    DV Camera not seen by Premiere CS5

    ProfRobGraham

      I just received my copy of Premiere CS5 and am eager to get started using it as an editing package. However, everytime I plug my camera in to attempt to capture the video signal Premiere crashes.

       

      I'm using a Panasonic PV-GS39 camera (a few years old) and am pushing the signal via Firewire to a brand new HP desktop running Windows 7, with an Nvida GEForce GT 220 card and 8 gigs of RAM.

       

      If the camera isn't plugged in I can easily open the capture window and see the features for that window. However, as soon as I plug the camera in, the window doesn't open (well, it creates a white window shape) and Premiere crashes.

       

      I've tried this on 2 different computers with the same results.

       

      So, is it the camera or Firewire or some other sort of hardware incompatibility I am totally unaware of.

       

      Thanks in advance for any insight!
