To transfer camcorder video to computer, you need the following:- 1. Firewire cable (it looks similar to the USB cable, but has very high speed capability) 2. Appropriate software/application. If a firewire cable did not come with your camcorder then see that purchase one right away, ‘cause you will always need it for this purpose. Then you should have a video editing software like Adobe Premiere or Ulead installed on your system. Adobe Premiere is recommended for its speed. Once you have these in place, all you need do is connect the camcorder to your computer via firewire, have your video editing application/program open, and simply playback. You will observe that the playback on the camcorder is at the same time being shown on the computer screen within the application. While the mini DV tape is playing back click on capture on the video editing application you are doing the playback from, i.e. Adobe Premiere, Ulead etc.
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.
You cannot play SVHS tapes on a standard VHS machine. Your solution is to either: 1. Buy an SVHS Home unit (not a great idea) 2. Use regular VHSC tapes in your camcorder (these will playback fine in your existing home unit). 3. Hook your camcorder directly into your TV and use the camera as a playback device.
if you plug & unplug cable after turning off ,perhaps you can the conector firewire on the vcr inside there are 4 yellow cables if not the conector defect.try to push the cable firewire litle up down side just to make sure
if you are capturein through the fire wire port, it could be either the port is bad or the cable ha abad connection in it. try using a different cablr first, if that does not fix it, then it must be the firewire port. just to make sure, see if you can get ahold of a "Blue Box" one of those analog to firewire converter boxes, and see if it comes out clear then. if it does then I am 100% sure that it is the firewire port.
Hello have you disabled all the built on sound cards on your computers? This is a known problem. If you are going to use a great product like M-audio disable any onboard audio card. Then try to use the 410 system. If you still have the problem try changing the latency to 4-5
