I have an Abit KV-80 motherboard with an on board 1394 port. I purchased the proper cable that would hook my digital camcorder to my computer. Once I hook it up Microsofts, video capturing softwares starts. I am able to control the camera through the software. When I press play the camera starts playing and i see video on the camera's screen but not in the preview window on my computer. When i press record to start capturing the video nothing happens. I have all download a couple of free or demo video capturing softwares and they all do they same thing. One of the captured about 1 second of video, than stops. I went to abit's website to see if there were any driver updates. None of the updates appeared to have anything to do with the 1394 port. Does anyone have any suggestions other than go and buy a PCI 1394 card.
