Unfortunately the DE means that you have the OEM version of that software that you got free with the computer. It is severely limited. Any support would have to come from Dell since probably no one here has any experience with it.

 

Have you tried to capture with the software that came with your camcorder?

Just the same it controls the device but fails to create a file.

 

Sound like there is something else wrong either with the camcorder or the connection. What about the Panasonic software? It was designed to work with that camcorder so it should work. If it doesn't then you have other issues.

Thanks Gary! (i will try on 64 bit when I can)

 

Col1: Steve has asked twice about the software that came with your camcorder... time to answer :glare:

 

Also, what is the model? It is possible it will no longer work with Win7???

 

 

I'm getting the same issue as col1.

The program controls the camcorder but is not able to capture video. A file is created but you cannot preview it.

 

I have the following setup:

 

Creator Premier

Version: 10.3

Build: 103B45A, DLH

(Came with the DELL XPS 8100 i7 860 @2.8Ghz 6GB RAM)

 

Panasonic PV-DV900(Mini-DV)

 

Thanks.

Nope, not even close… You have Creator 10.3 and are posting in a Creator 2010 forum! That is 2 full versions newer than yours! :o

 

Most likely it is a Win7 problem… You can try it with the program I recommened above and you can try setting your 1394 Controller to Legacy mode…

 

But otherwise I have tested 2 camcorders on Win7 and mine work fine. My old ($180) A/D converter (1394) will not work on Win7, but those are the breaks of progress… :rolleyes:

Shouldn't this whole topic be in the EMC 10 forum? The OP is not using C2010 either>

Thanks Jim. Roxio's product naming had me confused. So as you've said, Creator 10.3 is an older version. I've installed Creator 2010 and still have the same issue. Same goes with WinDV. I think my camcorder is too old to work with Windows 7. I've checked the driver updates but all of them are for 32-bit systems only. I guess, I'll just have to go the route of s-video capture..

Jim, I just tried the legacy driver and that did the trick! Thanks! Appreciate the detailed guide. The main reason for getting this XPS system was for home video capture/editing and was initially bummed by Windows 7 having issues with the firewire. So glad for this workaround. :D
