I have gone through your link but still cannot locate the problem...as I
said in my original post, I have used the deck with different pcs and it
worked immediately, I used the mini dvd camera on the new quadcore pc with
same firewire cable and cs4 detected it immediately, I changed the firewire
card on the quadcore with same results - it seems that the computer / CS4 is
not recognizing the VTR...strange but do not know how I am going to work as
I bought this beast of a pc on purpose to expediate my editing time but now
I am left with a useless pc!
I have latest vista 64 update, latest drivers etc thus I am baffled cause
even my p2 still recognizes the DV VTR.
If you have an idea on what could be the problem please advise.
Do you have any software on the PC that will work with the VTR?
No - I tried windows moviemaker but it did not work either - it seems that
the only solution I have is to remove vista and install windows xp as vista
does not recognize the vtr and Panasonic do not seem to have an update of
the firmware/driver ......really incredible.
