This isn't just limited to DV Studio. Its all firewire throws the error in 1.1. Automation error, or device has become detached from the service.

Since Windows Movie Maker still works great, its gotta be 1.1 that still isn't working under Win XP, which is a mind boggler, since the VAST majority of video editing will be done on Win XP machines over the next year or so.

Hello James,

At the moment we are facing problems with our 1394 video converter and Sony 1394 cameras under XP. We are working on this right now and we feel confident to provide a solution soon.

We found that turning off the power management of XP helps.

Best regards

I can't ask people to do that!

*Waiting sort of patiently for the next release in hopes that it works right with Win XP and any camera plugged into it, whether its Firewire or analog*

We investigated the problem and found out the following:

The error only happens:

1. if a DV device is selected
2. the operating system is Windows XP

The problem is caused by the DV driver that ships with Windows XP. It does not occur on Windows 2000, nor with other devices.

In contrast to Win2K, the XP DV driver does not support different video standards (like PAL or NTSC). Therefore, IC Imaging Control queries the device for a list of video formats that are not video standard dependant. This leads to an empty list of available video standards, which is considered an invalid state.

We will provide a workaround for this behavior in the next service pack.

In addition, the next service pack will enable you to control the drive of a DV device (PLAY, STOP, REWIND etc). DV codec parameter settings will be supported, too.

Best regards
