my bus card is 1EEE 1394 firewire.
You mean you have a dedicated firewire card? Have you checked that the IEEE 1394 driver in device manager is set to the 'Legacy' version? Is your camera set up properly in the camera menu? Have you updated to 5.02?
For (from what I've read) better/easier capture...
SD capture http://windv.mourek.cz/ or http://www.scenalyzer.com/main.html
Do note that the demo version of ScenalyzerLive puts a watermark in the files it creates
- I'm told that the OLD version is freeware... check the download page for details
HD capture http://strony.aster.pl/paviko/hdvsplit.htm
hey so I guess it was that my firewire card wasn't set to legacy cause it's now working perfectly, just one more question, the only way I can capture is by settings the capture format to DV, and not HDV, it is normal that I can only capture with DV even if my camera is HDV?
Check you camera manual. It is a menu setting on your camera that enables HDV output over firewire and it should work fine.
