  • ADVC300 won't connect to Win XP SP2?

    Hi, I have an ADVC300 that won't connect correctly to my Win XP Sp2 computer. The system recognizes the Firewire connection and I get a few seconds of video in the Preview monitor of both Pinnacle Studio 9.4 and Premiere 6.5, then it goes away and I get only audio. I have the Firewire connection plugged into the 1394 port on the Pinnacle Studio PCI card, could that be the problem? Should I just get rid of the Pinnacle PCI card and replace it with a plain old 3 port PCI 1394 card? Do you think the 2 similar devices are cancelling each other out? Should I do a repair of the Win XP OS? I have tried everything I can think of. Uninstall the Pinnacle card drivers. Uninstall the OHCI 1394 drivers and let Windoze re-install them and hope for the best! Anybody got any suggestions?

    Does the video cut out at exactly the same time, no matter what application you capture with, or source tape you play?

      Doesn't matter what tape I play. After uninstalling drivers and restarting to get the ADVC300 to be recognized again, I can get a confirmation of video on a preview, but as soon as I go to capture in either Studio 9.4 or Premiere 6.5, the video goes away and I can only get audio.

        Which drivers did you reinstall? The Pinnacle card's drivers or the ADVC300 controller software?

        Do you know if the Pinnacle card operates as a genuine OHCI FireWire card? Or does it require special plug-ins for Premiere 6.5 in order to function.

        Another question - while the input picture is black, do the captured files play back fine in say, Windows Media Player (ie. with a picture)? Or is it still black?

          Just the generic drivers

          I re-installed the Imaging Device drivers. There are no drivers that came with my ADVC300. I only have the Picture controller software. I really don't need the Pinnacle card anymore as long as I can get the ADVC300 to work. Should I replace it with a straight Firewire port PCI card? Should I try a Windows Repair? I have a genuine OHCI firewire listing in Device manager and the Pinnacle card is the only 1394 device installed.

          The capture never happens. The system locks up and I have to do a manual shutdown of the non responding program.
