    So I wont be sticking with Windows Movie maker but just thought Id give it a go since I have it installed on my system. It picks up the camera and when I choose capture it rewinds the tape and starts to play it - but nothing comes up in the preiview window and nothing gets captured?

    Thoughts?

    If you are running WinXP with SP2 then you need to get a hotfix to enable full speed firewire connection, in some cases 1EEE1394 devices on XP SP2 run at a reduced speed of 100MBs as opposed to 400MBs.

    Check on Windows update site (don't go through auto update, manually check)

    So I dont suppose you know which hotfix - I've gone to the website and downloaded the latest updates - no more left to install. Still problems.
