I have captured alot of tapes on Premiere Pro CS5.5 without any hassle but suddenly it's been giving me problems. I don't know whether it's the software (CS5.5) or the Sony Z5 camcorder or the cable that's giving the problem?
It only captures a few seconds and then it stops and says something like: Connection with the recording device was lost.
The cable (firewire 4pin to 6pin) is plugged in properly and the camcorder is playing smoothly (and pauses when that message comes up) so might it be CS5.5 that's giving the problem?
Any help will be much appreciated!
I replaced my own Firewire cable recently. That solved some issues I was having.
For a couple bucks, it's a worthy investment. Even if it doesn't fix this issue, it can't hurt to have a spare around.
