Ooops I posted the following in another group by mistake so here it is again. Hi, I have had a panasonic NV-DS38 for sometime. However yesterday, for the 1st time I tried to copy back some DV footage. I currently have a copy of MGI Videowave 4 and also a package called scenalyzer. However using both of these resulted in some very dodgy footage on the camera. It kept pixellating (not a great deal, but enough to ruin the footage) also the audio indicator in the viewfinder kept flickering between 12bit and 16bit!!!!!!! I have tried copying back clips that had only just been copied from the camera and even they didn't work??? Anyone have any ideas!!!!!! More info: I have an AMD 1.4MHz, 60Gb hard disk and 512Mb of memory so the computer should be fine. I had a quick look around and one possible problem might be due to shared IRQ. However I am using Win2k and the there is no way of changing the IRQ setting. At the moment just about every man and his dog is using IRQ 9. Help!!
