Pinnacle DV500 Plus and Windows XP issues
on Apr 18, 2006 at 3:50:26 pm

I have happily puttered around with my Pinnacle DV500 Plus with Windows Me and Premier 6.0 for years. I finally decided to move to XP when another issue forced a hard drive reformat.

Much to my chagrin, I discoverd, after carefully loading and installing XP and Service Pack 2, that Pinnacle Pinnacle Systems DV500 will not support Windows XP SP2"

...................................... (DELETED 25 HOURS OF EXTREME FRUSTRATION AND RAGE)

Nevertheless, I downloaded the drivers and patch from Pinnacle, but (not surprisingly) the Pinnacle Systems download will not install.


Is there a work around, or am I to simply reformat my hard drive once again and revert to using Windows 2000 or my old standby, Windows Me as an OS?

I'm a little reluctant to redo it and try and see if Windows XP WITHOUT Service Pack 2 will work. I'd rather stick to what I know, even with it being old technology. It still works.

Much thanks to anyone with insight on this issue.
