I had a similar problem with my Sharp camorder.
The preview window on XP simply displays corrupted images.
At the end, I bought a different firewire card and it worked for me.

I own the Sony Handycam DCR-DVD103. I am having trouble importing the video files to my computer. I have finalized the discs and imported video to my computer in .VOB format. I have a file converter, so I attempted to convert them to .WMV. However, all of my videos are cut short now, I have lost a lot of data. I would rather use Picture Package or Picture Motion Browser, but I have not found a driver download. The link http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-download.pl?upd_id=4750& requires
