I have a problem importing video from a Sony DV camera using an firewire cable.
When I plug my Sony DV (TRV11e) camera in using the ieee 1934 (firewire)
cable on playback to import DV, Vista pulls up the autoplay window and
import video option is available. However once the option is selected MM
hangs and the usual "what do you want to do" options don't appear. The
CaptureWizard.exe CPU process goes to 50% after about a minute in the task
manager, the MM program if opened won't close, nor can it be ended in task
manager either. The only way to shut down Movie Maker is to shut down the DV
camera and pull the firewire cable. Vista then gives the Windows Import Video
message that "The video device is currently in use. Close any other program
that is using the device and try again" (there are no other programs using
the device that I am aware of)
The same happens when the autoplay widow is closed and the Import from
digital video camera option is selected from within Movie Maker.
I used Movie Maker with this computer/camera/firewire cable a couple of
weeks ago and it worked great so this is a recent problem.
Any help or advice would be appreciated.
