wow colin! it worked!!!
this question is DEFINITELY now answered!!!
Why cant it be in the FAQ's for Adobe Premiere CS5.
I have seen columns upon columns of forums with people suffering this problem (with win7 x64)...
I am completely in gratitude for your answer.
I agree that the "Legacy" FW driver solution should be a stickie, or FAQ. Since Win7-64 was released, it has caused no end to the grief. Maybe Jeff, or Todd will have a better solution to getting the word out.
It was Harm Millaard, who brought that to MY attention, and he's posted it to many, many threads. In nearly every case, it's solved the issue.
Good luck, and thanks for reporting Colin's success,
PS - per your suggestion, I just published this "fix" in the Tips & Tricks sub-forum for PrElements.
I'll see what I can do to make this issue and solution more widely known when we're all back from our holiday break.
This is the link to my original post: Adobe Forums: Can not capture under Win7
Maybe, since it is a hardware problem, it can be added to the drop down list on the Overview tab in the Hardware forum.
Good point Harm.
thanks for posting this solution. works perfectly. life saver!
Good move Chad, and thank you for that, plus the H/U.
Nice seeing you in the PrPro forum. If you ever get a moment, the PrE forum could use a bit of your wisdom too, like in the PrE 8 days.
