Question about JVC SR-VS20 Mini DV/S-VHS VCR

1 Answer

Firewire not recognized

Hi I am running a Macbook Pro and in the past have been running a Dual processor G4. In both cases my machine cannot see the deck. I am able to digitize firm my camera, so the culprit is neither the cable nor the Mac.

Please assist,
Thanks!

    Hi, this worked temporarily, thank you! If I fast forwarded a tape manually control would slip, which does not happen when I am using the camera. Having said that, if I did the power off, plug out on both ends, it would work again. Any idea why this is that a hard resetting like that works?

    Thanks,
    LK

Check that the firewire is not burnt because you plugged the camera while it was on, it is very easy to blow.

    Remove battery from mac and umplug from power also unplug the VCR ,
    Keeping VCR off, connect firewire, then turn on first mac and after computer, if it doesnt work you may have burnt the firewire, did you connect it with VCR on?

    Firewire and USB connections may have problems from electrostatic charges, by removing all sources of power you can often fix them, probably this was the case

Macbook pro doesnt recognize the panosonic pv-gs9 when connected with firewire


I take it that your macbook pro has imovie on it. If you open up imovie and plug in your camcorder it should recognise the camcorder and give you access to putting the movie onto your mac. Have a look at http://www.apple.com/support/imovie/ it should help.

    Is your MacBook as fast as the Lacie Rugged Hard Disk is?

    Because solid state drive wasn't available on MacBook Pro at the initial time when it launched. Hard drives on all current Apple laptops are equipped with Sudden Motion Sensor technology. In fact, the Apple laptops that came with Sudden Motion Sensor are: All Intel-based Apple portables such as the MacBook, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, PowerBook G4 computers starting with PowerBook G4 (12-inch 1.5GHz), PowerBook G4 (15-inch 1.67/1.5GHz), PowerBook G4 (17-inch 1.67GHz), and iBook G4 computers starting with iBook G4 (Mid 2005) have Sudden Motion Sensor technology. You MacBook may not have come with that technology that could be the reason you are unable to connect it.

    Firewire problem


    this sounds like you could have blown the firewire port on the mac, this can happen if you plug in and out, even though it is supposed to be hot swappable. if nothing shows up on the firewire port but does show up on other ports on other computers then that could be the problem. its back to base with apple for a repair.

    Macbook pro does not detect digi 002 rack


    yeah i have an intel imac and had the same problem. I upgraded to pt le 7.4 and now pro tools recognizes the 002 rack and it works fine, but still the core audio manager does not recognize the hardware. It says in "use" when I first turn on the 002 rack, then it says not connected after about 20 seconds. I don't think this really matters though because I have beeen able to do everything fine without having the core audio managr recognizing the 002 rack. I hope that helps
