I could be wrong but I think that if you want to use an IEEE 1394 device (firewire card) than Premier 6 or later is essential.

Version 5 is patched to version 5.1c I think- you could try patching it and trying again.


I've never used Premiere 5 (I've got 6.2) but I believe 5 was the first version to be compatable with DV capture/editing so it should be ok, but might need some patches downloaded to work.
Also if you get conflict messages then I would think that perhaps another prog has control of the DV card. Try a clean reboot and only open Premiere, but connect and power on the cam before the reboot or immediately after but before starting Prem.
Another good idea is to stop ALL background progs such as antivirus etc. I use a good prog called EndItAll to do this and it is a free download (do a Google search for it). If you have problems finding it send me a PM with your e-mail address and I'll forward it on to you.
