Camcorder Not Recognized

Question

I am trying to import a short video recording on a miniDV tape (in a Canon camcorder) to Roxio Easy Media Creator 10. I have done this before a few times - but I don't have much experience with video files. It worked a month ago. I have made any significant changes, but it will not work now. The camcorder is not recognized and listed as a device to import from. I do not think it is the cable (DV to 1384). There are many options to fiddle with, but I haven't been able to make it work. I'd appreciate any advice about things I should check. Thanks. - Joel

Are you capturing via firewire connection?

Syrallas:

The OP stated he is using a firewire connection: DV to 1384

 

Joel:

Is the camcorder recognized by Windows when you power on the camcorder?

Can you capture using Windows Movie Maker?

 

It could still be your cable.

 

What program are you using to capture? What significant changes have you made to your system?

Good questions. I tried capturing with Movie Maker and it worked fine. I tried again with Roxio and today it works fine. No problem.

 

You fixed it!!!

 

But that begs a question. Why wouldn't it work yesterday???? The cable's position? My computer's mood? The stars' alignment?

I would suspect the cable - they are very "sensitive" :rolleyes: to position or the cable itself
