I am trying to capture video footage from my JVC DV recorder using Cyberlink PowerDirector. The camera is connected by firewire cable and is recognised but when I activate the capture button the video plays on the camera but isn't displayed on the computer and I get the error message "the iLink mode on the HDV machine is not identical to the recorded format on the tape.Please change the iLink mode and try again". I've tried using Windows Moviemaker but that won't capture either. How can I resolve this?
The programme recognises the camera - the description JVC DV appears in the relevant box and the play/forward/rewind buttons operate the camera, but still no capture - just the error message as before.
Doing a Google search for " the iLink mode on the HDV machine is not identical to the recorded format on the tape" brought me to this site, don't know whether you've seen it, the final post on Page 4 seems to be the answer for the person here with a similar problem.
If you do manage to capture HD on to pc and try playback in Windows Media Player you may have to check settings in WMP, Tools, Options, Performance, Advanced, You should have use video mixing renderer selected in the DVD section, as well as use overlays. Above that, the same settings in Video Acceleration should also be set for video mixing renderer and high quality mode.
still no joy. I have an ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT video card fitted and the upto date drivers installed. I'm not trying to capture HD quality footage - just standard DV. It is as if the software assumes the camera is an HDV device - it is not but i can't find any way to tell the programme that. I am also puzzled as to why Windows Moviemaker also seems unable to recognise the tape in the camera.
The Ati Card you keep shouting about is not a Video Capture Card. See click here
You need to just connect your JVC through the USB or Firewire port. I have a JVC Camcorder but it a DV mimi Tape this as all in and out built into the Camcorder including AV in out. So I can connect direct to a Video Recorder VHS and Edit Tape if I wanted to but it's easier me Using Studio 9 to do it. I have used MoviMaker and others but find Studio best for my needs
