I've been trying for hours to get my Windows 7 PC to recognise my HVX. I've read everything I could find about the problem online with no luck. Whatever I do, I've been getting the messages "1394 device disconnect" or "USB device disconnect" depending which method I try. I always make sure PC mode is set to the correct device and get the same result for each. Things to note -
The firewire DOES work when trying to capture in tape mode.
When I first tried the FW, i got a "Driver successfully installed" message, and "Removable Drive" appeared in explorer, but clicking on it just made it freeze for a few minutes then give a message saying "please insert a drive into drive H" or something similar. USB does nothing.
So it seems like something is happening, but I'm getting nowhere. If anyone can help me with this I will be forever grateful! Thank you.
