Capturing DV footage as one file instead of multi clips

I've been capturing VHS footage through Elements, which has created one file from the whole tape.

 

With mini DV footage, when I try to do the same, it is saving as lots of different files as opposed to just one big file.

 

Is there a way to capture as just one clip? I've turned off  'split scenes' which I thought would resolve, but still capturing as multi-clips.

Which version of the program are you using? DV capture was removed several generations ago.

 

Also, what operating system are you capturing with? I assume you're capturing over a FireWire connection.

Thank you for your reply.

 

I'm using 7.0 and Windows 7 (64-bit) on that computer.

 

I've also been able to capture Hi-8/Digital 8 as one file also, by selecting dv capture, with the help of  Canopus ADVC-55 so know it's possible to capture as one file.

 

Yes, Firewire direct into the PC.
