    It has been long time since this post, but after splitting the Hard Drive
    ( Two Partitions, Two Windows One always hidding )

    On the new Partition "Video-PC" NEVER had that problem.

    Which tells me that something on the other Windows was causing the
    problem.............

    I never had that Pop-Up Dialog on the "Video-PC"

    However go back to the other partition / pc and the sooner
    you insert some video on the ADVC, there goes the pop-up !

    Over and Over and Over again !

    Well, the good news is that it's not a hardware problem. But it's definitely some kind of software or driver problem on your non-editing Windows installation.

    Once Again

    I just want to let you know that again I went to my
    "Video Production Partition" and toke plenty clips ( Capture )
    with Premiere CS3 Pro, and not even for 1 single milisecond Windows
    got on the way / nor crashed the program.

    Again, everything went EXCELLENT !

    Well I did a test this morning, but let me explain.

    Before I installed my Abobe Programs, I split my Hard Drive in two
    thinking on dedicating a "PC" ( Hidding Partition ) just for the
    Video Production.

    Everything was on hold waiting to receive my ADVC-55, when I got it
    I set it up and tested as you have read above ( Previous Posts )
    and the problem on the "Main Partition / PC "

    This morning I decided to switch to the other "HIDDING PARTITION" OR
    PC, I got a minimun of things installed here, but I do have Premiere Pro
    CS3 and Encore, ready for action.

    I managed to CAPTURE different clips, and windows NEVER INTERRUPTED
    the capture nor CRASH the programs !

    So IN THIS WINDOWS, EVERYTHING IS OK !

    Something on the main PC ( Partition ) is causing that problem.

    No I am using the 6 pins cable.

    Can be the firewire card ?
    It seems like a power problem...
    Is your card "bus powered" or has an extra power connector?
    If it has, use the extra connector.
    You may have to switch some jumpers.

    I've no recommendations, but any contemporary card should be fine (and relatively cheap). Just make sure it's a genuine IEEE 1394 card, and not something like a combination soundcard or similar.

    I don't recommend Windows Server 2003 - not only is the ADVC range not tested nor recommended, but multimedia applications can often be problematic to run on this platform.

    No I dont. That's the problem, cant test & compare.

    I do have another computer on the shop ( Bench ) that I use
    with my Schematics / Service Manuals and related stuff.

    ( We repair Audio-Video & Computers, we have a small home business )

    I was thinking on getting another firewire card and do some tests.

    Also I wonder if I could do all this with the Windows Server 2003
    ( A different Operating System ) and see what happen.

    If I ever get a good clue / solution, I will start a new Thread about it.

    Whatever the case I want to say 1000000 of thanks for talking to me.

    Is there any Good Firewire that would you recoment ?

    Do you have access to another computer running FireWire?

    That's normal. Windows XP will allow FireWire ports to act as a network interface.

    This feature was removed in Windows Vista.

    I just noticed, and now I remember this from the beggining when
    I purchase the Firewire Card.

    If you look on "My Computer" on Hardware->Device Manager

    You will see under IEE 1394 Bus Host Controllers
    an " OHCI Compliant IEEE 1394 Host Controller"

    However, if you keep looking down, then you see
    under Network Adapters a " 1394 Net Adapter"

    Is this correct ? Does NOT sounds right to me.......

    I believe I did that patch before I become a member here, I read that
    some place.
    The cable is the one that came on the box with the ADVC55
    As far as I know, the video stream never stop nor the light on the ADVC
    normally something happend and then Windows responds or re-acts to whatever.

    In this case, seens like Windows just keep detecting the ADVC, not all the time
    but every now and then.

    The ADVC is permanently connected to the firewire card, and I do have the
    Disk Protection On all the time.

    I was thinking, removing the disk protection, remove the fire wire from the ADVC
    put back the Disk Protection ( Box not connected ) then connect the cable.

    Now everytime your turn on the pc, windows will detect the box and do whatever
    it needs to do.

    I wonder if that stops Windows.

    Its well known that sp2 has a firewire fault build in, it can cause many strange thing. Ofcause your problem could be a bad cable.
    Anyway try this patch from microsoft...doing the install it will tell if you
    need the patch or not.

    Faulty ports and/or cables can cause this to occur. Something as simple as a loose connection that constantly breaks the link.

    Do you have another port or cable you can try? Or perhaps even another computer to just quickly plug it into?
