Question about Pinnacle VIDEO CAPTURE| PCTV PRO (PCTVPRO)

Pinnacle 9.1 capture

So here's the thing: I have already done a wee bit of capturing on pinnacle. Gone back to do some more today and it refuses (claiming there is no camcorder attached) But there is! My Sony Handycam is on, turned to play, and is fire-wired in. Also, know thre's definetly not a prob with connection between computer and camcorder as have checked and captured in Media Movie Maker. Their help, isn't helpful. Could someone help, before I pull out every last hair on my head! Cheers, S.

Re: pinnacle 9.1 capture

Is your IEEE port(firewire port) a PCI interface card? if yes then youll have to dig inside your hardware(make sure that your system is turned off) try to reseat the card into the PCI slot then turn on your PC again and connect your handycam. then check if your computer already detected your handycam

Dazzle DVC 80 does not show up in "capture sources" in Pinnacle quick start Version 9 that came with hardware. Using on Windows 7 in XP Virtulal Machine. Used to work on old Windows XP system. Can it...

The issue seems to be more software conflict in Win 7. I installed Pcleusb.exe and it blue screened on just about everything. But all is not lost, I have managed to get the DVC 80 to work using VideoCap.exe. Very basic but at least it allows you to to record/capture in either AVI or WMV

Where are the captured videos kept, I am running out of space on my HD. I have edited and saved movies I want off to another disk, but the originals are still on my C drive somewhere

Search your computer for all files with an extension that you use for your video files, whether it be mpg, mov, avi, etc. When you installed Pinnacle studio, you determined where the files would be stored or let it go to pinnacles default setting. Go to my computer right click and do a search for files >25Mb and that should bring up at least some of your files. Then look at the location (folder) where they are stored and you will find all of the others in there as well. Burn, transfer and/or delete what you don't want any longer. You might also try to open pinnacle studios, start a new project and save it, to see where pinnacle stores it. The rest should be there. Good luck and I hope this helps.

in the Selected capture menu, toggle back and forth between Pinnacle file capture and dazzle to see if you can trick it into working for you. Also on vcr, toggle between tv and vcr to see that will help.
