In Topic: Help, camcorder decided to stop recognize any new hard drives!

09 September 2013 - 06:20 AM

I have managed to use the computer as a pass thru to a new hard hard drive and it seems it will load to i movie or final cut depending on which app is open. If I wait long enough the avcd file comes up and I can copy that over to the hard drive but it is named AVCD and won't play if I try to change the name so the next copy is problematic. I appreciate the help.

Thanks. I have looked at the connections and they are clean, also it works well on "old" hard drives with identical connections.

I am actually direct copying last nights 2 hour some dive to an "old" seagate 1 tb, while it's twin new from store defies any way to get the camcorder to recognize it.


R4e- I will try that, two issues are in the past, the camcorder only loads to the laptop's hard drive, not the connected external hard drive (taking up a huge amount of space) and the weird way the AVCHD is nested I am worried about disturbing or missing part of the image data base making it unrecoverable. I will try with both device connected to the laptop, if I can just get some data from the camera onto the drive the it should start recognizing it without a pass through.

When we first got the LaCie rugged portable hard drive I think we had to reformat it seperately but then it was recognized.  


So weird it has become an issue and Sony service could not offer any ideas on why or how to resolve it provided it still works on the "old" hard drives.....

In Topic: Zen 100 port for Tokina ATX 10-17 causing soft images

Thats what the Ryan of REEF verified as it was the right Zen dome for the 10-17 and lots of them have been sold so it's not an issue with the port (they maintain) but I can't see why it works with the extension ring changing no other settings?
I have to do some pool testing to give them better example pictures of the issue but was wondering if anyone had similar issues or there was a D7000 setting that might be off.

Excellent video and brings back some great memories.
What were shooting it with?
