    Hello everyone! I installed a StarTech 2 Port PCI Express 1394a FireWire Card in my computer a few months ago. The driver shows up in the Device Manager, but the programs I've tried (WinDV, Adobe Premiere Pro CS6, Sony Vegas Pro 13) and it doesn't show up in the capture windows! Is there something I could do to be able to capture from my camcorder?

    My DV Camcorder is a JVC GR-D870U model.

    My computer has Windows 10, Intel Core i3, 8 GB RAM, 1 TB HDD.

    Hi,
    i know it most probably will not help you. I was forced to buy firewire card, because panasonic software supported USB capture from my camera doesnt work with latest builds Win10.
    I made clean install of win10. It seems, there isnt firewire card installed. But everything turns to be o.k. when I connected camera and turn it on.
    So conclusion. I didn't installed any driver by myself. And it turns on when connecting camera. On homepage of your firewire card is also mentioned, you most probably shouldn't intall anything too.

    It is not clear to me, if you connects camera to PC and turn camera on. Probably you expected it shows firewire card in WinDV.
    Sorry for stupid answer not answer.

    Hi,

    I had the same issue. But I have 2 desktops at work, one at home and a laptop. Some are Win 7, some Win 10. I guess I had this issue with my Lenovo T61 Win 10 laptop. And the advice from JVRaines is right. Try to switch the driver to Legacy 1394 driver. It worked for me. Strangely though if I'm right after some large Win 10 updates the latest driver showed up and worked well.
    Panasonic NV-HS860, LG LV 880 HiFi 6 Head, Sony SLV-SE 630 HiFi, LG BL-162W, Sony TRV33E miniDV for Capture, Canopus ADVC 55, Panasonic DMR-ES10, Sony Vegas Pro12, WinDV
