I want to download video from my Sony DCR camcorder using a firewire connection, but Premiere Elements doesn’t seems to recognize the device.  I can play video using WinDV.  Doing a Google search (I am new to Adobe Premier) it seems like in previous versions you cannot use a firewire and Adobe Premiere to download video.  Is this correct?  Is it best to use WinDV for all video?  I have about 20 cassettes worth of video I would like to download.  Is the quality using WinDV good or is there a better option?  Thank you in advance.

Bob:

Thank you.  I am using WinDV and it works.  Hower I took a cassette with ~2hrs of video and instead of 1 large avi file, WinDV broken in up into 10 or so smaoller files.  Somwtims the break is mid video.  Is that common?  So can I use Premiere Elements to rejoin the segments?  Thank you for your help.
