This has happened from time to time with Apple's implementation of FW control and certain DV cameras in the past. I remember having that problem with one of my cameras a few years back. At some point Apple tweaks the drivers and it goes away.

I have two firewire controllers, neither allow the PC to recognize the HV10

I want to try out Ulead Video studio. It doesn't see the device.

Any Ideas? Does the HV10 show as a device under My Computer when correctly attached?

Thanks.
I see you are having similar problems with your capture as well. I cannot get the driver to load. Either from disk or Canon download?! SP2 as well no previous DV cameras used on this HD or XP OS install.
Is there a Canon HV-10 HDV driver available for the WIN XP OS? My USB ports are good, maybe a batch of defective firewire cables shipped with the HV-10's?
Thanks,
Christo

USB port? included firewire cable? I think you are mistaken-
No such thing for HDV. The cable and Canon software/disk drivers are for *USB STILL PHOTO TRANSFER* - NOT for DV nor HDV video. The included cable is a USB cable.

Buy a firewire cable, and WinXPsp2 should recognize it with no driver needed.
Would be nice if Canon included a firewire cable, and this confusion would be avoided...

For info on how HDV cameras show up under Device Manager, see some connection instructions-
it's NOT under Imaging devices, like DV cameras...
it's AV/C device under Sound/Video/Game controllers...

I have no problems with my HV-10 capture on osx or xp. My friend did have a problem with his but it was due to bad firewire card on his mobo.

just wanted to put in my 2 cents on hv10 with xp

There it is, Merry Xmas to you Colin! The burden of confusion has been lifted after I used my Sony Handi-Cam firewire cable... What a waste of time, thanks for nothing Canon!, and I won't be using your camera for still images anyway. Why does a company do there wise ass things anyway? BY the way this is a tiny camera for somebody with a full size right hand. The manual focus needed to be at the lens ring to do it right....

Aha! Glad to help remove some of the holiday "some assembly/batteries required" frustration :) Enjoy the video...

I think some of the Sony cams actually do stream video over USB2 cable, but only degraded webcam-type quality, so that's some of the confusion...
but yeah, for a $1000 video camera, you'd think they'd include the primary usage cable instead of the other secondary one. (especially when many have (faster) cardreaders for mem cards or existing usb cables anyway.)

The HV10 actually does decent stills, you should try some- fine for most casual stuff, it still has a bit of "video" feel to some of the edges/colors, but much much better than most SD video stills. Can't beat the convenience of simultaneous still 2MP-wide shots while recording video :) (although note that the low-light simultaneous stills are very grainy, for those (and proper lighting/flash), switch to still mode.)

Here's something....

All this traffic and no one mentions HDVSplit?
http://strony.aster.pl/paviko/hdvsplit.htm

I found out about it here...
http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/showthrea...light=HDVSplit

I use HDVSplit for my capturing needs with my HV10.
I just use it to capture streams and do not use it to automatically divide scenes... it doesn't do too well with that... :)
