LOL, I can't figure this out. I've tried two different 1394 cards, the first was an Actiontec. Windows XP installed the driver, Device Manager shows the card as working properly, but I can't capture video! So I ran out to Staples (10 minutes before closing time) and picked up a Maxtor 1394. Same sh*t. Both Vegas Video 3, and Videowave 4 show no capture device. The camcorder is a Sony TRV140 digital8 my wife just bought. I used a four pin to six pin firewire cable. I even started disabling devices I wasn't using. Contacting Sony, and the tech said I need a four pin 1394 card, not the six pin.
