Problem transfering DV back to Camcorder

I can download video from my SONY PC105 and TRV120e DV camcorders to
my PC via Firwire perfectly without ever a dropped frame.

But when I try to transfer a DV-AVI file back to the camcorder, the
camcorder will frequently lose the video (i.e. just shows a blue
screen on the camcorder)for a second or two then continue.

I am using Win XP-pro and have closed every program running in the
foreground and background it's just about possible to do (inc. virus
checker). I have tried two Firewire cables and the result is the same
i.e. perfect Cam -> PC & intermittent faulty PC -> Cam transfer

The fault seems to be random and not at perfectly timed intervals

Has anyone experienced this problem got a solution? Could it be a PCI
conflict?
However, the Device Manager says there are no conflicts and all
drivers are working.

Any help much appreciated.

Go to device manager and disable USB and network devices when you do
the export to tape. I had similar problems to yours from Premiere -
doing this solved it. WHen you're done, just reenable USB and network
and you're good to go - no need to reboot. I'd be interested to hear
whether it works for you...

THANKS!

I've transfered approx. 30 minutes so far without a glitch so your
simple solution appears to have worked!

Kind regards
