Recently upgraded my laptop to a nice Sager NP8130 as a mobile editing workstation, and when I went to begin capturing HDV footage the other day, I wasn't able to!
My PC detects the camera (Canon HV20) fine, it shows up in device manager as functioning. In Adobe Premiere CS5, and HDVSplit I can use the playback controls to shuttle the tape around, and I even get timecode feedback correctly on the PC.
But no matter what, I can't get any dang video to capture!
Camera and cable are definitely working fine; I dug out my old laptop and captured the footage I needed with no problem.
If anyone has any ideas, or any experience with this error, I would dearly appreciate any input,
