Need help badly I have a Sony DCR-TRV9E PAL which I used to run under windows 98SE using a Matrox card with a piggy back Rainbow Runner card down loading using "S" video. The dv has a 1394 socket so when I purchased my new pc I included a firewire card. The os is xp and I have three capture/editing software all up to date and cleared via fire wall exceptions. I have already purchased a second card and cable but still have this problem. Start up any of the capture programs and they all tell me there is no device installed and xp does not show it in the device manager. Spoke to a friend yesterday who programs on Macs and he smiled and said thats why he uses a mac and works on macs. He said I needed a widget to tie the dv, os and software together and told me the best place to try was a forum like this one so here I am Help me. Thanks in advance for any info.
