I have a Canon Vixia HV 30 which I was previously able to connect to my PC when I had Windows 7. Now that I have upgraded to 10, the Windows Movie Maker is gone, so I tried installing some of the apps which said they made DVDs, but none of then have the ability to capture from firewire. I did some searching and tried WinDV and DVCapture, but neither of them worked. The camera shows up in the device manager under the 'sound, video and game controllers' and it says that the driver is the latest and greatest.
Any suggestions? Thanks.

"Firewire" is a data transfer.....not real-time capturing.
You're welcome. Glad you got it going.
I use Adobe Premiere Elements 10 video editing software. I can capture video thru by DV camera using a firewire and editing clips quickly. My students have only about 40 minutes to record the school news, edit, use chroma key, & burn DVD to show to the entire school each day. My problem is that the new Adobe Premiere Elements doesn't have the screen capture thru firewire on the new versions. Is there anyone can tell me a comparable software to use that works like Adobe Premiere Elements 10. I'm also upgrade to a Windows 10 desktop.

Big breakthrough today! I've already copied 18 tapes with hdvsplit, no problems at all, and then started having a few tapes "just not work".
I have learned that with my Canon HV20, I also have both HDV tapes and "16 bit" DV tapes. What this means is that I recorded some of these tapes on an older camcorder. The tapes are the same.
So, when I'm recording on Win 10, I can use HDVSplit to grab the "HDV" videos, and I have to use WinDV to record the "DV" videos.
With WinDV, you have to run the software first, then turn on your camera. Also, to record, you hit record in the app, then hit play with your camera.
I'm on a brand new win10 preview build (20175), so this likely will work for you:
OS: win10 preview build (20175) (any should work)
