    I bought and installed a firewire. Then attached the camcorder using
    the new setup.

    Opened Virtualdub but it can't recognize the camcorder. What do I do?
    I had been digiting with Dazzle before with no problems.

    When I open Device Manager, there is a question mark next to Imaging
    Devices. How do I rectify this?

    thanks

    Hi,
    The DV camcorder drivers are only available to programs that use the later
    "DirectX" drivers. VirtualDub uses the older "Video for Windows" drivers and
    so won't recognise the camcorder as a capture device.

    Best regards,
