Question about LaCie Big Disk External USB 2.0 1TB Hard Drive

1 Answer

Is the hard drive on its way out? What should I do?

I have a power mac G-5, I capture video w/ Final cut pro to my lacie, it worked fine for about 8 months until 4 days ago when it suddenly started unmounting and freezing, also caused FCP and other programs to freez. The only thing that was done differently was, I pull files from a USB flash disk.

Macbook pro does not find canopus acdv110


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.

Import MTS to Final Cut Pro X-Convert Sony PJ30V 60p MTS to H.264 MOV for...


The Sony PJ30V has more compression options than your average camcorder. Most of its video is recorded using AVCHD compression, which is today's industry standard. The HDR-PJ30V has 32GB of internal flash memory and it can record Full HD video using 60p, 60i, or 24p frame rates. The PJ30V comes with the same version of Picture Motion Browser (PMB) software that shipped with the Sony HDR-CX700V, which we reviewed earlier this year. The new version of the software is nearly identical to previous versions of PMB, except version 5.5 does allow you to import and work with 60p and 24p clips (something that is essential for the HDR-PJ30V). One big downside, we noticed in terms of editing, is that the 60p clips recorded by the PJ30V don't always play nice with mac editing software. Final Cut Pro version 5.0, for example. And Now <b>Final Cut Pro X</b> is available could be Downloaded from the Mac App Store. However <b>Log and Transfer was removed</b> in the X version of Final Cut.

Lacie drive won't mount


I solved the problem. It was a power supply problem. It seems after searching boards on the net, this is a common problem with the lacie hard drives. Just replace the power if your hard drive is clicking and not mounting. I think many people must be throwing the drives away thinking they are lost when it is just the power supply. Try this first before trashing it or spending a lot of money on data recovery programs/
