My age is showing, since I really can't remember how it was with Win2000. However, you know that all good things must come to an end eventually. Maybe it is time to retire both Win2000 and the DV500 card and just stick to Windows 7.
You know, there are times when I still miss my IBM 5100 with the APL interpreter...http://www-03.ibm.com/ibm/history/exhibits/pc/pc_2.html

Good point, and the GB motherboard has Firewire built in... but my old but still working Sony camcorder is analog... so I use the Dv500 to get video files on the hard drive
Oh well... I can always use my current computer to create a CD image of the 3.5" Dos boot disk and boot from that in the DVD drive, if Win2kPro does not have an Fdisk function

I happen to be in the lucky circumstance that whenever I need to convert old analog material to DV, I have a couple of friends with the GV ADVC-110 that I can borrow or use the JVC dual deck to make copies of VHS material to DV or even use my old Hi-8 camera to copy to DV for ingest. It has been a rule here NEVER to get rid of your old camera if you still have tapes with the old material. I even have my very first VHS-C recorder, used in combination with my first video camera in 1981, a JVC (can't remember the model or type), in working order to use those 25+ year old recordings.
Get yourself a copy of PartitionMagic and make a set of boot disks for that purpose.

I have to second that opinion.

But surely you have a DV model you can pass it through.
