Can you capture with Window Movie Maker using the Canopus?
Is the Canopus using the same Firewire as your camera, or is it using a second cable plugged into a different port? If the later, try the former.
Canopus ADVC-100 works with Movie Maker.
Canopus uses the same Firewire port as the camera normally would. Canopus is the only DV device connected.
Ah well. I took a shot.
wondering why you use the canopus any way. From the canon web site:
Analog Digital Image Converter: This function lets you feed the analog signal from your TV, VCR or analog camcorder to your HV20 to convert to digital for recording on DV tape. The HV20 can also be used as a signal converter by connecting it between an analog device and another digital device.
In other words, ditch the canopus.
My source provides only s-video which the HV20 cannot input and convert.
I also use the ADVC-100 and got the same problem. As you know is this the only converter that can get round the Macrovision safety on videotapes.
I re-installed Pro2 and I use this version only for capturing. With the installation of CS4 I got more undeclared problems that not might happen. I think this version is to heavy for the recommended configuration.
I have found a way around the problem with the ADVC-100.
Make sure that the ADVC-100 is powered off before pressing F5 to open the capture window. When the capture window opens it will say that there are no capture devices found. Now power on the ADVC-100 and the capture window will find the device and not crash.
This may help you.
