I hev tried this before using Windows Movie Maker, which works fine, but it gets the file in a microsoft format. Therefore I took the suggestion from this forum and gto Win DV. However WinDV keeps saying it can not find the DV output pin. Google-ing this gives a lits of other people with the same problem, bu no one seems to have an answer. Somehow I would have expected to find the answer here, but the forum has no mention of it. Can anybody help?

When I used WinDV, that was the only way I could get it to work. LOL! I tried loading WinDV first, and it does not work, unless I have my Sony set for playback.

No, I have tried quite a few thigs so far. Cam off-on, re-download WinDV, reinstall, reboot... Nothing. Surfing the net has brought about quite a few people with exactly the same problem, but nobody seems to have a solution. There is nothing wrong with the cam nor the cable as the whole procedure works like a charm under Windows Movie Maker. So it must be software related. Anybody have another idea?

I have used it with the same camera, Sony HDR-HC9E for a couple of years with no problem then suddenly this happens. I can still capture using Pinnacle studio but prefer the simplicity of WinDV. I also use a Sony VX2100E and this just gives 'error' when I http://forum.videohelp.com/threads/343927-Cannot-find-DV-output-pin try connecting it for capture. Device manager does not see the camera when I connect. Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.

Firewire was being used. http://www.videotoasternt.com/forums/read.cgi?49082 According to this thread, WinDV does not work with USB. http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/492387 What type of connection are you using on your computer, USB or 1394 / Firewire?

edit a whole gob (I think it was 29) Hi-8 tapes. I captured all of them usingthe customer'sSony Hi-8 VTR and every one had bad OOS and I could do nothing with the files except ditch them. It's been over two years now and the client still wants me to do the job as he'd really like to have DVDs of his videos. I have learned a little since that time but still have all the same gear I had then. (Pinnacle AV / DV card, same computer, and the same VTR) In S9, I have a choice of only two codecs to use for capturing AVI: DV Video Encoder PICVideo MJPEG Compressor As I still know very little about Liquid, I'd prefer to stick with Studio but don't even want to start this project unless I can figure out a way to make it through a whole tape and keep the audio in sync. My question then is, are there any newer codecs that would do a better job now-a-days than the 2+ year old codecs listed above? If so and I could get them, would S9 be able to make use of them? If the two listed above are all that I have available, what then can I do to make this known set of variables work? I'd have a nice chunk of "new toys" money if I could make this happen. Any takers? Thanks. LvR -> RE: An Old Problem is Back! (4/9/2007 1:37:46 AM) Afraid the codecs themselves are not to blame - its all a function of what is happening on the capture hw, "the post actual capture treatment of material" and the intelligence (or then lack of it) of Studio in the handling of those. Question: Can you use your capture hw (Av/DV card) under Windows Movie Maker to capture using the DV codec? Alternatively -are you able to use WinDVor Scenelyser to capture via your AV/DV card? (The intention being to capture using the DV type1 codec that stores the raw audio and video stream information together unlike what Studio and others are doing by splitting and handling them separately) ........................... the idea being to "post capture process" (cutting and creating intermediate files to be converted to DVD via a real simple Studio project) before Studio's stupidity is allowed toget involved in the integrity of th
