HDV Capture, Premiere Pro Alternative?

I'm currently capturing some HDV tapes (using a Z7 as the tape deck) but sometimes when I'm capturing within Premiere it just stops at a random time (the time on Premiere's capture window freezes at this time) and doesn't capture the rest, while the Z7 keeps playing.

I've done 3 so far that have worked ok, I had to do one of them twice because it only captured like 15 mins of it.

I've currently tried to capture the 4th tape twice and it' stop now at 22mins the first time and 6mins the second time. I've not got anything else running while it's capturing so that shouldn't be the issue.

Just wondering, are there any other alternatives? HDVSplit doesn't seem to work with the Z7 so I can't use that.

Thanks

How about using a free trial of Sony Vegas?

Surprised HDV Split didn't work for you. I'm using it on both XP , Vista Ultimate 64, and Vista Home 32 with an assortment of Canon HDV cameras. I've read threads that HDV split has trouble on Windows 7 machines.

Have you tried Windows Movie Maker or Windows Media Encoder? There's another free program called VLC that I've used to capture HDV under Linux. There's a Windows version of that.

I think HDVSplit requires the legacy firewire driver on Windows 7. The new firewire drivers have added security features to prevent an unauthorized devices from reading and writing directly to system memory. If you are worried about a thief sneaking into your computer room, connecting a special firewire device to you computer and obtaining access to the system memory, don't install the legacy driver.
