My camera is connected to my PC via firewire cable. When I open the capture window in Premiere, and I hit play on my camera, I don't see video in Premiere's capture window and the red record button is inactive so I can't capture. Yet when I connect or disconnect the firewire cable, I get the audio indication of each action from my computer. This is the first time I've seen this happen. Any ideas?
Also, I just noticed, and this would be expected, at the top of the capture window it reads, "capture device offline" and yet the controls that are active (RW, step back, play, step forward, FF, pause, stop) all work and control my camera
I figured it out. For some reason my capture format was set to HDV instead of DV.
