Default Storm on 6.5?

Alas at the weekend it appears that my NX card on my legacy system partially died.
I have caddies for this system with 4.6 on XP and 6.5 on Win7 64bit.

Analogue capture as well as DV produces mush, although playback seems to work. I use this PC for tape transfers so analogue capture is essential.

I have a couple of options, the easisest would be sourcing another NX but have not found one. The next would be upgrading the 6.5 drive to 7 and putting in a BM Intensity, (but that would not work on the 4.6 drive). I have just found an old Storm DV Card.

Does anyone know FIRST HAND if this will work with 6.5?

before you throw away the NX, remove it and see if you can spot any leaking capacitors, if not, clean the contacts with an eraser and put it back in

also, try different cables for capture, a bad earth in a S-Video cable can cause what you describe

The first thing I tried was a reseat but didnt really clean the contacts nor examine the board. Agreed, worth a try. I was testing with a composite feed.

No experience with your predicament, personally.

The manual for 6.5 (page 9) indicates only the NXs, SPs, Storm3Gs, Storm Mobile and HD Sparks were supported. DVStorm was absent from the list. I suspect the requirement for Windows 7 rendered them obsolete.

That is not to say you can't make it work somehow. Have you put the Storm in a vacant PCI slot to see what happens?

Thanks Jon
I'd read that too but I know that some here have got NX working in unsupported versions, hence the longshot with Storm DV.
I'm buried in work this week and currently have that system capturing OHCI of a 25 DV tape transfer job, whilst editing on the main PC.
Maybe the weekend before I play some more.
Thanks
David

Confessions of a PLONKER!
Early this morning I got up having decided I would spend an hour, knowing that I should at least get the Storm card working on the 4.6 drive.
Having completely removed the card, examining the caps due to the sandwiched boards was not going to happen. I recleaned the contacts and heard a rattle. The rattle was a board securing screw- the ones that secure the card to the case, trapped between the sandwiched boards. It must have been in there for 5 +years...and for no reason moved.
NX now working again.

and that is why I said not to give up on the NX, these cards are built to outlast us all
