I bought this camcorder last september and haven.t been able to capture on pc.
I am trying to us Windows Movie maker .
Even sent camcorder back to samsung for checking, tried 3 firewires.

my pc is dell 510m laptop.

Error message is:

A video capture device was not detected. verify that a device is turned on and connected properly. then try again.

Please can you help??

Try a different firewire card driver. When I dv edited with 98se (now w2k) I changed the driver to generic Texas Instruments (instead of windows) which did the trick.
