Does the computer recognize your camera?

My Vegas 7e recognizes my XH-A1.

I saw a problem like this once, and (and your not gonna like this) my camera had a blown firewire port (not my computer, my camera). check it on another computer - if you can, then it's something else, if it's not (then I'd be a little more concerned).

Sorry for such wonderful news.

when i have the xh-a1 in vcr doesn't see it...but then i flip it over to record mode..and then the computer sees it and displays what the camera is seeing on the computer.....

...any more ideas guys?

It sounds like you need to go into your custom fuctions(before you connect it to your computer) and select your output HDV OPTION,if your trying yo capture hdv..

I'm just glad I was wrong - I would have felt for you had I been right.

Yeah..i'm glad you were wrong too or I would have been sick tonight..'s the funny works fine when I use vegas' external capture program...but when I try to use the HDV capture within vegas it won't work....geez...this is making me ill ...i need to do some work.

dont know that cam but maybe you have a dv conversion turned on
xjerx wrote on 9/11/2007, 1:45 PM
no conversion..just straight HDV...i've looked through all the menus on the camera and in vegas...and can't seem to find anything...

wow....ok...finally got it working...seems as though if you unplug the firewire options pop up in the camera menu...strange......anyway...thanks for all your help
