Question about Pinnacle Video Transfer

Pinnacle Video Transfer: at REC, all lights turn red--except USB

After waiting for all lights to turn blue, I press REC to start recording. All lights are turn red, except the USB which continues lit up in blue--where it is connected to my thumb drive. Recording does not happen. This happens 8 out of 10 times.

Odd thing was, the RCA areas used to turn red first before blue, but now it lights up blue immediately without red. Have tried to reset to factory setting; does not help. Update firmware? Tried that. The PVT does not even power up itself after plugging power cord and USB.

Sigh, how can a product like this generate so much news and release? Too unstable.

    Rod,
    Many thanks for taking the time to help out.

    How do I "delete" the software of the PVT, since it neither boots up automatically when I was trying to update the firmware; it does not have any interface for delete function.

How about deleting all the software of that device and reinstalling it as a new device.

the program may have corrupted the flash drive and all the data that is on it and when you pluged into any other device it may of worked a few time but that it will start corrupting everything you have plugin your flash drive into.

you are going to reformat the flash drive and re install any type of drivers for the flash drive and check every where you have used the flash drive has not corrupt any of the systems you are using.

let hope we got it before you loose your intire system due to corrupted software downloads or uploads to flash drive and computer system and this may include a network if you are on one.

When i put a tape in it ejects it..then a tape with a slash appears on the screen


you are prohibited from recording on thips tape. This is because the red tab on the side of the tape that faces you when you are inserting the tape inside the camera has been put in 'SAVE' position . to be able to record o the tape you need to use your fingernail to slide the red tab to the 'REC' position.

Ive extracted the following article for you from wilkepedia to help you understand this issue:
Tape and recording protection
250px-8mm_cassette_erase_tab.jpg magnify-clip.pngThe write-protect switch (right) prevents accidental erasure. .
To prevent the recording on the tape from being erased, there is a small write-protect tab that can be moved to one of two positions, labeled "REC" and "SAVE". Comparing the sliding tab to a door, the tape is in the "REC" position is when the "door" is open and the "SAVE" position when it is closed. (Not all tape cases have markings for this information!) The tape can only be recorded on (or recorded over) when this tab is in the "REC" position. This is an improved version of the VHS write-protect tab, which prevents erasure after it has been (permanently) broken off.

All LEDs are in constant switched on state(BLUE)


When you plug in the source device and the output device, all of the LEDs light blue, letting you know that the device is ready to capture. When you are ready to capture, simply press the play button on your source device, the Rec button on the Video Transfer, and the LEDs light red, both on the source side and the output side, letting you know that a recording is in process. To stop recording, press and hold the record button and when the lights turn blue, recording has stopped.

Recording


The EDSR1600 will not go into manual recording mode (by pressing the REC button on the front panel) unless all of the automatic modes are disabled and the hard drive bays are firmly pressed in and locked. Press the MENU button, select ALARM and turn everything in the OPeration column to OFF. Return to the MENU, select MOTION and also turn set all the OPerations to OFF. Return again to the main MENU and under RECORD, set ALARM RECORD OPERATION to OFF, PRE-ALARM RECORD OPERATION to OFF, and PERMANENT RECORD OPERATION to OFF. Note: Turn the JOG wheel clockwise or counter-clockwise to select an option. Press the ENTER button to confirm the option and move to the next field. Press the MENU button to enter, or return to the main MENU. Press the MENU button twice to exit the main MENU. To check if the round key locks on the front of the Hard Drive bay trays are locked, turn OFF the EDSR1600. Open (pull down) the left side front cover and gently pull up on the drive bay handles. If locked, the handles should not lift and the bays should not slide out. After your check, press the bays in firmly to ensure good seating of the Hard Drives. The ESDR1600 should now go into manual RECord if the DVR is working properly. The red REC LED should also light each time a recording is being made. If the REC LED flashes, this means the DVR is recording a field or frame of video.
