Hi. I have read many of the messages/guides here with enthusiasm and recently tried to try DV capture. I am using a P3/450, 128mb ram, 20GBHD, ATI AIW 8mb, SB live. I installed my firewire card with no problems, and hooked it up to my DV camcorder (JVC). I get to control the camcorder through the computer (play/pause etc), but do not see any image from my DV tape on the screen of my computer. i can see and hear the tape playback through the camera viewfinder, but i only capture "snow". I have tried adjusting any and all setting on my camera and in ULEAD media studio pro 6 which i am using with no success. Any help or advice whatsoever will be most appreciated. Thank you.

Sometimes, it's the chip on the Firewire card. The best chips are the Lucent and TI. If it's something else, return it. There are quite reported problems with other chipsets.
