Question about Sony GV-D1000 Mini DV VCR
I have two of thse Sony Mini DV VCRs at my school. A few months ago, I owned an old Windows XP desktop that I equipped with a FireWire card, and when I would plug this device into it, the computer recognized it and I could capture video with Adobe Premiere Elements. Now I have built a new rig with Windows Vista and built-in firewire ports, but Vista doesn't even recognize that the device is plugged into the computer. It will with the USB function, but USB for this device isn't supported on Vista. I've fiddled with all the settings on the VCR and I can't seem to get it to work. Oh, and I've tried using both capture decks-- neither of them work with firewire. Is this a problem with the VCR, my hardware, or does Vista secretly not support it even though Sony says it does?
Check in the back of your deck and see for small switch that would Change Fire wire or Usb input
