When I capture video from a Sony digital 8 Handycam, it drops part of it. If I capture 30 minutes of video, when I stop capture it only shows the last 8 or so minutes and the first 22 minutes are dropped and can't be found. I can make it work if i capture in 8 minute blocks, but that's a lot of trouble. Opearting system is Windows XP. Any suggestions?
From Edit>preferences> Capture, uncheck "Abort capture on dropped frames" if this option is checked. It is really strange that first 22 minutes are being dropped ahile the last 8 minutes can be found. I would suggest that in your PRE prganizer, click <show all> and check if all the files are being displayed. Alse drag the files to timeline and check the duration of the entire clip.
