Firestore FS-4 no longer recognized as external drive by Macs

Mac computers running OS X 10.4.11 are no longer recognizing Firestore FS-4 DV Recorder as a drive when it's hooked up via firewire cable. We used the repair disk utility on the Firestore and reformatted the drive, but it did not help.

SD card format ng no card


  • 1 Insert your SanDisk 8GB memory card into a card reader connected to your computer.
  • 2 Double-click "Macintosh HD" on your desktop.
  • 3 Click on the "Applications" folder, then the "Utilities" folder.
    4 Double-click "Disk Utility". Look on the left side to locate the drive that says "SanDisk.
    5 Select the capacity of the drive on the left side of the window. The capacity will state "8GB" or "8,388,608 kilobytes." Click on the "Erase" tab to format the memory card. When you see "SanDisk" listed as the device's name, the capacity will be located above. You need to select the capacity and not the device.
    6 Select the appropriate "Volume Format." Under the "Volume Format" button, select the format you wish to use. Select "Mac OS Extended" if the SanDisk 8GB will only be used on Macs, or "MS-DOS (FAT)" if you will share the card between a Mac and PC. Select "Erase" to complete the format of your SanDisk 8GB memory card.

    Advice was given to me to buy firewire cable as my sony handycam DCR-TRV22E wont recognize by my mac OS X ver. 10.6.6? what type of firewire shld i buy?


    I'm glad to provide the information about the required firewire cable.
    All Sony Camcorders are having 4 pin firewire/i.LINK port.
    You can purchase a Firewire cable depends upon the number of pins available on the firewire port on the Computer.
    If you have 4 pin firewire port in the Computer, you can purchase a 4 to 4 pin Firewire cable.
    If you have 6 pin Firewire port in your Computer, you can purchase 4 to 6 pin i.LINK cable.
    In rare cases, it may also 4 to 9 pin.
    Please refer the manual of your computer or contact apple to get the information about the number of pins available on the Computer.
    You may also get back to me with the model # of the Computer so that I might be able to check the pin information.
    Thanks for understanding.
    If you need any further assistance, please let me know..

    Cannot download video, only Card pictures


    I do not know MACs, but a standard 4-pin to 6-pin firewire (IEEE1394) is needed. On Windows XP, plug it in, run Windows Movemaker and you are good to go. By the way, a "DV cable" is a firewire cable.

    If your MAC cannot "see" your camcorder, try another firewire device to see if your MAC is the culprit, or drag your camcorder and firewire cable to a friend's PC running Windows XP and see if it works.

    Can't download video to macintosh from the canon zr100


    Unfortunately, it looks as if you may have one of the macs that just doesn't want to co-operate. If the FW cable is brand new, i highly doubt you've got a defective cable. After doing a Google search, Canon knows of this problem and hasn't offered any real support or a solution. I could only assume it's the camcorder and not the mac. Give me another day or so and I'll get back to ya, I'll see if I can borrow my friends camcorder and try to get it to work on one of my other macs. 
    In the meantime, try opening imovie , connect the camcorder while it's off, turn it on and set up imovie as if you were about to capture ntsc footage. Next play the tape in the camcorder and see if imovie recognizes it then.

    My Mac does not recognize my Canon HV 30 DV when i connect the FireWire.


    I've been around the block with this for days, including a fresh installation of the software on my MacBook Pro. Sigh.

    Here's what seemed to work:

    1) Reset Vixia HV30 (tiny reset button behind the battery). Did not change any settings on the camera after that.

    2) Installed Canon's software that dropped some canon-related files in Library/Quicktime folder.

    3) Opened new iMovie 6.0.3 and Final Cut Express HD 3.5.1 projects (a) FCE (using Easy Setup in FCE) to Apple Intermediate Codec 1080i60 (b) iMovie 'HDV 1080i'.

    4) Connected 4-pin --> 6-pin firewire cable out of the camera to a bus-powered external drive and from the drive, firewire 800 --> firewire 800 --> MacBook Pro 10.5.8.

    This was a last-ditch, Hail Mary effort. It worked, and the camera showed up in the System Profiler firewire window, too, whereas it had not before all of the above. Still does not show up when hooked directly from the camera to the FW 800 input, but at least I can capture now.

    Transfering video to Mac


    I believe that camera only works with firewire. You might want to check with Canon to see if there is compatibility problems with Macs. I know it works on Windows computers.
