Try to install a driver for the HDR-FX1 hdv handycam from the manufacturer, and check the Apple site for any other drivers available for your machines.

I want to download video from Canon HV10 to computer, the Zoombrowser only has stills, can you help


How are you connecting the camera - often this is the case if you use USB - to download the video you need to use the firewire connection - sometimes known as IEEE1394
All the manuals and info is here http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=369&modelid=14059
Page 64 of the manual shows the connection and refers to DV cable, and talks about using the DV for video IEEE1394 If you are unsure if your PC has a firewire connection look for this type of connector http://img.tomshardware.com/us/2004/04/02/go_external/i.link.jpg OR Have a look at device manager Press the Windows key (bottom left of the keyboard} and at the same time press the R key, now in the search box that appears - type devmgmt.msc - on the screen that appears look for network adapters, use the + sign to open the network adapters - and you should see an item with 1394 listed if you have a firewire connection

Hello, I recently shot a student film on a Canon HV20 HDV Camcorder, Problem is my school doesn't have an HD deck to allow log and capture. I have final cut 6 and still can't get the setting right to...


This camera works fine with FCP 6. I use it all the time. You need to use the Easy Setup for Firewire basic HDV 1080/60i (or whatever sounds like that). The camera should be connected from it's small connector FIREWIRE port(under back panel cover -- USB port will not work for this use) to either a Firewire 400 or Firewire 800 port (auto-switches to 400Mbps if the device doesn't support 800) on the computer. Cables are available with a variety of connectors for this for under $20 ea (it's digital -- i.e. don't overspend on cables unless you have an actual problem!).

My JVC GY-HD111E isn't located in final cut pro


Are you using HDV, make sure you set the signal to DV on the camera. Does it have a signal out option to switch from video to dv / firewire? Have you checked to see if it is supported? Also just keep trying, turn camera on and off, restart the computer with firewire connected then without. I had this problem with a deck and it randomly started working after my 5th try.

My Mac does not recognize my Canon HV 30 DV when i connect the FireWire.


I've been around the block with this for days, including a fresh installation of the software on my MacBook Pro. Sigh.

Here's what seemed to work:

1) Reset Vixia HV30 (tiny reset button behind the battery). Did not change any settings on the camera after that.

2) Installed Canon's software that dropped some canon-related files in Library/Quicktime folder.

3) Opened new iMovie 6.0.3 and Final Cut Express HD 3.5.1 projects (a) FCE (using Easy Setup in FCE) to Apple Intermediate Codec 1080i60 (b) iMovie 'HDV 1080i'.

4) Connected 4-pin --> 6-pin firewire cable out of the camera to a bus-powered external drive and from the drive, firewire 800 --> firewire 800 --> MacBook Pro 10.5.8.

This was a last-ditch, Hail Mary effort. It worked, and the camera showed up in the System Profiler firewire window, too, whereas it had not before all of the above. Still does not show up when hooked directly from the camera to the FW 800 input, but at least I can capture now.

Get Final Cut Pro 5.04 to communicate with my XH A1


Many HDV cameras and decks are able to play and record DV as well as the higher-resolution HDV format. Additionally, many of these HDV devices will attempt to automatically change their settings to match the format of the tape that it's playing. Here are some tips for using these types of devices with Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express.
Tip: Make explicit settings on your HDV device. Instead of using an "Auto" setting, make your own settings on your HDV device to keep the communication going between it and Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express. This also helps Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express keep things running smoothly with HDV devices that handle both DV-NTSC and DV-PAL.
For example, say you're using an HDV deck to capture footage from a tape that was recorded as DV-NTSC. Before capturing in Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express, make sure that you set the deck to DV mode specifically—don't rely on Auto mode. With some devices, you may need to disconnect it from FireWire to change the mode.
For a common capture workflow, this sequence of steps can provide the best results:
  1. Quit Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express if it's open.
  2. Insert your tape into your HDV deck or camcorder.
  3. Use the device's menus to set it to match the format that's recorded on the tape.
  4. Connect your HDV device to your computer with a FireWire cable.
  5. Open Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express.
  6. Choose an Easy Setup for DV or HDV (whichever matches the format recorded on your tape).
  7. Proceed to Log and Capture.
Tip: Quit Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express before changing modes. It's generally a good idea to quit Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express before you change the mode on your device from DV to HDV, or from HDV to DV, and then re-open the application again.
Tip: Use an Easy Setup to play back non-default HDV format footage on your HDV device. You can use Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express to make your HDV device play back footage in its non-default HDV format. For example, maybe you have a 1080i60 HDV device and want to play back footage that was recorded as 1080i50. Or perhaps you have a 1808i50 HDV device and you want to play back footage that was recorded as 1080i60. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Connect your camera to your computer.
  2. In Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express, choose an HDV preset Easy Setup that matches the format of the tape's footage (you don't need to restart Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express).
  3. Your device's LCD display should automatically display a switch to 60 or 50, indicating the type of media that's being played.
Playing back non-default DV format footage on your HDV device You can also use your HDV device to play back footage in its non-default DV format too. For example, maybe you have a 1080i60 HDV device and want to play back footage that was recorded as DV-PAL. Or maybe you have a 1080i50 HDV device and want to play back footage that was recorded as DV-NTSC. If so, follow these steps:
  1. Make sure that your device is in DV/DVCAM mode.
  2. Put your device into Play/Pause mode, then open the Log and Capture window in Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express.
  3. Make sure that your device's LCD (or other readout screen) displays the same format as your tape or Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express will misinterpret what type of device you have.
Tip: Avoid recording both HDV and DV formats on the same tape. Use separate tapes whenever you want to record in a different format. If you need to record over existing footage in a different format (for example, you have a tape with DV-PAL on it, but you want to record over it with HDV 1080i50), it's a good idea to black and code the tape, or completely record over the old footage with contiguous recording in the new format. If the tape contains even a second of, say, DV in the middle of an HDV tape (or vice versa), it could cause unexpected results later when you try to capture video from that tape.

Firewire port


If the physical connector is broken, replacement cost for that part is about $30.00 (connector is mounted on a circuit board which needs to be replaced.) If the connector is good, but the firewire interface in the camera is bad, repair involves replacement of the main circuit board, which is between $400 and $500. These are parts costs, they don't include labor.
