    Hi all. I scanned the posts and didn't see much discussion on video
    Camcorders....but I thouht I'd ask the question.

    I bought a Cannon Optura 400 Mini DV camera. I upgraded my operating system
    to XP. I bought and installed a firewire card. I have both Pinnacle
    Software (came with the camera) and Roxio 7.

    I cannot get the digital video from the camera to my PC. With both pieces
    of software I can control the camera from my PC. When I capture the video I
    get "snow". Its colored snow but in now way a picture. The sound is
    jumbled also. So - since it is happening with both software, it has to be
    the card, wire or camera. I assume I'm communicating with the camera since
    I can control it with the software.

    Also, can you suggest a newsgroup about digital video??

    Thanks for any help you can provide. I just spent a pretty penny and still
    can't get my video onto CD. :)
