Question about Sony Dvcam DSR-PDX10 DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Bad DV Out Port

I believe I have a bad port. I've tested my other PDX10 cams on the same Mac and they are all recognized. But for this one, when I plug in the DV Firewire, the DV, NS and Audio Bit Rate all flash, and the computer doesn't see the camera. Has anyone ever had a DV Port go bad? How much might it cost to fix? Is there any chance this is a settings problem? Help is most appreciated!

There are settings like on pg 211 of your manual you might have to switch from analog out to DV out. I bet thats it. There are other options around pg 221 for USB output settings but I didn't see any conflict but it doesn't mean there won't be some.
Good Luck. Leave a comment if you need more info . Just in case here's where to get a copy of the manual: http://www.mannlib.cornell.edu/equipmentandrooms/upload/DSR-PDX10.pdf

USB Driver for dsr pdx10 for mac


You do not need drivers to get the footage from tape to a Mac. You do require a firewire cable and use iMovie or Final Cut to capture.

Panasonic PV-GS35 will not connect to iMac, so can't upload video from mini DV cassettes into iMovie. when I connect with my USB cable, nothing shows up on the iMac saying that the camera or a "N0_NAME"...


So if it's miniDV and you have a firewire cable, it should work. Have you followed this sequence:
If your battery is sufficiently charged to run the cam for an hour's worth of tape, fine, otherwise connect cam to AC power. With cam OFF, connect Firewire cable to Mac and cam. Open iMovie, name your project and create so that the viewer screen comes up. Turn on the cam. At this point, your Mac should, within moments, say "camera connected". Cam needs to be set on "playback" mode for capture. Then click "import" button and your Mac will control the cam.

If you still get a "no camera connected" you have to consider the possibility that either the firewire cable is bad or the firewire port on cam or Mac is bad. If you have more than one firewire port on your Mac, try switching. An Apple store should be able to help you determine if you have a bad cable or cam port, if you take both in to try on their Mac. Hope this gets you on track.

Problem my mac and mini dv deck when they are connected with dv ports


Hello, the mini dv is the port that carries images and video to a television for example, or a computer, but will not help to transfer data to a computer. the firewire port does transfer data to the computer though, this is the reason why it is ackowledged as an external hard drive when you plug it this way. The best is to plug both, this will give you the opportunity to watch on your desktop, and to transfer data

My computer no longer recognizes my JVC GR-D70U mini DV cam when I plug it into a usb port.


Hi, I am not sure. But I believe the camcorder has to be on when you connect to the computer. and I assume you use firewire for this particular camcorder.
I too once had this problem when I used Windows Vista. If you too use Vista, try it with Windows XP.

cheers,

Transfering video to Mac


Digital video on the ZR400 is transferred to a computer only via the DV out port, which will connect to a firewire port on a PC or a Mac. USB will not transfer video, only images to and from the card.

Sony DSR-45 Lost Firewire Signal


Port's fried for sure -- that's a classic Firewire Port Burnout problem. Could be a cheap repair if you can take it to someone who's not afraid to get their hands dirty (soldering, perhaps). I don't know how integrated the port is to the unit (like on a laptop) so good luck!
