I'm on the road filming using Maizie one you Sony camera and a laptop computer. When I try and capture footage from my camera to my laptop using Vegas I'm able to play, positive, fast-forward But when I hit the capture button everything grays out. I'm able to do everything except capture my footage. I purchased a new 1394 cable and it still does not work.
I'm baffled. Is anyone have any suggestions. This same system worked flawlessly several months ago so I don't know what happened. The only thing I did different was update Vegas. I'm using Vegas 10. Thanks for any help.

Is it an HD Camera? If it is remember that Vegas captures
HD and DV content differently. HD uses the built in capture
utility and DV goes to Sony Video Capture 6.
Make sure you are selecting the right one.

I am using HD. All my settings are I like they always were. I get no preview video in Vegas but I can control the playback fast-forward and so on on my camera to Vegas. But whenever I click the record button it grays out And nothing gets captured. I don't have Internet here so I can't reinstall Vegas. Do you think a clean Vegas install might do the trick.

Roger, are you trying to record/capture through 1394 on a newly used Win7 install?

Grazie

I tried using the Sony video capture. I get a message that my camera could not be opened. It says please make sure that it is turned on which it is and is not being used by other application.
The blue screen on the video capture window says that preview is turned off. I don't know if that is a clue are not as to the problem. Could it be that Skype or my built-in laptop camera is taking over in someway. There's a conflict somewhere and I just can't figure it out.
When I turn off my video camera my laptop camera then takes over and I can see a preview In the Sony video capture.

I've also tried using HDVSplit as a capture device.
It begins to capture and then in about 4 seconds it gives me this message.

I've also reinstalled Vegas and installed DirecX. Any clues here that might help?
THanks.
Roger

It actually turned out to be the FireWire port itself that was malfunctions.
