Like the question posted in Aug. I am also getting this error. I am on my 2nd camera thinking it was the camera's fault. Have a Dell XPS 410 running XP and have the Media software installed. I did install the video software, get the 'ping' when the camera is plugged into the USB port or removed from it and that's as far as it goes. I need to figure this out as I have a video to do for a client.

Re: Video capture error
Verify that your USB port is not "timing out". XP comes with the default set to a certain limit that the port is active. If there is no data transfer within that limt default, the port goes to "disable" or idle. Go to "Device" in the system menu, and select the port in question. Select "properties" and edit from there. If memory serves, that should do it....accordianman

At times the "failed to build a preview graph" error measage appears when the editor has a problem with the capture file format. By STUIO 8 I presume you mean PINNACLE STUDIO 8? Try changing your capture settings, like MPEG to AVI or vice versa.
Otherwise download the latest patch for Studio 8 from www.pinnaclesys.com . It's free if you have registered your copy of the software.
Let's hear from you again. All the best.

Take the battery out and turn selection switch to camera and then turn it off. Put the battery back in and its working again.
if that doesn't work try
Try smacking the side of the camera relatively hard with the palm of
your hand. Eject the tape and reinsert. You may need to do this a
couple of times.
You may have solved this problem already but I had the same problem some time ago, so the advice will be a little vague.
From memory the issue is something to do with corruption of a directx file so you could just try re-loading directx.
But the way I found a solution was to try and capture video using windows movie maker and you will find the video capture also fails using this software. However, windows returns an error message (which I cannot remember), and I did a search on Google or something for this error message and eventually found the solution.
It was related to directx and there was a small file that had to be run to repair it.
Hope this helps and I will continue searching for the problem I am now having with my camera not accepting a tape and returning the error message relating moisture......
