ADVC110 I am using the unit via a firewire connection to my macpro. None of the input selection light come on and I can't pick up the unit when the VCR input is playing as well when using apps such as iMovie, etc. Any thoughts?

I'm guessing that you have it connected via a 6pin firewire on the ADVC100 to a 4pin firewire on your macpro. The device needs to be connected via 6pin to 6pin in order for the device to get power, otherwise you'll have to buy a AC adapter (which is not included). Otherwise it's a great device for DV conversion on multiple platforms!

    Well, if it's fried, then take it back!! (If it's still under warranty...)

    Otherwise it's most likely some solder points in the machine, and unless you know what your doing, I'd take it to a shop to get fixed.

    oh, and just to let you know...if you connect the 6pin to 4pin then you would not get any power to that device, you'll have to get a AC adapter in order for it to work that way...


    ...for $300, I'd try and at least get a universal adapter if it's not under warranty. (I'm sure that you'll find other uses for the adapter if the video converter doesn't work...)

Place the camera in VCR mode, connect a firewire cable and open iMovie, that should work. If not open the System Profiler and see if the camera is on the Firewire Bus.
Could be a bad cable or dead camera port, try with other equipment to trouble shoot the culprit.

connect box to Mac via FireWire

The connection would be, analog into device, firewire to computer. Play the analog device and import into iMovie, Final Cut or other editor. They should see the signal and therefore import to a digital file. Check with System Profiler to see if it sees the firewire device. If your software allows playing to the firewire device, the ADVC300, then you can record to those analog devices.

Need adaptor for older Sony analog camcorder - CCD-TRV70 DC 6V


You need to get a Digital to Analogue converter such as the Canopus ADVC110 A/D Converter. (circa $225). There may be cheaper alternatives. (you might also be able to use a digital camcorder that has a built in Analogue to digital converter):
 Canopus 77010150100 ADVC110 Converter

The Canopus comes with a 6-pin firewire cable. Since your Dell Studio has a 4 pin Firewire (actually called iLink) you will also need a 6-pin to 4-pin cable or an adapter:
 Firewire 6-PIN To 4-PIN Cable

 Cables To Go - 27028 - Firewire 6-Pin Female 4-Pin Male Adapter

You hook your Sony up to the A/D converter with audio and video cables (usually supplied with your camcorder) and hook the converter to you Dell with a firewire cable. Then you capture the video using some video capture software. I don't know what comes with windows these days.

Firewire connection lost


Ok, here it is. There is an answer is the answer based section on the Focusrite website. Basically it is recognizing it as a firewire device and not an audio device, or so I have gathered. So you need to uninstall the Saffire software and then: 1. Find your FireWire (IEEE 1394) controller in Device Manager (START>CONTROL PANEL>SYSTEM>). 2. Click "Update driver" 3. Select "Browse my computer for driver software" 4. Click "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer" 5. Install the driver that ends with "(Legacy)". 6. Reinstall your Saffire driver using the latest version from the Focusrite website, and re-connect your device.
Hope this helps,
Cheers - DJ Zerokewl

Cant capture video


Not having camcorder control is normal, as the ADVC110 doesn't translate DV (AV/C) control to anything else. It just accepts and replies to deck control commands so the capture application doesn't get stuck waiting for a response.

First off, make sure you only have the ADVC110, your VCR, and your computer connected. No other Firewire devices.

Be sure your have the output from your VCR connected to the ADVC's input. Connect your VCR's output to your TV. You should see in iMovie the same image you see on your TV, slightly delayed.

ADVC110 - not recognised by computer


If you're using the AC adapter, try it without (using a 6-pin to 6-pin Firewire cable) the AC adapter.

Otherwise try a different Firewire cable.

Cannot connect camera to new laptop


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.
