    Firewire capture - MC can't recognize my device

    I recently converted from Avid Liquid to MC 4.05 and have been following the tutorials. Thanks Douglas, Larry and others for sharing your knowledge. I have a Panasonic NV-GS400 mini DV cam which I have set up to capture as a generic device and I have no problems. I also have a JVC-SR VS30E mini DV deck but MC does not recognize the device. I am using a Adstech pyro 400 firewire card with TI drivers. The JVC device is recognized in the OS device manager. I have tried  manual configuration, started up the camera, computer and mc in sequence.I have also been through settings-deck configuration-firewire connection-add deck-generic basic dv device but the capture window always shows "no deck". Should I be looking for a firmware update on the JVC device? Is this a W7 issue? or have I missed the obvious? I have noticed that W7 doesn't have the familiar ding dong when a device is connected or disconnected to the firewire card. The onboard firewire card is not disabled. It is a VIA 1394 (I don't use it) and no conflicts are showing up in the device manager.

    Hi and welcome here.

    About a week from now, the W7 certified version of Media Composer will be released, I would recommend waiting for that version.

    Re: Firewire capture - MC can't recognize my device

    When you connect the Panasonic to your computer w/o MC on, Windows should automatically give you a option to capture video. Does this alsow happen when you connect the JVC? If not, then it's a Windows issue, IMHO.

    Re: Firewire capture - MC can't recognize my device

    I had trouble getting my Jvc sr-vs30u to work under XP-Pro. It finally worked under a generic setting but the audio was bad. I captured the same tape with my Canon GL-2 & everything works fine. I had also used the JVC for 5 years capturing projects in Liquid without any audio problems. I posted on the MC board about this & had several replies but couldnt find them with a search. Maybe you would have better luck with a search?

    Re: Firewire capture - MC can't recognize my device

    Try to install a differerent driver for your deck. When it is connected, and detected by Windows, then select "Update Driver" and manually select one from JVC. Try this one. I had similar problems with my JVC GY-HD101, and it only worked correctly with the JVC driver - but did not work with Microsoft's default driver.

    Re: Firewire capture - MC can't recognize my device

    Not needed... Windows should just detect the camera. If you wish - if you do a search for Windows 7 you may find some users who have had success with earlier versions of MC and W7. Look up the user sverkalo.

    But keep in mind, that using an unsupported OS will yield you no help from Avid and could result in unforeseen problems in the software.

    Kent,

    I really don't see why you are keep on refering to me.

    As you say it, it's just like I am the only one who has sucess with W7 and this is far from the truth.

    I don't have this specific camera and I can't have a solution, just suggestions.

    I can help anyone (at a point) that has a Z1, Z7, HV30 and DSLR's.

    And some SD models.

    I have only referred to you in this one because I know that you have success with W7 - I also did reference the member to perform a search for the Windows 7 thread that was created some time ago.
