Whenever i try to import video from my DV camcorder, via my PC's firewire card i drop frames and the captured avi file is jerky. What is the best way to overcome this. Is it a hardware issue or a software issue. I am thinking about upgrading my CPU as i am running XP with a 500MHz processor, but if its a problem with the way i am importing can someone give me some advice. I have tried importing using Adobe Premiere 6, Ulead media studio, scenalyzer and they all drop frames.
