Maxtor 1Touch4 won't connect

Hello,  I've ben editing with the Max4 tower ext drive since May with no problems. Suddenly, my FCP began freezing during playback and upon relaunching (after having to Force Quit) the icon doesn't appear and FCP alerts me with a "scratch disk is missing" message.
I've tried the usual restart-shut down-unplug/replug-reboot quick-fix, but no dice.  So...how do I get it back?  And is all my data lost?
HELP!

FIXYA! Hey, found out my maxtor issue...pretty much by accident though, with a little pinch of desperation. I powered down my MacBook, disconnected the drives (2) from their firewire and power and waited for about, oh, I dunno....30-40 seconds. Upon stubborn study of the power supply, something told me to just switch one adapter for the other!

So...I did it. Once plugged back in to my power strip, both LED's lit up and stayed continuous. Then, I just reconnected their firewire ports and, voila!...I was back online. Hate to think all that stress was just a matter of swapping power cords...but...here I am.

Hope that helps someone else.

Hi I have a quick question. after I have been downloading my pictures from my camera to computer, I am not able to edit them or download them onto any websites. is this an error w/my camera or computer?


You did not state which computer or software you are using to edit your video, bu the general consensus is the raw footage has to be "unwrapped" from its compressed form (video gets compressed to fit on SD card) so that it can be editable with your software. Otherwise, editing the footage will be difficult. I use a Mac and FCP. My workflow is - after moving the files from my SD Card to my ext. hard drive, I batch load them into MPEG Streamclip (free software for PC and Mac). Then I choose Apple ProRes 422 (LT) to transcode my raw footage. After waiting for the process to finish (minutes to hours, depending on how many files you batch load), I import my files into FCP and everything works great. No more issues. Also, if you are working on a Mac, iMovie will accept your Rebel.mov files without issue. iMovie unwraps the footage with the Apple Intermediate Codec automatically and editing in iMovie is so simple that it makes me want to smack myself for not trying it sooner after editing on FCP for the last 10 years.......

50p/60p Converter-Transcode CX360 MTS to ProRes for FCP X Editing


Merge/Edit Sony CX360V 1920x1080 50p/60p AVCHD to ProRes 422(HQ)(*mov) on FCP X with Highest quality <br /><br />I used Sony HDR-CX360V to record 1920x1080 50p/60p AVCHD MTS files, which are not compatible with FCP X. So in order to edit the movies on FCP X, conversion from <b><a href="http://www.aunsoft.com/final-mate-mac/">MTS in 50/60 progressive mode to ProRes</a></b> is necessary. <br /><br />I've tried Clipwrap, Toast and Aunsoft to carry out the conversion. Clipwrap failed because it cannot export 50/60 progressive mode; Toast completed converting but the quality is badly affected. <br /><br />Only Aunsoft Final Mate for Mac successfully converted the 50p/60p MTS to ProRes 422 with no loss of quality. I really want to say that it is the best software to <b>Transcode Sony HDR-CX360V 1920x1080 50p/60p AVCHD MTS footage for FCP X</b> that I've ever used. <br /><br />Here is the step-by-step guide to quickly <b><a href="http://canon-videoconverter.com/2011/07/transcode-sony-cx360-50p60p-avchd-mts-footage-to-prores-422-hq-for-fcp-x-editing/">Convert/Edit Sony CX360 50p/60p MTS to ProRes 422 (*.mov) on FCP X</a></b>. <br /><br />1. Importing 50p/60p AVCHD MTS files to Aunsoft Final Mate for Mac <br />Use a USB cable to Connect Sony HDR-CX360V to Mac. Follow the popup window and wizard to complete the import. <br /><br />2. <b>Merging and converting 50p/60p AVCHD MTS files</b> to what you want. <br />After the MTS movies are imported, select one or several videos you would like to convert and then drag and drop them to Movies tab. You can choose the files to be joined as one whole, or create a single movie for each file. Then click the "set parameter" button. Choose Apple ProRes 422(HQ) (*.mov) under Final Cut Pro as its output format and choose "50" (or 60) for the frame rate. <br /><br />3. Export Apple ProRes 422(HQ) for editing on FCP X <br />After setting the output format and frame rate, click the "Export" button and conversion from <b>1920x1080</b> 50p/60p AVCHD MTS files to Apple ProRes 422(HQ)(*mov) starts. <br /><br />After the conversion is completed, <b><a href="http://www.aunsoft.com/final-mate-mac/">Import and Edit ProRes 422 (HQ) on FCP X</a></b>. <br /><br /><b>Tips:</b> <br />If you want to join/merge Sony HDR-CX360V AVCHD MTS clips and <b>play on WDTV Live with original quality</b>, you can use Aunsoft Final Mate to import MTS files and flawlessly export MKV without transcoding.

Solution to Import AVCHD to FCP 7 from External Hard Drive <br />Get AVCHD files 1080i and 1080p editable on FCP-Transcode MTS/M2TS to ProRes <br /> <br /><br />I have many HD videos on my external hard drive for playback on the networked media player, Popcorn Hour. The files are in .mts format from different camcorders, Canon HF R20, Lumix TZ7 and Panasonic HDC-HS700. I would like to import them to Final Cut Pro 7 to make a DVD as present. <br /><br />Even though it is said that FCP supports the AVCHD files from the AVCHD folder structure, I could not get it work via Log & Transfer. When looking for the solution to import <b><a href="http://www.aunsoft.com/final-mate-mac/">AVCHD to FCP from External Hard Drive</a></b>, I notice that the problem might be related to the 1080/60p files from HS700. But I could not easy identify which file for 1080i or which for 1080p now. The only solution for me now is to <b>convert AVCHD to Apple ProRes 422 HQ for editing in FCP 7</b>. Aunsoft Final Mate for Mac is the recommended <b>AVCHD to FCP helper on Mac</b>, and it works perfectly with my HD videos. <br /><br />Hope the below simple steps would help you <b><a href="http://sony-mts-converter.com/2011/06/get-avchd-files-1080i-and-1080p-editable-on-fcp-transcode-mtsm2ts-to-prores/">Get AVCHD files 1080i and 1080p editable on FCP</a></b>. <br /><br />Step 1.

If you want to join and merge the files, choose "Create A Single Movie". If you would like to leave the joining process to FCP, just choose "Create A Movie for Each File". <br /> <br />Step 3. Choose Apple ProRes 422 HQ for FCP 7. <br />Click the Export button, and go to the 3rd tab, then you can choose Final Cut Pro &gt; Apple ProRes 422 (HQ) as the output format for FCP 7. Set the output video size as 1920x1080. <br /> <br />Click the OK button, and the <b>AVCHD MTS/M2TS to ProRes transcoder</b> will <b><a href="http://www.aunsoft.com/final-mate-mac/">convert AVCHD footage to Apple ProRes for HD editing</a></b>. <br /><br />Wait for the conversion, and then you can <b><a href="http://www.aunsoft.com/final-mate-mac/">Edit HD videos on FCP 7</a></b> by choosing File &gt; Import &gt; Files. <br /><br /><b>Tips:</b> <br />1.

Connected 20V laptop power supply to 1touch4 by accident. Now with its own 12v pwr supply connected, it just flashes and HD does not spin up. Pulled it apart and nothing obviously fried. Any suggestions?


The electronics has been damaged and the cost of repair may be high even if you can find an electronic repairer.
I suggest you put your money towards a new USB hard drive as 1Tb hard drives are less than $100.
