View Full Version : Video Cam Crashes Laptop - Help?

06-06-2009, 11:15 AM
My Canon miniDV video cam crashes (blue screen) my laptop when I try to import video. I tried 3 different programs with the same results. The crash happens about a couple of seconds after starting the process. I connect the cam and laptop using a 4 pin to 4 pin Firewire cable (IEEE1394).

When using my desk unit I have no problems (4 pin to 6 pin Firewire). I would like to be able to use my laptop to capture the video during an upcoming vacation.

Any suggestions?
