Analog Video capture not working through Dell Movie Studio
I'm trying to transfer analog home movies from my Sharp slimcam camcorder to my Dell PC. I've got the audio/video cables from the slimcam inserted into the Dell Movie Studio Plus IEEE-1994 ports and I'm receiving the audio, but not the video. I'm using the Roxio Videowave Movie Creator for the capture.

Be sure that your MovieBox capture device is selected under Studio's "Setup/Capture Source" selection (assuming you're capturing analog). If the MovieBox doesn't show up in that selection window, there could be a problem with the device.
Additionally, check in the Diskometer left-hand panel (this is found at the center of the bottom of the screen) and see that the correct input port value (either composite or s-video) is selected.
If you're capturing digital, then you'll have to use a Firewire connection to the MovieBox device.
This is the latest hardware device that can used for Studio 14.
Check the list.
DVC-130 (There are no 64-bit drivers for this product.)
DVC-170 (There are no 64-bit drivers for this product.)
700-PCI (a.k.a. Pinnacle Studio Deluxe 2)
500-PCI (a.k.a. Pinnacle AV/DV)
Any 1394 cards.
Are you using vista 32 or 64 bit system? If Vista 64 bit there is no driver for your device and the only available is 32 bit only. Aside from that you can check also the video cable you were trying to used. If firewire under import/capture tab of Studio 14 you need to select the name of your camcorder or dv camcorder. Check that out and try.
Not having camcorder control is normal, as the ADVC110 doesn't translate DV (AV/C) control to anything else. It just accepts and replies to deck control commands so the capture application doesn't get stuck waiting for a response.
First off, make sure you only have the ADVC110, your VCR, and your computer connected. No other Firewire devices.
Be sure your have the output from your VCR connected to the ADVC's input. Connect your VCR's output to your TV. You should see in iMovie the same image you see on your TV, slightly delayed.
