I tried for serveral times to uninstall and install the driver but the FAST solfware still claimed that there is no device on my PC.
Is there any person can help me to solve this problmes?
(I used driver version 1.7.255)

Did windows perhaps install its own TI drivers for the DV now AV board, which might be causing the problem?

Did you install it in the proper sequence?
i.e., 1) Premiere, 2) DV now AV board, 3) drivers?

Did you try different slot. FAST rcommended slot 2 or 3.

Thanks for your replay!

Windows always install the TI driver automatically!
But I'm unwilling to give up and try to follow your advice right now!

May I ask 1 more other question?
Can I use Premiere 6.5 and Premiere Pro?

I do not know about XP, but in Win2K and Win98 you could tell windows to skip installing the TI (and other related) driver. It involved telling Windows to skip installing three drivers for multimedia devices. I forget the exact messages, it has been a while.

Premiere Pro requires WinXP, but the FF drivers for DV.now AV do not support Premiere Pro. (And never will given that Pinnacle bought DV.now (both Dazzle and FAST actually) and has divorced from Premiere support.) I suspect you can have both installed on your system and use 6.5 with DV.now AV. (At least 6.0 and 6.5 would coexist on a system.)

Alternatively I suspect that you could forego the analog capture capability of DV.now AV and just use it as a TI firewire card for digital capture with Premiere Pro.

Anothe alternative is to make the system dual boot, or possibly with dual configurations to support each option.

Sound too bad for all DV Now products owners!
We can't use with WinXP, Premiere Pro,
and the capture card just used as a normal 1394 interface!

Products get o4rphaned when companies get bought and sold. The one sort of bright spot is that Pinnacle was offering a trade-up to Liquid Edition Pro at an almost reasonable price. You could trade in your DV now AV board, at least in the US. But it means switching from Premiere. However, Premiere Pro is very different from Premiere 6.5, so ther is a learning curve in any case.

People have made DV.now AV work with XP. I just have never tried it. Other old threads may discuss XP in more detail.

I expected problems some time ago when I was setting out on this track, but for me DVnowAV works fine with Win XP and Premiere 6.5. Have re-linked to old projects and also created new ones with this configuration.

Maybe try starting again with the install, following the advice on order of steps given by dpalomaki in an earlier note in this thread i.e. remove software, de-install and re-install following the recommended order.
Keep a secure copy of any drivers etc that you do not have in current version off-line.
Let us know how you get on, JIMP

Are you using DV.now AV board and drivers? If so, Movie Maker may not be able to talk to the IEEE1394 port on the board.

I am using only what was installed with initial windows xp set up. I am a novice very little knowledge at the moment, eager to learn. I am capturing through a USB connection ok and can see the USB driver but am not sure if Ieee link driver is installed. If there is no 1394 driver where can I get one and what specific driver would I need. desperate for help

What kind of PC do you have (make and model)?

Does it have the DV now.AV video capture board installed?

My PC is not any specific make but been put together to cover fairly broad and general requirements. It has an 80gig disc,512mgb ram,Athelon 2.16g/hz processor and a 741GX-M mother board. I have managed to track down the guy who put it together and discovered that there is no capture video boards installed at all,,, so little wonder I cannot see 1394 port it is not connected. The assembly guy was either not very helpful or not very knowledgeable concerning my movie maker problem,saying that there are many ways of approaching the best set-up using software and hardware devices. So it seems I have something of a clean slate, would be very grateful for your recommendations on my next course of action.

Try obtain a generic Firewire (IEEE1394) card and install it. Be sure it is listed as XP compatible if you are using XP. XP should find it and install the necessary drivers. Sounds like DV.now AV does not come into play with your system.

To dpalomaki and Thermartaman: As promised reporting my results. Now editing movies in xp movie maker, saving to hard disc, importing into Sonic DVD, adding menus and burning to DVD. Play back on Sony DVD player. Can also save back to camera tape from Movie maker via firewire card resulting in the best quality play back. However the larger projects, ie 20 mins. of movie time or more,have experienced random periods of vision and sound distorton. Have asked Sony about settings and tape quality, but no solutions yet. Any ideas?

Can you go to XP's device manager and see the 1394 port? If so, can you click on update drivers and XP whould find the generic.

New to forum and old user of dvNowAV, did you chaps ever resolved your driver installation and other problems?
I have been looking to buy a new replacement card, although have decided to stay with my 5 year old fast dvNowAV.
I have on many occassions reinstalled drivers on clean and existing XP installs without any problems. Card working 100%, capture from Sony and JVC into Premiere 6.5, and now Premiere Elements. Also use external TV to monitor transitions and completed video from breakout box without problem. This even works if I use basic firewire connection to PC not going thru the card. No loss of frames, blue screens, etc.
Give me a shout if any problems and maybe I can help.

Tried installing DV.now AV on a MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum motherboard running XP with no luck, could not get all three drivers to install (did get one or two installed), so board is not recognized as a DV.now AV. Tried two differnt slots. Wonder if it is a problem with the chip set?

Did your system install normally?
