Need a 1394 firewire port and suitable software like Corel Videostudio. Then no problems.
When no 1394 port thoes pci cards come cheap, $15 or so. Video studio retails about $100 I think, you can download a free limited 30 day trial from Corel. Please uninstaal that demo after 30 days with the same install programm otherwise deep ****.
1394 drivers should be native to XP, you may be able to correct this by running an SFC scan
Take out the IEEE1394 card Insert your Windows CD (if you do not have it order a backup from dell) Exit out of 'install screen' click Start click Run type 'sfc /scannow' press enter you should see a progress bar, when finished restart the computer
this compared critical windows files on harddrive vs CD, and replaces missing and corrupt files
if you are using a desktop, you require a an addon card called IEEE 1394 firewire card, which you have to install it on your motherboard's PCI slot, then using the firewire cable which you get along with the card should be connected to the card and DV port of the camera, then using the MOVIE MAKER software of windows XP, you can download the video.
I have found you a Manual if that is of any help?
All I can think of is a faulty cable? Also sometime just changing the PCI slot will help?
