Question about Sony DSR-11 DV / Mini DV VCR
I have an Intel Core Duo iMac. I borrowed my school's Sony DSR-11 tape deck to import some of my MiniDV tapes into iMovie. The tape deck is not recognizing that anything is on my tapes - there isn't any footage or timecode showing on my computer. I'm pretty sure that the problem is with the tape deck - I've tried two Firewire cables and four different tapes, and I've tried importing it into Final Cut Pro as well as iMovie - none of this worked. My teacher told me something about the Firewire ports blowing out if you connect the DSR-11 improperly, but I followed the instructions on the box and my computer is recognizing the DSR-11 as an external device, and it's recognizing my tapes - it's just not showing anything on them.
I think you may have misconfigured something because the problem is not in your DSR-11 try connecting it to a monitor and you will see the time stamp and picture as proof of what I am saying. The problem I think is that your Mac is not processing the time stamp correctly. Try this link first it helped me: Remember follow the instructions ezactly: http://forums.creativecow.net/readpost/35/856108
