I have been using Premier Element 2.0 on Windows XP successfully for many years.
I have a Canon DV camera utilizing a firewire setup. Just recently, when firing off a capture
the Adobe goes ahead and captures, but I cannot stop the capture without actually turning off the camera.
The mouse has no affect or use in the Adobe window until the camera is turned off. Once I repower the camera,
I can start a capture again, but the same thing eventually happens. I have tried a different firewire cable, but have not replaced the interface card.
Anyone work through this issue, yet?
What you describe reminds me of my wireless mouse when its batteries are close to exhaustion. Try putting fresh batteries in and see if that makes a difference.
I use AA batteries with a built in USB connector (you just lift the + terminal cap to reveal the connector). So I always have two plugged into a USB hub ready to be swapped when the installed ones run down.
