Divorce the capture and edit software steps. Today when I capture I capture. When I edit, I edit. I know everyone wants one software to do it all but on Windows this is my lesson. Capture and done. Edit and done. If I want it all to be seamless I use the Apple.
I own a camcorder that uses MiniDV tapes and I would like to move the video on those tapes to my Windows 7 Ultimate PC.
The camcorder uses a 4 pin connector and my PC has a 6pin so I bought a 4 pin to 6 pin firewire cable (belkin) and when I plug the camcorder into my pc using it, it shows as an imaging device in device manager and even shows the camcorders model number.
The problem im having is I can't seem to access the camcorder via software. Im using Roxio Creator 2010 Pro. Is there anyone that has tried to do what I am trying? and if so were you able to and what software did you use. This may be something I'm doing wrong, I tried emailing Roxio for help three times and no one has responded to me.
Any help would be great,
Thanks and Happy Holidays
