Im not sure if this will help but I have heard other say that they have to have their camera turned ON and PLUGGED in before starting to make it work.
Not sure if this will help you though but worth trying.
- So you have verified that the deck is set up to output via firewire in the correct format?
- Did your machine recognize the deck? What I mean is, did Windows tell you that it saw the deck and that it was installing drivers?
- Have you verified in the capture settings that Premiere is expecting DV, rather then HDV?

The fact that capture with PP 7 works under Win7, shows that:
1. The firewire connection is not at fault here.
2. The DSR-11 is recognized.
3. The Win7 1394 driver is correct.
Can you check that the little switch on the back of the DSR-11 is not inadvertently switched trom PAL to NTSC or the other way around.
If all this works with Win7 and PP 7, try whether Scenalyzer works for capture. If it works, it has to be a CS5 issue, although I have not encountered it. If Scenalyzer does not work, it had to be something unrelated to CS5. Does your Win7 device manager show the OHCI legacy driver for the 1394?
It wil take 5 seconds to check the capture settings. This is exactly what happens when the Capture Setting format does not match the output. It is also possible for the device control to control the deck even when the output settings are wrong. There is no point in doing anything else without verifying the settiings first.
I still want to know if Windows actually presented the dialog when the deck was connected.
Problem solved! The capture settings window was blank. I clicked on the "edit" button, found that the DV option was selected, so I reselected it, and this time the DV indicator appeared in the capture settings window. Capture now functions as it should. Ah, the things you learn. Thanks everyone, for all your suggestions.
Actually, I had the same problem that you attempted to solve for another forum member.
Your solution switching to the legacy IEEE driver solved my capture problem with Windows 7.
Not sure why you'd be skipping frames. Be sure you have the proper device
and format in the settings box in the capture window. Sorry I can't be of
more help. Perhaps someone else on the list might have a better idea.
Good luck to you.
I just got ran into the same problem as you. I also use PPro cs5 and Sony Vegas software and the same thing happened. Did you get you video capture problem solved? If so could you share the solution with me.
Open up Premiere's capture window and click on the settings tab. In the
window below "Capture Settings" you should see: Capture Format DV. If you
have nothing in the window, click on the Edit button below the window and
then click on the correct capture format. This is what worked for me.
You also want to make sure you have the correct device selected in the
Device Control area near the bottom of the capture settings area.
I hope this helps. Good luck!
