Re: video capture for Canon Optura 40 on Vista
The fact you have trouble with your ipod seems to indicate a problem with
either the cable or the firewire port on the pc, physically rather than
software. I'd try a good quality cable first to see if that helps, otheriwse
test your equipemnt on another pc adn see how they work together. Maybe a
pci firewire card replacement will help if the firewire port is dodgy.
