asandull Posted January 16, 2007 Report Share Posted January 16, 2007 I was so excited to transfer my video via firewire since its supposed to keep the quality... and for some reason the only way I can capture video with it is through a pinnacle program. I paid between $24 & $29... not sure exact amount and it was from Best Buy... It's conncect directly to my pc and to my Sony HC3 camcorder. When I open 'CAPTURE' IN EMC 9, the drop down list will recognize my camera but all the options are greyed out.. Then it freezes... (somtimes) The message it gives me before it freezes says something about being unable to preview the HDV device, ensure its a valid tape, and make sure its wound to a posistion with material... I know there is no problem with the tape or the posistion of the material. And yes, i have it play mode.... My camcorder works with EMC 7.5 and EMC 9 when I use the dazzle, I just cant capture from it using the firewire... While I was in the store looking for firewire cables, I could not find one that said 4 to 6 pin. They all said 4 to 4 or 6 to 4... Does it matter that I bought one with the numbers reversed??? I bought 6 to 4, not 4 to 6. I didnt think it mattered but now that this is not working, i'm curious... Anyway, just wanted to know if I need to go garbage picking for the orignal package or if there is something I can do... Also, I tried capturing through Moviemaker, that wont work either... I went into my computer's properties, checked the hardware and says that the firewire device is OHCI compliant... Thanks for any help!!! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
