Hi I just bought and installed a new cheap firewire card in my PC, running XP pro SP2. The card installed fine. I plugged in my camcorder - a now aging Canon MV20i Windows recognised a new digital video device. I ran Windows movie maker to try it out. On clicking capture, the camcorder starts playing and the video is there, but it is corrupted. Some of the picture is okay but some of it is wrong and blocky. Both the preview and the captured avi exhibit the problem. The picture on the camera lcd screen is fine, so it's not the tape. Any ideas whether this is just a windows config problem, or a problem with either the new card or the cameras firewire output. Last time I used the camera the firewire worked fine, but that was a few months ago. In the meantime, I managed to knacker the firewire ports on my motherboard by connecting a front panel usb cable to the firewire header. I'm wondering whether this may have also damaged the camera. Any help greatly appreciated.
