Firestore FS-4 pro Audio sync problems

After transferring video recorded on my FS-4, audio does not sync up in Final Cut Pro. Is this a drop frame/non-drop frame problem? I can't get it all to come together.

SOURCE: Get Final Cut Pro 5.04 to communicate with my XH A1

Many HDV cameras and decks are able to play and record DV as well as the higher-resolution HDV format. Additionally, many of these HDV devices will attempt to automatically change their settings to match the format of the tape that it's playing. Here are some tips for using these types of devices with Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express.
Tip: Make explicit settings on your HDV device. Instead of using an "Auto" setting, make your own settings on your HDV device to keep the communication going between it and Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express. This also helps Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express keep things running smoothly with HDV devices that handle both DV-NTSC and DV-PAL.
For example, say you're using an HDV deck to capture footage from a tape that was recorded as DV-NTSC. Before capturing in Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express, make sure that you set the deck to DV mode specifically—don't rely on Auto mode. With some devices, you may need to disconnect it from FireWire to change the mode.
For a common capture workflow, this sequence of steps can provide the best results:

  1. Quit Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express if it's open.
  2. Insert your tape into your HDV deck or camcorder.
  3. Use the device's menus to set it to match the format that's recorded on the tape.
  4. Connect your HDV device to your computer with a FireWire cable.
  5. Open Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express.
  6. Choose an Easy Setup for DV or HDV (whichever matches the format recorded on your tape).
  7. Proceed to Log and Capture.
Tip: Quit Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express before changing modes. It's generally a good idea to quit Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express before you change the mode on your device from DV to HDV, or from HDV to DV, and then re-open the application again.
Tip: Use an Easy Setup to play back non-default HDV format footage on your HDV device. You can use Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express to make your HDV device play back footage in its non-default HDV format. For example, maybe you have a 1080i60 HDV device and want to play back footage that was recorded as 1080i50. Or perhaps you have a 1808i50 HDV device and you want to play back footage that was recorded as 1080i60. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Connect your camera to your computer.
  2. In Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express, choose an HDV preset Easy Setup that matches the format of the tape's footage (you don't need to restart Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express).
  3. Your device's LCD display should automatically display a switch to 60 or 50, indicating the type of media that's being played.
Playing back non-default DV format footage on your HDV device You can also use your HDV device to play back footage in its non-default DV format too. For example, maybe you have a 1080i60 HDV device and want to play back footage that was recorded as DV-PAL. Or maybe you have a 1080i50 HDV device and want to play back footage that was recorded as DV-NTSC. If so, follow these steps:
  1. Make sure that your device is in DV/DVCAM mode.
  2. Put your device into Play/Pause mode, then open the Log and Capture window in Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express.
  3. Make sure that your device's LCD (or other readout screen) displays the same format as your tape or Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express will misinterpret what type of device you have.
Tip: Avoid recording both HDV and DV formats on the same tape. Use separate tapes whenever you want to record in a different format. If you need to record over existing footage in a different format (for example, you have a tape with DV-PAL on it, but you want to record over it with HDV 1080i50), it's a good idea to black and code the tape, or completely record over the old footage with contiguous recording in the new format. If the tape contains even a second of, say, DV in the middle of an HDV tape (or vice versa), it could cause unexpected results later when you try to capture video from that tape.

Try a factory reset - it will probably fix the problems you're seeing. These are the instructions I got from Focus Enhancements: FACTORY RESET
a. With the Firestore powered OFF.
b. REMOVE the “battery” and connect the “AC Adaptor”.
c. Press and HOLD down the "ON” and “OFF” buttons for 15' seconds, then release just the “ON” Button.
d. Count to five (5) then release the “OFF” button.
e. The Firestore should be powering back up to the home screen.
(It takes the firestores settings back to the normal setup. This "will not" erase any current footage on the drive) (You may have to re-do current update/upgrade version)

SOURCE: Firestore FS-4 does not show up when connected

I own three FS-4 and one of them has the same problem. Two of them connect no problem. The third one says the connection is successful but windows doesn't recognize it. After playing around a bit it appears that I am not getting a good connection with the 6 pin firewire output on the Firestore. I find that with repeated attempts and carefully holding the cable in various positions, I eventually get it (reminds me of analog TV antennas when you have to be in just the right position to get a channel in clearly). The good news is, once it is recognized, it stays recognized until the need for the next download.

So for my unit, I think I simply have a bad jack. Hope this helps.

Palm Pre Plus vs iPhone 3Gs: review and enjoy video or dvd with them


Now that Palm Pre Plus phone has been revealed, the question everyone is asking is how it does compare to the other current top smartphones on the market? Moreover, is it worth switching to Palm Pre Plus from your current device? Now, I have narrowed down my choices to Palm Pre Plus and iPhone 3G S and I’ve had a really tough time choosing between the two:
[img]http://www.nidesoft.com/forum/iphonevspalm/palmpreplusiphone.jpg[/img]
Display
Palm Pre Plus features a 3.1-inch multitouch screen with 24-bit color. Measuring 100.5mm (H) X 59.5mm (W) X 16.95mm (D), the phone offers 320x480 pixel screen resolution.
On the other hand, iPhone 3G S comes with 3.5-inch LCD capacitive touchscreen display with also 320 x 480 pixels. The phone measures 115.5 x 62 x 12.3 mm.
Operating system
iPhone's current model runs on iPhone 3.1 OS. The phone is powered by ARM Cortex A8 processor. Among key features, the upgraded software now lets users cut, copy & paste, a sorely missed feature in the iPhone 2.0. iPhone 3.0 also offers multimedia messaging capability with the new 3.0 software allowing users to send each other photographs from the phone.
Palm Pre Plus run on Palm webOS Platform around web-based information, which is where so much of your life resides. Palm webOS helps you stay connected to all of it, so you don't miss a thing.
Battery life
Apple claims that iPhone 3G S supports up to 12 hours of talk time, 30 hours of audio, 9 hours of Wi-Fi, 10 hours on video playback, and 5 hours of 3G talk time.
According to Palm website, Pro Plus will offer talk time of up to 5.5 hours and standby time of 350 hours. But it is not released video time and audio time.
App Advantage
Apple iPhone App Store iTunes offers people over 90,000 apps. Palm apps have the ability to access and share information with each other, which means they can do more for you. Choose from apps like Facebook, Yelp, LinkedIn, Pandora, NFL SuperFan, and The New York Times. With over 1,000 available and more added each week, chances are you’ll find the ones you want.
Multimedia
Palm Pre Plus offers a 3 megapixel camera (with no auto focus and LED flash). It has build-in flash and multimedia player and supports: MPEG-4, H.263, H.264 etc video formats and MP3, AAC, AAC+, eAAC+, AMR, QCELP, WAV, etc audio formats.
And the third-gen iPhone packs a 3 megapixel camera with video capturing, auto-focus mechanism and editing capabilities. The earlier two versions shipped with only a 2 megapixel camera each. And it also has multimedia player, but supports: MPEG-4, H.263, H.264, M4V&MP4, etc video formats and MP3, AAC, AIFF, WAV, VBR &Apple lossless, etc audio formats.
Both are good multimedia smartphone and support many video and audio formats. But, if you has a AVI file, how to play it with both two smartphone? I get answer from Google search. You may try [url=http://www.nidesoft.com/video-converter.html]Nidesoft Video Converter[/url] which could convert video or audio files between all popular formats to convert AVI file to MPEG-4 format. Detailed process is as follows:
Firstly, you could free download and install Nidesoft Video Converter from: http://www.nidesoft.com/downloads/video-converter.exe.
When you finished the download process, run the .exe file to install it.
Step 1: Click “Add File” button to import your videos from your computer.
[img]http://www.nidesoft.com/forum/google/video-converter-1.jpg[/img]
Tips: Click a file in the list and you could use the preview control buttons to play the file.
Step 2: Click "Format" combo box to select the output format, such as to mp4 for iPhone.
Step 3: Click “Convert” button to start conversion. The conversion will be completed in a short time.
Ok, now you have converted your AVI files to MPEG-4 format files which iPhone 3GS and Palm Pro Plus supports and you may use it more convenient. Another I also find [url=http://www.nidesoft.com/dvd-ripper.html]Nidesoft DVD Ripper[/url] could rip DVD to multimedia phones’ video and music: 3GP, AVI, WMV, MP4, WMA etc. So, it is not a problem to watch your favorite DVD on mobile phone. I think these two Nidesoft software are necessary additional software for mobile phone users.
As for memory
Palm Pre Plus packs 512meg RAM, 16 gigs storage (15GB user available) and support USB mass storage.
Apple's third generation iPhone comes in two memory options, 16GB and 32GB. The phone has 256MB RAM. But iPhone 3GS doesn't have a card slot for further memory expansion, which is a sore point.
Let's talk performance. The short version is that the iPhone 3GS still renders web pages slightly faster and can load 3D games faster - but it can't multitask more than Apple's core apps. The iPhone 3GS edges out the Palm Pre Plus on both the Browser speed test and loading up Need for Speed Undercover. The iPhone also, incidentally, blows the doors off webOS when it comes to the number and quality of available games. But the Palm Pre Plus did some door-blowing of its own - you're able to pause the game and pick up right where you left off because of the card multitasking system. If you like this version of Palm, you may get more information from Palm website.

I had format my Fs-4 Pro HD, and I need that


Hello

My apologies if this message finds you long after posting this problem , but I am currently working through a backlog of problems that never got answered and hopefully this info can still be of use if not now possibly in future.

Please download Disc Digger HERE. This is a free tool you can use that works very well and there is no installation required, just run the program once you downloaded it.

Once you have connected the memory disk / hdd to the computer , run the program.

On the program , select the dig deep option for accidentally deleted files or dig deeper for a formatted drive. Then select the disk you want to do the recovery on and run the program.

The data will be displayed and you can recover it from there. This will only work if the card has not been used since the data was lost. Save the files to a location on the computer hard drive and not back to the disk it is recovering from as this will overwrite the other pictures that still needs to be recovered.

Some of the properties of the files may become lost in the recovery but the pictures should be fine.

You will also only be able to recover certain file types using this method.

Feel free to ask if you need more assistance.

Kind Regards
Andrea
