I am also getting the no capture device indication in XP. I have service Pack 2 and all regular updates. The camera fails to show as an imaging device in device manager despite the beeps of detection. Everything works great for my Canon GL1. It is almost like the device is being mis-detected as something else; but I cannot determin what!
In Vista, the camera is successfully detected but capture is MISERABLE. Audio is consistent but Video is (how do I describe this) surgy. It is fine then slows like a wave and then resumes in 20-30 second cycles. There is clearly frame drop. I am not doing anything else during the capture, file size is correct for the duration captured, and CPU on the machine never crossed 10-15%. Not sure about firewire IO, but again NO problems with the GL1.
I have a support inquiry into Canon but if anyone else has seen resolution steps (short of a hardware problem) please share!
