    Thanks for the suggestion, I am a 20 year IT Professional so I am aware of this. The problem has to be something else.

How long have you owned the unit? Does the computer recognize the device at all that it is even plugged in? It sounds like an internal problem most likely is the reason for it not being able to be recognized and it should be sent in for repair as there is nothing you would want to user service. But it also could still be something software related so if the device is recognized at all, if you go to device manager in windows you should see the device there. Are you trying to use pro tools with the device? Here is a forum post about almost the same issue. Being that this device is quite complicated, I would post on the M-audio forum. They have very good support and will be able to assist you quickly in getting this issue resolved.

The operating systems will recognize the devices only if they are PnP, ie, plug and play. Meaning, their drivers have already been written into Windows or mac. Else, you should install them from the CD that came with the device. Use the following link to install the drivers:

Can you try hooking it up to a different Mac?
We need to figure out if the problem is with the Mac or the unit itself ;)

After adding my Go Flex Pro to my Mac the computer froze up and won't allow me to do anything. I can't get on anything. Was wondering what to do?????


Dear Vic, didyou try to reboot the Mac? Disconnect the drive and reboot. If that works tryto plug the drive again. If the Mac doesn't freeze try these next steps: There's a 3step solution for your problem: 1. Download this software from Seagate:http://www.seagate.com/ww/v/index.jsp?locale=en-US&name=goflex-mac-install-software&vgnextoid=77002a... 2. If this software cannot create alink or communicate with the device, turn off your Mac and if you have anavailable pc try with it. If the drive works at the PC, Then is a compatibilty issue
3. Seagate report some compatibility problemswith this drive. If it is under warranty, ask for reimburse and choose anexternal HDD that has firewire 400, if your Mac is a recent model (2010-2011)you can buy an external drive with 800 firewire. If have doubt about the firewire option, lookfor about this Mac button and then press more info button, there you will findthat information.

Hello,
This device is made for windows 95- Vista. There are no officially supported windows 7 drivers yet so if you are running windows 7 you may run into issues. The unit draws power from your USB port and will not work as good if plugged into a passive USB hub so make sure to plug it directly into a USB 2.0 port on your PC / MAC.
I suggest downloading the latest drivers from the internet as the CD drivers pay be outdated.

  • Verify that the power outlet you're using is good and your power cable is firmly connected to the wall outlet-if using a surge protector, be sure that it's firmly plugged into the wall outlet. Also, try temporarily plugging directly into the wall outlet to eliminate any issue with the surge protector; plug a different electronic device into the same wall socket to make sure the socket works, and also try the iMac's power cable in a different wall outlet.
  • Make sure the computer's power cable is firmly connected to the computer.
  • If any external devices are connected to your iMac, disconnect them and try to turn the computer on again. If the iMac will power up when those devices are removed, but not when they are connected, contact the manufacturer of those devices for assistance.
  • Try resetting the iMac's SMC
  • Remove and reinstall the SO-DIMM memory modules, located in the bottom of the computer.
  • Resetting the SMC for Mac Pro, Intel-based iMac, Intel-based Mac mini, or Intel-based Xserve

    1. Shut down the computer.
    2. Unplug the computer's power cord.
    3. Press and hold the power button for 5 seconds.
    4. Release the power button.
    5. Attach the computers power cable.
    6. Press the power button to turn on the computer.

IMovie 09 / Mac OS X will not recognise Sony DCR-HC35 via firewire or USB? Do I need to download the correct driver?


mac doesn't support usb streaming so that leaves us with firewire. it should be a plug-and-play connection. no need to install any kind of driver for the camcorder (but try to check if there are any available driver updates for the firewire card).if possible try to check if your computer firewire port is working by using other devices.your imovie software should detect the camcorder once connected.if not, disconnect cam, open imovie, and connect again.if still doesnt,RESET camcorder.if still the same try restarting computer with cam connected and powered on.check if you have a dv in indicator on your screen.check if firewire cable connection is secured.try diff ilink cable if available.if still no go, try a diff computer. if everything fails might also be a service issue.hope this helps.tnx:)

There exist a number of methods for dealing with FireWire device interference, a few of which are explored here. Switching Ports The first procedure you should try when experiencing a problem that you believe to be caused by device interference is to simply reconfigure the arrangement in which your FireWire peripherals are connected. Try switching each device to a different port, or temporarily disconnecting one or more of the devices. In particular, if you are a PowerMac G5 owner, trying switching devices from the front to back ports or vice versa. Adding an external hub In some cases, it appears that FireWire devices are not drawing enough power from the computer. This can cause a sundry of strange issues, including apparent conflicts between devices and unexpected power-offs during device operation. In these instances, adding an externally powered FireWire hub can clear things up. One of the reasons an "under-powered" situation can occur is that different Mac models have varying power capacities available through their FireWire ports. PowerBooks and iBooks have the least, generating around 7 watts. The iMac G5 also generates a relatively low amount of FireWire power, sharing 8 watts between its two FireWire 400 ports. The Power Mac G5 shares 15 watts between its one FireWire 800 port and two FireWire 400 ports. Place devices on different FireWire busses/Isolate the iSight Similar to the above procedure, adding another FireWire bridge -- via an extra PCI-based FireWire adapter or another means -- can eliminate conflicts from devices that reside on the same bridge. Power cycling the system Simply cycling the power on your system may be enough to temporarily eliminate a few FireWire conflict issues. Shut down your Mac, and disconnect all FireWire devices as well as the computer's power cord. Leave the system off for about 10 minutes, then plug it back in. First turn your Mac back on, then re-attach the FireWire devices one at a time and check for the conflict to resurface. Disconnect specific FireWire devices (especially iSight) to check for conflicts As noted above, the most common cause of interference is Apple's own iSight. In case after case, simply disconnecting this single device has eliminated problems with other FireWire devices. Other devices often implicated in FireWire conflicts include video-related devices; cameras, the EyeTV, video decks, etc.
Disconnecting the iSight has proved particularly successful for an issue where the iPod disappears from the Desktop and from the iTunes playlist, while the iPod status screen cycles from the Apple logo to a "Do not Disconnect" message over and over. The exact reasons why the iSight causes more than its fair share conflicts with other FireWire devices are many, and sometimes unclear. One potential source of conflict, however, could be the unit's high bandwidth usage. The iSight captures video at a 640 x 480 pixel resolution, at 30 frames per second in millions of colors. Such throughput uses a significant chunk of the standard FireWire port's 400 Mbps bandwidth. As such, when other devices are connected, the bandwidth requirements for satisfactory performance may not be met. Try disconnecting all FireWire devices, then adding them back one by one and repeating the originally failed operation to check for conflicts. Apply the latest updates Make sure that your FireWire drives are using the latest firmware (check the manufacturers' Web site) and the most recent iPod update has also been applied. Of higher importance, if you have an iSight, is the iSight 1.0.2 updater. In a large number of cases it has resolved conflicts caused by the camera. Re-apply the most recent Mac OS X combo updater In some cases, re-applying the most recent combo updater can resurrect seemingly defunct FireWire ports and allow devices -- drives included -- to be recognized again. The most recent combo updater is available from Apple's download page. Clear caches Try using a tool like Tiger Cache Cleaner or Cocktail to remove potentially corrupt system caches. Restart, then check if your FireWire devices are recognized.

Panasonic PV-GS35 will not connect to iMac, so can't upload video from mini DV cassettes into iMovie. when I connect with my USB cable, nothing shows up on the iMac saying that the camera or a "N0_NAME"...


So if it's miniDV and you have a firewire cable, it should work. Have you followed this sequence:
If your battery is sufficiently charged to run the cam for an hour's worth of tape, fine, otherwise connect cam to AC power. With cam OFF, connect Firewire cable to Mac and cam. Open iMovie, name your project and create so that the viewer screen comes up. Turn on the cam. At this point, your Mac should, within moments, say "camera connected". Cam needs to be set on "playback" mode for capture. Then click "import" button and your Mac will control the cam.

If you still get a "no camera connected" you have to consider the possibility that either the firewire cable is bad or the firewire port on cam or Mac is bad. If you have more than one firewire port on your Mac, try switching. An Apple store should be able to help you determine if you have a bad cable or cam port, if you take both in to try on their Mac. Hope this gets you on track.

Sony DCR-HC52E connected with Firewire not detected in moviemaker


The Camcorder will flash the DV IN message as soon as the i.LINK/Firewire cable is connected to the Camcorder.

If you are getting the DV IN message then it indicates that the Camcorder recognize the connection.

You can use any video capturing software like Windows Movie Maker to transfer the video from the Computer.

Refer this link for the instruction to transfer the video to the Computer using i.LINK cable.

http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/documentLink.do?externalId=C111893

If you are not getting the DV IN message as soon as the i.LINK cable is connected with the Camcorder then the issue may be with either the Camcorder or with the i.LINK cable.

Try resetting the Camcorder or try with different i.LINK cable. Locate the RESET button behind the LCD screen of the Camcorder. (You will be able to locate the RESET button by opening the LCD Screen. The Camcorder should be switched ON when you reset the unit. Press the RESET button using a sharp-pointed object).

NOTE: Resetting the Camcorder will reset the settings of the Camcorder to the factory settings including date and time. It will not delete any data saved in the Camcorder.

If the issue still persists after resetting the Camcorder and with different i.LINK cable then your Camcorder requires service to resolve the issue.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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.

Sounds like your Camera is not mounting the first thing I would try is unplugging all USB devices if it USB or all Firewire devices if it is Firewire and try it. Try a different port. Try a different Cable.

M-audio firewire solo


I just bought the Firewire Solo and had the same issue with my MacBook. I have OSX 10.5.6. The drivers that came on the CD were for earlier OSX version. If you go to M-Audio's website (www.m-audio.com) and then click on Support. Go to to drivers & updates, search by the criteria they give you for your specific system and then download. Although they don't currently have an updated version for 10.5.6, I downloaded 10.5.5 and it seems to be working, although I'm running into an audio input problem when hooking up mic and guitar....no sound. I'm thinking I'll just have to wait until M-Audio comes out for an updated version for 10.5.6. Hope this helps.
