I have a vhs mini tape video camera. I use pinnacle studio 9 software to refine my videos I take and to refine the video for viewing. My computer is a Dell with Windows Xp home edition.
I connect my camera through a dedicated fire wire card. Everything worked great, except I didn't have enough memory or fast enough video card to view the whole video without saving the video in segments and working on those segments seperately and then putting the segments together in a finished video. I decided to upgrade my system, I installed 1 gig of
133mhz sdram and an ATI 256mb. Radeon 9600 video card. Also I installed a 500 watt coolmax power supply. Everything works great and device manager shows that there are no trouble spots.
A week after I installed this hardware, I went to work on a video, the sound output of the video has a clicking sound to it and the video part sometimes has a line through it, these were
not there before. So I uninstalled the firewire card and let winxp reinstall the drivers on a reboot. That fixed the video part, but the clicking sound is still there. I tried different tapes in
the video camera. You guys have any thoughts about this?
