Using the same Firewire cable that I used with my HV10 a couple of weeks ago I am now trying to connect the HDR-HC1 to my PC. I am using Adobe Premiere Elements which just reports "Capture Device Offline". The Sony manual (compared to the Canon one) is an inpenetrable mass of (optionals) and conflicting messages. For transferring HDV it refers to: [VCR HDV/DV} -> [HDV] (which is what I assume it was set to when I got it) but cannot find this item in the menus to check. I found [iLink Conv] -> [Off] With the HV10 I just selected the right mode and plugged in the Firewire, but I can't seem to find any way of selecting (whatever one I need) mode anywhere to get the cam to connect to the PC via the Firewire link. Help, Mark, please.
