Hi could someone PLEASE HELP ME! im am really freaking out now. I have purchased a Sony DCR-HC42E I have been trying for 4 days solid to get it to capture via the firewire cable into adobe premeire or anything else. I have read the forums but cant find any help on getting the pc and laptop to identify that the camera is there! It works via the usb streaming software which comes with the camera but the quality isnt very good. I have installed all the software that came with the camera but nothing happens EVEN when i switch modes to try and active it. I would REALLY apppreciate some help here as im trying to get a wedding video edited. Cheers Alex.
