      I ordered the education version of Xpress Pro. It didn’t come with a book or anything!!!

      I’m trying to capture footage from a mini dvcam tape. I inserted the tape into my camera (sony pd170) the first capture worked. Then I tried to capture more footage and an error message appeared.

      Exception: A non-drop frame tape was inserted. A drop frame tape was expected. Please insert the correct dropframe tape.

      I’m soooooooo frustrated!!! I never changed tapes this is the same tape that I started with. WHY is this happening. it’s like the tape switched from non-drop to drop frame on its own.

      PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE help me!! What do I need to do??
