for some reason my computer doesnt detect my camera so i cant capture anything. it use to work and now it just doesnt detect in movie maker, premiere, or pinnacle. ive tried firewire, usb, dv, and s-video plugs and none work, but they all work on my friends computer. anyone know why my computer would just stop detecting my camera?
I have a similar problem except I haven't tried my camera on other computers.
What system are you running on and have you made any changes to it recently between when you could and could not capture?
I had a system drive crash and had to reinstall XP (non-legit) on a new drive. Everything else seems to work but my firewire card. Windows finally has a verification system for downloading updates so now I can't get any drivers I might need.
I've tried searching all my drivers for something but it looks like I never had or used one for that card. I frequently reformat and am rebuilding my case so I thought I had everything backed up so I could be up and fully running within hours of a crash. I have tried installing SP2 but that only nixed my ability to play sounds. I uninstalled that and still have no capturing ability.
Premiere doesn't read a device and XP doesn't read any removable storage device (which is what it was read as before). My system shows the firewire card is running normally but I still get no reaction to when I plug the camera in and turn it on.
I know the camera reads the cable because it shows "DV IN" on the display, which was its normal behavior before I had any problems.
Maybe we can help each other find answers on this problem and get running again.
