    When using Windows Movie Maker I get the message device not recognized or
    pluged in. I verified the install, the device driver is installed and
    working properly yet the device si not recognized. I tried a 3rd party
    program for video editing with the same results. How can I capture video and
    edit the dvd? I updated to xp-SP2 before I purchased the camcorder and that
    program has continually gave me issues with email. By any chance is SP2 an
    issue? Thanks in advance.

  2. From what I remember, some Sony camcorders have "issues" with Windows. I
    assume you're connecting it via a 1394 Firewire port? If you're connecting
    via USB, then I hear it definitely will not work. For further details, you
    should post in the microsoft.public.windowsxp.moviemaker newsgroup as that's
    where I saw mention of the Sony problems...

    I have a sony DCr_HC40 and I can only capture through the sony software or
    Arcsoft Showbiz DVD2 (trial version). I would love to be able to use movie
    maker to capture, so please let me know if you have any success!!

    As far as I am aware, if you have MCE running then you will not be able to
    capture video as MCE 'hogs' the channels... one possible solution might be to
    ensure that all the MCE services are shut down (or do not startup
    automatically) and then try to capture video from another source. This is
    the reason that you can only use one input on your PVR card as well,
    preventing you from connecting a DVD player/VHS player to you MCE machine as

  5. I won't have success - I'm not the one with the Sony <g>. Seriously,
    however, visit microsoft.public.windowsxp.moviemaker and ask them...
