    Cannot activate Sony DV device for firewire capture


      New install of trial version PP CS5

      New install of Windows 7 Pro

      System will be used for Firewire capture and export only

      No audio card installed, using motherboard display adapter


      Device control set for Sony standard and device displays as "online" but when I try to capture I get the message "Cannot activate recorder"


      Get the same results with Sony consumer DV camcorder and DSR200 DVCAM camcorder and HVR-Z1U set for downconverted DV output to firewire port.

      Power off/on of the device make no difference
