when connecting the DCR-HC15E miniDV tape based camcorder to the computer? Firewire is preferred (and the same thing as i.LINK or IEEE1394a). If Firewire, have you tried WinDV? If USB, that is not supported...
I have a Sony handycam DCR-HC15E (digital tape version) and the Pinnacle Studio 8 software will not capture. It says that the camera is not initialised.
I used it successfully a couple of years ago with the same camera and now it doesn't work. I have tried all the trouble shooting suggestions - I'm at a complete loss.
The camera is recognised by the compter and works on the sony software that came with the camera.
I've tried the camera with the sony s/ware deleted - still the same message.
I would most appreciate anyone's help and experience.
