    Capture Using Firewire 1394 Problem -Solved by changing Window 7 1394 driver to (Legacy)

      I fixed an issue that affects CS5.5.2 users that capture DV video through Firewire IEEE1394. When attempting to capture the default drivers allowed machine control of a DV deck and camera. However, the video passing though the cable was delivered in slow motion and stuttering. This is an issue with Windows 7 IEEE 1394 drivers.


      The solution is: Change to the 1394 Legacy driver


      Go to; control panel/device manager/IEEE 1394 Bus host controllers

      Right click; 1394 OHCI Comliant Host Controller

      Right click; Properties

      Selec;t the driver tab

      Select; Update Driver

      Select; Browse my computer for the driver software

      DO NOT select Browse C:\Windows\System32\drivers

      Select; Let me pick from a list of device driver on my computer

      Select; 1394 OHCI Compliant Host Controller (Legacy)

      Driver will install

      Reboot system


      This driver works, the default driver did not.

      This is not a problem with the Adobe software.

      It is a Windows 7 issue.
