JVC SR-DVM600 not recognized by Adobe Premiere Elements 4.0...
I've connected it via a firewire cable... it shows up on Windows XP as an AVC Compliant DV Tape Recorder/Player, but when I go to capture in Premiere, it either says the device is stopped or offline, even though the device is playing. Ideally, I want to be able to control the capture process from the computer, converting directly to digital from mini DV tapes via the JVC deck... any help would be great.... if it were my choice, we'd be using FCP on a Mac, but that's not an option...

If you have windows xp or higher you don't need drivers just an intel based pc, atleast 1 or 2 gigs of memory and try it with the software that came with it...if you dont like that make SURE your version of adobe works with the HDV format....make sure your settings IN the software program are correct...and viola!...MAKE SURE YOU ARE USING A FIREWIRE 4 TO 4 OR 4 TO 6 PIN CABLE no exceptions
When Adobe began shipping Photoshop® Elements 5.0 and Adobe Premiere® Elements 3.0 software in September, final versions of Microsoft® Windows® Vista were not available to complete the testing required to ensure compatibility.
Shortly after Windows Vista becomes available to consumers, Adobe plans to release updates for Photoshop Elements 5.0 and Adobe Premiere Elements 3.0 to provide compatibility with Windows Vista.
Updates for existing Photoshop Elements 5.0 and Adobe Premiere Elements 3.0 owners will be available as a free download from adobe.com, and updated Vista-compatible versions of Photoshop Elements 5.0 and Premiere Elements 3.0 will become available in the same timeframe.
This is supposedly the formula to fix the problem of getting Final Cut to communicate with the DVM600:
My friend had to do this on his machine, but now that I'm borrowing his DVM600, I can't get it to work on either of my Macs.
It's for a different model, but it works the same.
In a nutshell, when the "AV/C Tuner" driver request comes up, just cancel the install. Then, it will want an "AV/C Tape Recorder/Player" driver. It "should" install automatically and be instantly recognized. If not, follow the instructions in the guide.
There are also instructions in there for disabling the "Av/C Tuner" every time the deck gets connected. Hope this helps - worked for me! - cliffpro.com
