Can't get screen capture

 I'm having trouble getting a screenshot. I installed the SDk,
Eclipse, the drivers, enable usb debugging, like the instructions say.
I open DDMS and it recognizes my phone without any problems. When I
try to do a screen capture, it says screen not available. In the
command box it says "timeout" and "truncated reply from ADB fb data".
Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

My phone isn't rooted and is running RC33. I'm running windows vista
on my computer.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

 I believe screen capture is disabled in production devices for
security reasons.

Can't get screen capture

No, I can capture screens from my stock G1 through DDMS. I just did
three this morning.

I'd be more inclined to say it's a problem with the Vista drivers,
partly because there have been reported issues with said drivers, and
partly because it's such fun to blame Vista... ;-)
