Ok, i have a Sony camcorder that supports firewire transfers.  I bought a Firewire card that has the NEC D-72872 chip.  My computer is a 1.1ghx Athalon, 1 gig of ram, 20 (11 free) & 27 (17 free) hard drives, running win2k.  When i connect the camera it detects it fine and everything.  In Premier 6 it allows me to fast forward/rewind the camera fine, but as soon as the camera begins to play it loses contact w/ the camera.  I have tried serveral different programs (Pixela (came w/ camera) & Ulead's VideoStudio 5.0 DV) some thing on all of them.  I have moved the card to a different slot, but the same thing happens.  What else could it be? (The card is OHCI compatible. (1.0 & 1.1)
              Thanks

Does a friend or collegue have a computer with Firewire already installed where you can test this camera?  In other words, a computer that is using a different Firewire adapter.  If you know someone with an Apple, Sony, or Toshiba laptop, the newer models have Firewire built in.  

Since everything otherwise works and the computer does not lock up or otherwise complain, I think the camera should be the first suspect because it is easiest to check.  As soon as you can confirm that the camera behaves this way in another computer, we can move on to more complex reasons.

I agree in principle.
It may also be good to bring over a different camera and test it on your machine.

I hope this helps !

Well, today i bought a different card.  The camera works well with the new card.  After i posted the question i found a couple other references to a problem similar to mine on some mewgroups.  The card i had just appears to be crap. Don't buy a firewire card based on the NEC D-72872 chip.. thanks though
