Camera not recording finished project from computer

Have a macbookpro and use FinalCutPro 6.0.2. I am trying to print to video but am not having luck. The camera is communicating with the computer, I have it set on VTR mode, but when I press "begin record automatically", it starts up the camera but does not record anything onto the tape. Any ideas?
All best, Gabriella

When I try to scan it says no application associated with this event. I've reloaded the scan program and rebooted the computer but no luck.


Hi,
I have a CanoScan9900F and I never had any problem before. I have a MacBookPro with MacOSX and I use CanoScanToolbox when I want to scan.Never had any problems but all in a sudden I get message:
"Cannot communicate with scanner. Cable may be disconnected. Check Status. Scanner driver will be closed."
I tried a different USB-cable, but no result. My worries are that the scanner is broken. As I recall it, the scanner used to make a short "scan" sound when the electric cord is pluged in. What do you think or suggest? Please help me out?
Best Regards Tess

I need to know what kind of apple computer i need to transfer video from the panasonic for editing? I currently have an apple iMac and panasonic is telling me i need a macbookpro.


I think all the new apples will do, if you are worried take your camcorder to an apple store or future shop or other retailer and they should let you connect to a shop machine and try.

I can't video call on skype with my quickcam communicate Mp s5500


Have you tried to add your camera in Skype's video settings? If yes, try to exit your Logitech software and then check if it's working. Hope you'll fix it. Good Luck!

I plug in my USB cable to my camera, and to my PowerBook G4 Mac. Nothing comes up. I try going to playback on my camera, and then plugging it in. It says:Easy print start, or pc/custom print. I don't know...


Make sure the camera is on and pc is selected on the camera screen when connected to the computer. You will need to have PC highlighted and select ok on the camera as this starts the camera and computer to communicate. Once communication established the LCD screen of the camera goes dark and the computer should generate a removable disk drive or Untitled Drive. The camera uses the driver usbstor.

Can I send data from the Handycam DCR-DVD105 to my macbookpro???


Hi!
Unfortunately, your camera does not have a USB jack, and does not have any way to transfer digital data from the disc to your Macbook.
I'd suggest loading your disc to a computer with a non-slot loading dvd drive, download your footage there, and either burning the data to a regular-sized dvd or putting the data in a flash drive to transfer it to you Macbook.
Hope this helps!

MY JVC GY-HD100 Wont capture properly in Final Cut Pro. Always shows time code breaks where there are none. Only capture a minute or two at a time. What can I Do?


Are you shooting 24p? Make sure you're using the correct capture presets. DV NTSC 48k 24Pa (presuming you're shooting 24p advanced)
if this doesn't help, close final cut and delete your com.apple.finalcutpro.plist file from library>preferences. This should solve additional cadence problems.
