I have been trying to I capture video from my DV tape but have been plagued by Nero stopping capture before the tape has finished. The Nero capture screen freezes, say 20 minutes into a 60 minute tape and I get a message of â€¦
"Failed to initialise the capture device. Please check device settings"
Perplexing because obviously it has â€˜initiated the capture deviceâ€™ or it wouldnâ€™t have got 20 minutes of capture. The DV camera is still playing and does so till the end of the tape. I have managed to capture one 60-minute DV tape that I burned to DVD and it plays perfectly but it was the 4th attempt to capture it and all subsequent attempts with other DV tapes have failed. If I close the message and try to play the partially captured tape the machine completely freezes. Actually the machine freezes soon after the message no matter what I try to do.
Does anyone know whatâ€™s going on here?
Nero 7 premium
JVC DV-3 DV cam (using the firewire port to the computer)
Windows 2000 professional (fully up to date)
Iâ€™m not running anything in the background and have the screen saver off.
