Can you capture DV from the A1?
Can you capture DV from the Sony (what model?) on another PC?
Yes and Yes.
I am wondering if it is the graphics card in this computer. It is an ATI Radeon HD 3650. I don't see any ATI HD's listed on the compatible list.
The compatibility list means nothing.
Really odd, i would expect difficulty with the A1 rather the vx2000.
In the capture window set device control to generic also make a new dv project. Close Premiere
Connect Sony with the FireWire to pc and switch it on (never connect or disconnect camera from PC when camera is switched on!!)
Start Premiere and open the new project. Go to the capture window and see if you can capture now.
Are you sure the FireWire of the camera is not busted? Just a thought.
Well, I figured out the problem...I made a mistake. I was trying to capture from the SD and the HD cameras IN THE SAME PROJECT. So the SD camera would not capture in the HD project. Created a SD project and the camera captured just fine. I didn't realize they could not in the same project.
I do have to monkey around with the HD camera to get it to actually capture (ie it plays but doesn't actually record--have to start and stop many times, sometimes using set in point gets it to record).
Thanks for your input, Ann.
