Hi, hope someone can help. I have an HV10 and I have been connecting via Firewire to my computer and using HDVSplit to transfer videos without any problems. Well, once I got everything up and running. However, I'm on tape number 8 now, and my computer (XP) doesn't seem to be recognizing my HV10 anymore. I transferred tape number 7 about a month and a half ago, and a week or two ago I tried tape 8. I haven't been able to get it to work.
Here's what I've tried so far. Update the Firewire driver. Didn't find an update. Uninstall and reinstall the driver. Do a system restore, for whatever reason my computer is only letting my go back to Nov 6. So either the system restore isn't helping or I can't go back far enough.
I don't have another computer to try, but the HV10 still connects fine with my DVD recorder.
When I check through the Device Manager, it seems to think "This device is working properly."
So I don't know what's going on. Any suggestions? I don't have anything else that connects via Firewire. Unless I can connect my computer and dvd recorder, but that'd be a big hassle. I'll probably try taking my HV10 over to a friends to see if it connects over there.
