I've not used my ZR-60 as a passthrough device, as I have an A-D "bridge," to do that.
However, I'll take a guess, or so. I *believe* that you'll need the camera in Record, rather than Play Mode (don't have the manual handy right now. If one does not work, try the other.), and then you'll start Capture in PrPro. You will NOT have device control, as you would with a tape in the Canon. Then, start your VCR deck and watch the monitor. This will be like using the software in my A-D bridge - you start the Capture, then the VHS tape deck. If they are not conveniently located near each other, just edit out the few moments of "dead time."
Thanks for the potential help but unfortunately it has not worked. Everything has been working fine except for Premiere Pro recognizing the camera.
Thank you again for the thougth and suggjestions.
As a test can you capture from the VHS tape to the camcorder's DV tape, and then can you capture from the DV tape in PPro? If not in PPro then can you capture with any software, like Windows Movie Maker?
