I have been using elements 3.0 for some time. I installed 9.0 and have been getting an unknown recorder error on DV capture. I decided to uninstall it, and went back to 3.0 and now have this problem on this program. Any Ideas? XP PRO SVC PK 3, Pentium D 2.8G, 1 GB Ram, 7200 RPM Sata Raid 0.
Firewire, sony mini DV camera.
Sounds like you may be out of contiguous hard drive space.
How much free, freshly defragmented space is on your C drive? You'll need at least 20-30 gigs -- and it should be free of tmp files and spyware. (The regimen I recommend in the FAQs and in my books will show you how to do that. http://forums.adobe.com/thread/390602?tstart=30 )
