    PS21Ult. Importing Hi 8 Digital Video from a Sony camcorder DVR-TRV355E

    Hi,

    Way back using PS16, I was able to successfully import Hi 8 Digital video from my Sony camcorder DVR-TRV355E. Alas that PC is no more (although I might have access to PS16). I have an IEEE1394 host controller on my (current) PC with the camcorder connected to it. In the Device Manager, under Imaging Devices, the camcorder is present as Sony DV Camcorder. However, the camcorder does not show as a Device or Drive in "My Computer"; neither does it show in "Disk Management". The Device Manager indicates that "The device is working properly". However, using the "Import" (or the "Quick Import" ) facilities in PS21 Ult,  the camcorder is not visible and hence importing is not possible. Any suggestions please?

     

    Thanks.

    Hello,

    Is Captureflux able to import some videos from this camcorder : http://paul.glagla.free.fr/captureflux_en.htm   ?

    Thanks Saby for directing me to CaptureFlux which works correctly.    EXCEPT that, despite hitting the "Capture" button and then "Play" (the tape runs and the video image is correctly seen in the preview window), the download is not saved. I've even changed the file storage location and unable to find the stored file. ("Show hidden files and folders" has been checked.) Any further thoughts?

    Sorry, I can't help more.

    It's been ages that I've not captured tapes.

    Thanks for the link..I am sure that I am doing something stupid.. I'll investigate tomorrow and see if I can find a solution.

    It's odd that I can at least link the camcorder to the PC using  CaptureFlux while at the same time, the camcorder does not show as a drive and, therefore, cannot be "seen" by PS21.

    Caveat: I've never used the import feature to capture (in fact the PC with a FireWire port doesn't have Pinnacle installed, it's my really old laptop). But I have used this so Windows knows about the card, see if it's helpful: https://www.startech.com/en-us/faq/firewire-cards-windows-legacy-driver-swap
