SOURCE: 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......

Video capturing problem


I first got the Elgato Video Capture device for my Mac, I was hard-pressed to find any info on the initial problem I was having of trying to see what I was recording while playing my NES. All of the posts on forums were from years ago, and none of them helped me out at all.
Hopefully I can help out someone who has the same problem, and maybe make their life a little easier while trying to capture their NES footage.

I cant get my JVC GR-HD1US camcorder which records


Did you ever get this to work? I have the same camera (but on a Mac). On a Mac you have to set the capture to the correct setting (ie. the way it was recorded on camera). The frames per second and resolution have to match. When on DV setting the camera converts the video to DV standard and all consumer editing programs can import that with ease (almost no user setup). I'm sure you have the right switches and settings on the camera (being that you own this and most likely know how to use it). Those setting should be in your manual. If you can not set the capture setting in the editing programs then you will need a more powerful editing program.

0.008 seconds - no capture, no preview.


Going to the Pinnacle support part of their website in downloads and downloading the latest drivers for the relevant model number worked for me.

How can i download better quality video from mini dv to pc


Hi there,

You do need a good capture card if you want the best quality. However these tend to be a bit expensive and I have found that if you have a DVD recorder with an i-link input, then copying to the recorder will give you excellent results. After you have made the recording, you can then edit it very easily with say DVD shrink on your PC.

It may even be cheaper to buy a DVD recorder with i-link features than having to buy a capture card!

cheers

Recording stops within 10 minutes


Hi G-DyBiec

If the video capture automatically stops capturing at approximately 18 minutes (17 minutes and 55 seconds), then most likely the drive that is being capture to, is formated using Microsoft's FAT32 file system. Microsoft's FAT32 file system has a maxium file size of 4 GigaBytes (4 GB), which equates to a DV video clip of nearly 18 minutes. (18 minutes = 1080 seconds, @ a data rate of 3.6 MB/sec is approximately 4GB). So for hard drives that are formatted using FAT32, this behavior is normal. This is not a limitation of Studio..

To see what file system your hard drive uses do the following:

1. Right click on the Start button and choose Explore
2. Under My Computer, locate and highlight the drive you are capturing to
3. Right click and select Properites
4. On the General tab, towards the top, it will say "File System". It will be listed as either FAT32 or NTFS.

There are a few solutions if your drives are formatted using FAT32:
  1. Convert your FAT32 hard drive to NTFS *
  2. If you can copy any important data from this drive to other drives, it may be faster to re-format the FAT32 drive using the NTFS file system. **
  3. You can do multiple 18 minute captures and string them together in the Edit mode of Studio.
    • Since the first 18 minutes is already captured, rewind the camcorder or VCR to 5 - 10 seconds before the initial capture stopped (which can be edited out later in Studio).
    • Start a new capture to a new file name.
    • Repeat this process until all the desired video is captured from the tape.
    • After all the files have been captured, go to Edit and assemble the captured files from the Album to the timeline in the order you desire.
This is a manual method to workaround Microsoft's FAT32 file system and if this is too time intensive for your needs, then steps 1 and 2 above may be more suitable and should be considered.
* Note: If you need assistance with step 1 above, go to the Microsoft web site at http://www.microsoft.com/ and search on "convert FAT32 to NTFS".
** Note: If you need assistance with step 2 above, go to the Microsoft web site at http://www.microsoft.com/ and search on "how to format a drive in XP".

NOTE: Microsoft's NTFS file system is only supported on Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows Vista. NTFS support a file size of 4 TB (terra bytes), which is larger than any current consumer hard drive capacity, so if NTFS is used, the capture file size will only be limited by the size of the hard drive.

Problem capturing footage from Canon MV700 DV camcorder to Windows XP


I use Pinnacle Studio versions 9 and 10 without any problems. The software sees the camera MV700i and controlls the playback etc. Have also used Ulead Movie Factory without any problems, but its a little harder when it comes to editing the output.
