I know that there are many who have had this issue. I am just another one.
I have looked for days and days for the answer to no avail. I cannot figure out the problem.
I've read countless forums... no good.
I have a Sony HDR FX1. I'm capturig in PP2 with a PCI firewire card. I haver captured many tapes in the past. But one day... nothing. No matter what I try, I get the same result. "Cant actiate recorder. Try resetting camera". Ithought it may have something to do with the WinXP updates. So I traced the updates that had been made just prior to everything going to crap. I uninstalled them. Nothing. Still doesn't work.
If I had hair I would pull it out.
I have followed all instructions to the letter from http://www.adobe.com/support/techdocs/330682.html
But still I get nothing. Ihave uninstalled and reinstalled PP2... same results.
PLEASE. If anyone has any info that may help... I'm up for anything at this point.
I have downloaded codec sniper, the problem is that i don't know which codecs to delete.
I've gone here http://support.microsoft.com/kb/885222
but the install won't go all the way through.
This is bad.
I've posted on the video developers forums. No one is responding. I'm hoping that someone here will be able to shed some light.
There is nothing left for me to try. Anyone????
