    It is likely the camera. Having this problem with my PD 150. Called
    repair shop. they said might be something insignificant like a bad
    firewire connection on the camera or something very bad. I haven't
    taken the camera in yet.

    Could also be impatience. It can sometimes take two-three minutes for
    a TRV900 to be recognized. Same applies to ALL other '1394 devices.
    The sequence of events also matters. i.e.: Power up camera, connect
    '1394 cable, wait...wait....device enumerated...launch capture
    program...go-to-work

    VERSUS

    launch capture program...connect '1394 cable...power up
    camera...WAIT...WAIT...device enumerated...go-to-work

    VERSUS

    (all other combinations and permutations...BUT DON'T GET IMPATIENT).

    When using Windows XP you should hear some multi-tone (de-do) when the
    system recognizes the camera. Whether the camera is on before you hook-up
    the cable makes no difference. Once the power is on you should hear the
    tones after a bit.

    Always hook-up the camera and have the power on before opening the NLE
    program.

    The likelihood the camera is not recognized because of a problem with the
    camera seems remote. Is the firewire card OHCI? Also, when attempting to
    capture you may need to tell the capture module which input you are using.
    You may have some analog setting loaded without realizing it. Ensure you
    have selected 1394.

    Not really, at least my PD 150 is doing it. Maybe bad firewire socket
    on camera.

    Are you putting the camera or dvd recorder into "play" mode?

    My digital still and two dv camorders that I have used all have to be put
    into this mode before the PC finds the device.

    Some video software apps are persnickity about recognizing the camera/deck
    if you try plugging them in once the software is up and running. Plug in
    the cammie/deck first, then launch your NLE.

    Most NLEs have some sort of "Deck/Camera Configuration" thingee you have to
    go through before the software will "see" your playback device.
