    Surprise I'm having problems.

    I have a Thomson VMD2S DV connected via firewire to my PC. O/S is Win XP (Home Edition).

    Firewire is 4 pin on camera 6 pin on PC so I have a four to six pin adaptor.

    If I try to capture video I get "no video capture drivers installed or no device connected" messages

    Editing sofware available;
    Ulead video studio 6,
    Ulead DVD Moviefactory SE
    Also Windows movie maker


    Anyone have any ideas, please avoid the obvious like buy a mac or a better camcorder.

    Why isn't life simple?
    Thanks

    OK I'll start woth a few basic :)

    Reboot your PC before you start to try and capture.
    Connect the camcorder to the PC.
    Switch camcorder on in VCR mode.
    Once all the above has been done start the Editing programme.

    If the above does not help then try:
    Start menu > (settings >) Control Panel
    open 'system' and then click the 'Hardware' tab
    Click the 'device manager' button
    find the 'IEEE 1394 controller' from the list
    If the device has a yellow '!' beside it then it is not installed correctly.
    Double click on the device and then at the bottom of the window 'Device usage' should say 'Use this device (enabled).

    Try the above and let us know how you get on.
    Mark.

    Thanks for that.

    I have now managed to solve the problem by using a 6 to 4 pin firewire without an adaptor.
