    hi I'm a new member & would be grateful for some help
    For 4 years I had a perfectly working video still capture system using Win 98/Panasonic 3ccd video camera/Radius PhotoDV (which included IEEE1394 firewire card (texas instruments), adobe Photoshop 4.0LE and PhotoDV). This year I upgraded to Millenium without problems. This system was then stolen. A new computer with Millenium, new 3ccd video camera, Sony 900, was bought as Panasonic was unobtainable. A sleepless weekend on the net and I discovered Radius no longer existed, taken over by Digital Origin, who were bought out by Media 100. Luckily Media 100 were selling IntroDV which included IEEE1394 firewire card (texas instruments), adobe Photoshop deluxe LE and PhotoDV. A purchase over the net & 3 days later via Fed Exp I installed everything, although I hated the look/feel of Photoshop deluxe compared to the clean look of 4.0 LE. So I moved the PhotoDV plugin from Photoshop deluxe to 4.0 LE and binned Photoshop deluxe. This system worked perfectly for 2 months. Then it didn't. My computer man decided the problem was Millenium which he hated and installed Windows xp professional. Now my problems started. No amount of installing, uninstalling or reinstalling of PhotoDV seemed to work. I checked the firewire and according to xp it worked fine. However I couldn't verify this as I was unable to find it under device manager. ??? xp's crappy low res still capture worked fine but although both photoshop and PhotoDV import programs launched I was unable to get a picture on the screen. Any ideas???
