HELP! My CPU no longer recognizes my GL2!!
 
*This may take a computer wiz to help, but I would appreciate any ideas/feedback on this.
In short, I switched videocards temporarily, then switched back to my original video card, and now when I attach my GL2 Via FireWire, my computer doesn't properly recognize it. There are no neccessary drivers for importing from a GL2, that's what baffles me. I know it's not the camera, I tried importing on someone else's cpu and it worked.
Now for the details...
*I work on a pretty old cpu, Windows XP Service Pack 2, CPU is AMD XP3200+ 2.9 GHz 1 GB RAM....I import not using my video card rather another card with 3 firewire imports. I took out my Radeon 8500 DV Video Card, tried out a different one, but then Windows then told me I have to reactivate because of hardware changes, then I tried to import footage, it didn't work, in the device manager I found my GL2 and it said " Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. (Code 19) Click Troubleshoot to start the troubleshooter for this device." I tried to troubleshoot with no success. Then I switched back to my Radeon 8500 Video Card thinking the old configuration will still work and it doesn't, I can't import anything now. Any hope before I have to take my computer to a repair shop?

I have a vague recollection that you can delete the device in the device manager and Windows ought to see it as a new device next time you attach it. I think I had a problem like this with some other hardware years ago and tried it. Not sure I remember if it worked or not, though!

I hope someone else can offer more help. Like I say this was just a vague recollection and might be totally wrong.

I'll check back in the AM and if nobody smarter than I has chimed in I'll call around and see if I can find someone who knows what they're talking about.

Probably need to remove and reinstall your video card drivers as a start. Any you may need to remove and reinstall other drivers associated with the video and IEEE1394 capability, especially if they came with your NLE capture system.

Reactivation of Windows XP is relatively painless, and can be triggered by any number of system changes such as a new system hard drive, change in CPU, change in video card, network card, etc. These are oriented to trapping installation of the software on more than one PC via drive imaging processes.

Jim, I tried the device manager method, but I get the same error message, I will try rolling back my video card drivers and or reinstalling them.
