Hi!

Seems like your MAC goes into sleep mode, when this happens, the computer does not supply power to the USB ports to save power. When the computer does this, there is a big change that will drain out the battery of the Reader. You can try this:

1. Connect the reader to the computer
2. Hit the reset button while is connected for 3 seconds (Reset is located at the bottom of the unit)
3. Leave the reader charging for about 40 minutes then disconnect the reader and check the battery meter
4. If you can see that the reader took some charge then leave it connected for 2 hours or until the redlight goes off

Good Luck!

Three possibilities:

3. Bad cord
All three of these can be purchased and replaced.

Chances are your phone got too hot during the night and overcharged the Lithium Ion battery. If those batteries are exposed to too much heat then they won't have the battery life they used to have. You need to purchase a replacement battery or contact your wireless carrier to see about getting another one.

Hi marinaherman,

Probably the computer went into sleep mode while charging overnight. Try the follwing

1. Connect the reader to the computer
2. Make sure the redlight comes on
3. If the light does not come on, hit the reset while reader is connected to the computer
4. Leave the reader charging for about 15-30 minutes
5. Check if reader unfroze and check battery metter

Hope this resolves the problem

Turn off actomatically, cannot turn on so far.


Your battery may be too low to allow charging it and "starting" your computer at rhe same time.

Remove the battery and clean the contacts on the battery and the laptop.
1. Plug in the laptop power adapter with no battery in the laptop.
2. Turn ON computer. It should stay turned on.
3. After Windows settles, insert battery.
4. The computer will stay powered on.
5. Allow to charge.

Mac compatibility


It is compatible, but it may cost you 20 more dollars

iMovie does not work with muxed MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 clips (and that's what you're trying to do)

http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=42996

You'll need:
MPEG Streamclip 1.5.1 (free) and the MPEG-2 Playback Component ($20 from Apple).
http://www.alfanet.it/squared5/mpegstreamclip.html
http://www.apple.com/quicktime/mpeg2/

Once you do that, to transfer the data to the iMac:
1- Plug the USB cable, once detected (5s), press HDD on the touch screen panel
2- Go to Finder (on the Mac) then open the videos folder /MP_ROOT/100PNV01/M2U0001.MPG for example
3- Drag the .MPG file to the mac
4- Start Streamclip (see message further up the discussion)
Export using for example .DV format, readable by I-Movie.
5-Import the new file in I-movie
