Wow - i'm about to pull my hair out trying to figure out why I can't capture from my Sony HVR-A1U HD camera, but I can capture from my Sony SD camera (DCR-TRV20). When I plug in the HD camera, I get the Found New Hardware Wizard asking for drivers for the AV/C Subunit. I've tried multiple things for the past 2 days trying to figure this out. Obviously my firewire works or I wouldn't be able to capture from my SD camera. My project settings are set to HDV when trying to capture the HD footage...and all it shows in the capture window is 'Capture Device Offline'. I've set the capture settings properly, select NTSC, Sony, Generic (my model isn't listed) and still no go.
Does anybody know what to do or where to get the AV/C Subunit drivers it's looking for? Or is this even the problem? Thanks for any help!
Make sure that the camera is correctly setup to output HDV over the iLink. Check your menu settings.
Thanks for the reply. I had already check that and it's set for HDV iLink. Any other suggestions??
A/V - DV OUT OFF
i.LINK CONV OFF
VCR HDV DV AUTO
These are settings for the Z1, maybe the same applies to the A1.
