Question about Panasonic AG-DVC30 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
When I try to capture video from my Panasonic via firewire, Final Cut says that it does not detect it, despite the fact that it is on and in playback mode. I know it's not the firewire cable, as I've tried replacing it, and it's not Final Cut, as I haven't changed any of the settings since I last uploaded with it. I even tried another computer. The only thing I can think of, other than spontaneous malfunction, is that I might have changed some setting on the camera while tooling around? Help!!
Please be sure the 1394 function is enabled in the user menu. Depending on the serial number run, your camera may not have this menu function. We have many of these models coming in with this problem because the DV (1394) communication is lost due to damage to the DV process IC. This often occurs from incorrect insertion of the 1394 cable in the rear of a computer, the connector itself is easily inserted backwards and is now compromised causing B+ to ride in on the data lines of the cable which instantly damages the process IC.
If the camera communicates with any other 1394 device, the IC is not damaged.
Good luck my friend,
