Panasonic DV Video Camera and Windows 7

I have a client who has a few year old Panasonic DV Video Camera.  They transfer their digital video onto their PC using an IEEE card and Corel Video Studio.

We have just upgraded his machine to a Windows 7 pro machine.  Now we find out the Digital Video camera is not compatible with Windows 7 and of course Windows 7 will not find the video camera to transfer video.

I am wondering if anyone has come across this issue and tried to use the Windows Xp mode to resolve the issue, wehereby set-up XP Mode and install Video Studio on there in order to import the video to then work with it in Windows 7.

If this can be done, how do we get the XP Mode to recognise the IEEE card??

USB (and IEEE - Firewire) devices won't work on XP mode - especially if the Native USB device doesn't work on Windows 7.

You need to install a fully blown NON XP mode virtual machine - suggest VBOX or vmware player / server.

Then so long as Windows 7 supports "Generic USB devices" which it will do after you've installed the virtual machine software on the Host you can then attach ypur USB / Firewire devices to your GUEST. The Guest will then prompt for the USB driver software which you can install.

Windows XP mode is too limited for this sort of stuff -- it only works for very simple basic legacy applications -- I wouldn't really recommend it at all actually.

The Idea was actually great but it's really hobbled and in any case XP mode won't work on Windows 7 Home premium.
