I found WINDV (google.com) to work if it's going to work.
I have a Sony handycam and an HP Pavilion PC with Windows XP Entertainment version with SP2. I bought the Pinnacle Studio version 9 software to edit video. So I hooked up the camcorder to the PC with a firewire and turned on the camcorder but the computer did not display the "found new hardware" message. I checked the device manager and the camera came up nowhere. I'm guessing this is a problem with the PC because when I hook the camera up to my laptop, it says "found new hardware". For business reasons, I need to use the PC to edit the video, can't use the laptop. What can I do?
