We have the Sony DCR-TRV240 and have been successful in the past in capturing video to my computer. We use Pinnacle Studio 8 for the editing.
However, when we plug the firewire cable into the camera and computer and set the camera to VCR mode, the computer fails to recognize it.
We’re running Service Pack 2 and have explored all of the information that SP2 has with the firewire port.
Any suggestions would be most appreciated!

Among the things we’ve tried include:
- using different cameras
- using different cables
- using different tapes
- using different computers
- hotfixes from Microsoft
We’ve considered but haven’t tried yet:
- re-install Windows
