Hi, I know this subject has been spoken about quite a bit because I've searched the forums and google looking for answers but I can't figure out how to transfer video footage from the dv tape to my PC. I'm using windows microsoft XP (service pack 2) on an NEC Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.8GHz with .99GB RAM. I'm trying to capture the video using the provided USB cable and Microsoft Movie Maker. All I ever get when i try to transfer the video is an error message saying a video capture device is not switched on or connected properly. on the lcd screen of the palmcorder it has "CAPTURE" written on it and recognises when i connect it to the PC, but movie maker does not. I am able to use the camera as a web cam device but not capture existing footage. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
