    PremEles, DV Cam as A/D Converter Without Cassette Present

    Petersea
      I'm using my DV camera as an A/D converter while importing VHS recorded material into a computer - composite (red, white, yellow) cables then straight into the computer via a Firewire cable.

      The trouble with PremiereElements 4 is that it refuses to run without a cassette in the camera - a cassette that in this case is entirely unnecessary.

      It's VHS =three core cable= DVCamera =Firewire= Vista computer.

      So I've had to 'downgrade' to Windows Movie Maker that is less petulant about a cassette being present in the DVCam's drive bay.

      Is there a workaround that anyone knows of - so that PremEles4 can do all the work? TIA.
