All the Mac lovers can gloat but I am having a problem getting my HDV footage off my HV10 camcorder into XP. In HDV mode, the camcorder is recognized by XP properly ("AV/C Tape Device") but when I go to get the footage, all the demo software I have tried (Pinnacle Studio 10.5, Adobe Premiere even Windows Movie Maker) fails to see the device. When I shoot normal DV footage and set the camera up to output as a DV camcorder, XP properly sees it as a "Canon DV Camcorder" and my DV footage can be captured, so I am pretty sure my Firewire setup (I did get a new cable just in case) is working properly. Am I simply not using the proper software (and if so, is there any free/trial software I can download to confirm all is well?) or is there some menu setting on the Canon I am missing?
