 (in your case) you might not have the controls greyed out any more. In my case that window says Device Online, but it does not change the Capture window where it still says Device Offline and will not let you capture. If you still have an earlier version or other software you can capture to disk and import it and edit it.
Sorry but you will have to contact Adobe and see what they can do for you (and possibly me) but I have not used the SD miniDV camera since CS4 came out.
Apparently this is another bug that they did not find.
ya they really screwed up here but no i tried doing that and it did not work unfortuneatly but thanks for trying
could it be that i am using usb not firewire?
>could it be that i am using usb not firewire?
Where in the Premiere Pro Help does it say you can use USB? Do as the Help suggests and you will get much better results. ;)
