I have my Firepod connected to my computer with a firewire cable, yet the control panel of the Firepod still shows there is no device. I use it with Reaper recording software and have had no problems until I just disconnected everything to move it to a different location. Now I am getting this error message when I open Reaper to work on projects. Any ideas?

Have you been able to successfully do this in the past? What software are you using to try to record with? Does it seem to recognize the guitar in the software, just will not react, or does it not appear to see it at all?
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.
Win 7 is probably incompatible with the Firepod. Others find the same thing and unless the Firepod manufacturer writes new drivers, it will not work with Win 7.
Probably the best course of action is to go back to XP or the previous OS you have used with it.
NEVER switch operating systems without checking that hardware and software is compatible with the new OS.
Microsoft is notorious for incompatibility of new OS versions such as Vista and now Win 7.
How did You connect Canopus? Canopus has 2 Firewire slots - on the back and on the front.
If You connect FW cable to a front slot, then, Canopus will not work. Only with external power supply. I´m offering the next proceeding:
1. Connect ADVC with FW cable 6 to 4 to Your macbook via back FW slot. The ADVC lights will now on. On front panel by default light is on mode "digital". If the light don't work - it's a Canopus problem. If light is up and working, then next step.
2. Go to apple menu-about this mac - more info - firewire. You MUST see here Your Canopus a a device. If so, go to the next step.
3. Connect Your VCR to analog inputs, on the front panel of Canopus.
4. Run FCE. If it says "apple firewire device is missing" then is something wrong with Canopus. If not, proceed to next step.
5. On the top of the front panel of Canopus, press button. The light changes from digital to analogue.
6. Press apple+8, then capture settings. Set the firewire device as uncontrollable device. Make sure that in capture window is "vtr ok". Turn the VCR on
7. Press the play button on capture window. In the window appears the screen of Your VCR. Then press play on VCR and then "capture now" on capture panel. Voila! Must to work.
1.i gained info about the mains supply data (9 volts 2 a, minus pole in the center pole of the plug) which is a quite exotic supply in comparison to standard devices with 12 volts an plus pole in the center pole ... the fa 66 didn't work , when connected by 4 to 4 or 4 to 6 firewire cable . my laptop only has a small 4 pole socket. therefore i suppose that through this 4-pole socket and cable there was no current lead through.
after additionally connecting the fa-66 with mains supply AND 4 to 6 (fa 66 side) cable ... it finally worked. the manufacturer should print all relevant data directly to the fa 66 device near by the socket und also print "FA-66" onto the supply ... because i own lots of alike-looking supplys and it's a drag to find out which ist good for what... ;-)
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.
Could be a bad cable, bad firewire card in computer, or the unit is damaged. Might want to connect the unit to someone else's computer with a new Firewire cable. If this doesn't work, chances are that the unit is defective. I have the same problem right now and I'm having to send the unit back to Presonus. They charge $85 for parts labor and the return shipping. The replace the entire board, so it's like getting a new unit. Hope that helps.
