The Spark works quite well under NT 4 or 98 (not 95), the only thing is that the new driver has been a little troublesome. Just use the driver thats on the CD-ROM, not a problem. Its a very transparent device with no conflicts to speak of. I like it.

I worked with Spark and Premiere for a year. Worked great. Never dropped frames. I now have MotoDV which is compatible with Premiere for the "timeline playback" feature. Too bad Spark wasn't compatible. Playing your footage straight out from the timeline to your camera or deck sure makes things a lot easier. I've just finished a "How-To" on DV moviemaking. Take a look at when you get a chance. Good Luck, Steve Saylor
