Is to not rely on the video editors for the video capture step. Also, DRIVERS are not what do the capture so I learned to find capture software for that step.
Purchased HV30 some time ago from a used camcorder shop. Came with camera, carrying case, and firewire cable.
Anyways, I've taken a couple videos, and want to transfer them to my computer. Computer runs Windows 7 x64 in a custom setup, stable overclock at 4.5Ghz with 6G DRAM.
Software for editing is Vegas Movie Studio HD Platinum 10.0 (trial).
Computer recognizes HV30 when plugged in via firewire to front 1394 port. No other 1394 port is being used. USB connected is mouse and keyboard.
Looking into Control Panel, it recognizes the camera as "Canon VIXIA HV30", and after searching for drivers on the internt (via windows 7 autosearch), it shows as drivers being up to date.
Opening the editing software (or "my computer"), I cannot find the camera. This becomes an issue when telling the editing software where to look for media.
I'm new to this. Help?
