Media Import Capture Problem


hby

Question

Hi All,

 

I'm using a Dell XPS M1530 Laptop w/4GB memory and Vista Home Premium SP2 32 bit. Running Roxio Creator 2010 w/all current updates.

Media Import Capture stops after 31 secounds. Capturing via IEEE 1394 from Sony Video Walkman Digital 8 - Sony GV-D800 - 8mm. Device Driver says

RICOH OHCI Compliant IEEE 1394 Host Controler. I just upgraded to Creator 2010. This type of capture has worked in the past with an earlier verison of Creator on my

desktop w/XP. This is 1st attempt with laptop & Vista. I have no problems capturing from my Sony Mini DV Camera.

 

Thanks for any help you can provide....Harry

Hi, I ran across your post while searching for a solution to my 31 second problem. I have a Sony DCR-TRV730 digital 8 camcorder that I was using via a firewire connection to transfer to my computer an OLD Hi8 analog tape recorded in the 1990s with my old analog Hi8 Sony camcorder. My computer is a Dell Studio XPS 435T/9000, 8G Ram, i7 CPU 920@2.67,GT220/1024MB, Integrated Audio Dell S2209W Monitor with DVI cable, Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit, bios A14. First, using Roxio Easy CD and DVD Burning DE Home, Version: 10.3.106, Build: 101B06C, DEP the program would read 31 seconds of the tape, then the image would "freeze," as if the camcorder received a stop command. I could continue playing and saving the file on the hard drive, but only in 31 second increments, where each increment created a new file. I tried Corel's Studio Pro X3, brand new version, and received an error message, "capture failed, the filed cvreated is corrupted and unusable. It will be automatically deleted."

 

This TRV730-fireware transfer process worked with the Hi8 analog tapes on my old Dell 8200, Windows XP, with an old version of Pinnacle Studio (v9.4). The transfer process also works on my new Dell XPS with digital 8 tapes.

 

I finally tried the Windows live Moviemaker that is part of the Windows 7 package. It worked perfectly! The resulting .avi files can be read and edited with Corel's Studio Pro X3.

 

From the few comments I found, 31 seconds keeps coming up. Does anyone have an explanation for that? Second, various Sony hardware is a common theme. Third, analog tape failure vs digital tape sucess could be a factor.

 

Hope this helps.

I had the exact problem with Corel Video Studio Pro on Winows 7 but not on XP using a SONY GV-D200.

 

I wish I new what this problem was.
