I have a problem and I don't know where to start solving it. I have looked around on these threads and found nothing to start me off, so if you have any ideas or could point me to useful threads it would help.

I want to capture the video out from a Sony FX1e (whil eit is recording, so I can't use the firewire - d-oh). I have an ATI Radeon X850XT video card, but with Virtualdub, Windows Moviemaker, they both crash when I select the card as the capture source. By crash, I mean the screen goes black and nothing happens after that until I reset the PC. This happens even without the camera plugged in so its not that - its the PC/Card software combination.

The card is newly installed so the drivers are up to date. Is this a common problem with a simple known solution? Where should I start with diagnosing this? Help with simple steps would be greatly appreciated. :cool:

I believe that card uses WDM. So try using Virtual VCR.
I think VDub is only for VFW run capture devices, iirc.
You might be able to test using VLC (open device), Media Player Classic, or VirtualVCR.

VirtualDub v.1.6.13 (finally) can use either (WDM or VFW) for capture...
