Problem Capturing Hd From Camcorder

Question

I recently upgraded my Roxio software to Creator 2009. Program works OK when capturing from Canon VIXIA H30 camcorder for video recorded as DV using firewire connection. When trying to capture HD from camcorder using firewire, capture program opens correctly, starts the camcorder playing and then a popup screen comes on saying the capture program has encountered a problem and has to shut down. Procedure outlined in Roxio's Clean Installation has been done, hard drive was defraged, all startup programs were shut down, and disc cleanup has been done. My computer is xp with sp2, 512 mb ram, 120 gb hard drive with 11 gb free, 2.39 ghz processor and the video driver is updated to latest available from NVIDIA. Computer meets or exceeds all sytems requirements for Creator 2009. Any suggestions or help appreciated.

The requirements are a joke. If you don't far exceed the specs, which you don't, you could have trouble.

 

First, you don't have enough room on your hard drive. You need to free up a lot of room, then defrag it.

 

Second, you are far too low on RAM. You need 1GB, at the very least.

 

Third, unless you have a dual core processor, your processor is also low end, for video work, but it should work.

Just so you know, one hour of HDV is about 13GB. You will need 3 or 4 times that when you start editing for temp files, etc. When looking for a new computer, there are 4 components to check:

CPU - fast as you can afford

Hard Drive - large as possible

Video - no built on motherboard. Separate card

RAM - 1GB or more
