"Hardware not found"

I recently acquired a FAST-Dazzle DV.now AV card and breakout box. I'm running Windows XP, when I first turned the computer on it asked me to install new hardware, it went through and installed a bridge driver, a firewire driver, and it tried to install another driver which didnt work.

I since deleted those drivers that it tried/did install. I tried installing the latest dv.now fast forward software from pynacle (or whatever their name is) and its telling me hardware not found. Now, I would also be interested in using Adobe Premier, but there is no possiblity I can get version 6.5.

I'm just wondering how screwed I really am. I would like to use the card because I have no other way of importing video onto my computer.

Does anyone have the specific drivers needed to install the card? (since I cant get actually get the files out of the install file if it wont install)

You can probably find a copy of Premiere 6.5 if you check computer flea markets, used software outlets, etc. Be sure you get a full Premiere, not an upgrade disk. You need an original full product license number to install Premiere, etc. You may need build 261 or later for Premiere 6.5.

Premiere should be installed before the DV.now AV software.

However, there is some indication that some OEM cards as distributed under other names might have an issue with the last round of Dazzle drivers.

There are also reports that the DV.now AV card may work better in some slots htan in others. This tests to be system specific and may depend on what is in the other slots.

Also, some specific systems had problems with DV.now AV, as I recall it was an issue with certain brands of BIOS.

The DV.now AV drivers (which include the FAST Forward program) run over 17 MB. Rather large to e-mail.

The Fast driver installation is imbedded in the Fast FORWARD software installation process. As I recall, it does not use the Windows driver installation system. The drivers and all driver installationis part of the 17 MB package.

There are three .INF files.
