Maybe its soemthing with ME itself,try installing any pathes from your mb cd.The other computers had ME also?What about support from the manufacturer,a driver update or a cable problem could also be the case.

I agree with Qdoc
Ive had trouble running firewire gear off win98 ver 1 - I think the most stable os's for firewire is win98 ver2 or maybe win2k I had to get confimation of this from both the Firewire card supplier and the firewire product supplier
But overall the best setup for firewire / DV video cameras is Apple - any supporting Imac to G4 they have built in firewire and support in their os

Windows ME is a faulty software. If you can try to move up to Win2000 then you should have better luck. My only problem with 2000 is that there is a lack of drivers for what Microsoft claims is the solution to all the prior problems. The firewire does work, however...

Plz Install the Video Capture Update from M$.
It is a update that you need to install after installing M$ DX 8.0 or 8.0a.
