    I think we have exhausted almost all possible solutions now.

    One final thought.

    My USB Operating Instructions states that after making connections and turning the equipment on,the Appropriate Driver to recognise the Movie Camera is automatically installed by Windows plug'n play when connected first time.

    If this does'nt happen how do I get Windows to install?

    pratchett.

I can't initialize on FCP


If you are capturing HD, go into the menu > IN/OUT REC > i.LINK CONV and set it to off, and A/V->DV OUT to off. Go into FCP and go to the File Menu and select "easy setup". In the easy setup menu set the "Format" to "HDV" and set "Use" to HDV - 1080i60. Click "Setup". Now go to File > Log and Capture (command-8). You're now set to capture. Just queue your tape and hit "Capture Now" or set in and out points and capture "Clip".

If you want to capture SD footage, then on your Sony unit, go to the menu and set the i.LINK CONV to "on". In the easy setup menu you will want to set "Format" to "NTSC" and "Use" to DV-NTSC".

Hi there cannot connect i link to my pc no connection on my pc any advice would help


Usually what you would do is buy a IEEE-1394 interface card and install it in your PC in an available slot on the motherboard. You can buy these for less than $20 and with a little tech knowledge about PCs many people can install the card themselves. The IEEE-1394 is called i.Link by Sony. If you are running Windows XP, or Vista, the drivers are already installed. Reboot PC and the new card should be recognized. Use the 4-pin to 4-pin firewire cable to connect camcorder to PC. You will need software to capture your video which should have been supplied by Sony with your camera. For Windows 7, you need to install LIVE Photo Gallery. Your camcorder was setup to work with Windows XP so an alternative may be to just find a friend with an older PC with a firewire card already installed running Windows XP. I just did this very same thing on my PC and it worked. Got the firewire card from Amazon.com for $3.95 VIA brand from Taiwan. I used Windows Movie Maker to capture video. Sony also sells a stand-alone DVD recorder which connects to a camcorder and requires no computer to create DVDs of your video.

Error 5100 on PIXMA MP470


Normal 0 Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Problem in video capturing through firewire


Hi Sreeki,
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......

Unable to tansfer video to computer using DV cable..


Pinnacle software will recognize the camera installed through a firewire cable once the camera is turned on. Windows movies software doesn't recognize DV cameras. You may be able to get capture to work if you go to Microsoft.com and download the Windows Media 9.0 Development Kit. I believe DV input is a capture option.

There has to be a 3rd party program installed to get it to recognize it.

Good luck on that.
