Intel Mac :: Canon GL2 And Belkin 800/400 9-pin To 4-pin Firewire Cable Not Working?
Jul 4, 2012
I have my Canon GL2 connected to my I-Mac OSX version10.7.3 with a Belkin 800/400 9-pin to 4-pin firewire cable and the computer is not acknowledging the camera or firewire cable. Trying to get footage into Final Cut Pro 10 off mini dv tape.
I've bought a Canon camcorder a few months ago and last week I got a MacBook Pro 15" with Final Cut Pro7, now I can start editing my videos but I don't know which FireWire cable I need to buy and use. I've got a MacBook guide with the laptop and I know that my MacBook Pro has a FireWire 800 port but I don't know if FireWire 800 would fit my Canon VVixia HF S10 camcorder's port. I don't know what port does my camcorder even have so that I know which FireWire cable to buy. So can you help me with this? Would the FireWire 800 fit for the Canon Vixia HF S10 or what do I have to do? I know the camcorder came with a USB cable but I don't really want to use that one, since FireWire it's much easier to use with Final Cut Pro7 than USB cable with all the save in Document first then open in FCP7. With FireWire it's easier to log and capture the video.
I got off a friend a Belkin Wireless DSL/Cable 802.11g Router and I use Mac only and tried to connect at all up followed the instructions but when I was asked to put in the url 192.168.2.1 nothing came up and I am stuck there.
I'm using a Late 2010 27" i5 iMac and a Late 2009 15" MacBook Pro. I'm going to reformat and reinstall the iMac this weekend but need to grab all my Music/Documents (you know the drill) from it. Last time I did this, I did it over a 100mbps network, needless to say it was absolutely horribly slow. So, today I'm going to pick up a cheap-ish firewire cable and target my laptop as a disk using target disk mode.
Which type of Firewire cable do I need to buy? It's either a 4-pin or 6-pin choice, no 9-pins available at the shop I intend to visit. I have no idea what the difference is between them - hardware is definitely not my game. Both ports look like this (taken from Apple's docs, Firewire 800):
I have an iMac and a MacBook. The iMac hardrive won't boot so I am trying to get files off of it by connecting it to the MacBook via FireWire. After holding down T and booting up the iMac I don't see the drive on the MacBook. I only see the drive in disk utilities.
I have an old Laserjet IIIp I'm trying to use with a new Mac mini. Before realizing that tiger had gimp-print bundled with it I installed it separately, so maybe that's the problem. Anyway, I use the printer setup utility, and click add, and it shows me a USB printer (without a name, that's odd.) I choose HP and then "Laserjet III Series," and whether I choose the 4.x driver or the 5.x driver, clicking add does nothing. No dialog, no spinning of the disk or the printer, just nothing.I know the driver supports this printer, and I know the cable in question (a Belkin USB->Parallel cable) works with gimp-print and even with this printer. Rebooting the Mac doesn't help, even if the printer is on and connected during the reboot.
I'm looking for a 1 TB external hard drive to connect to a firewire 400 port to use to backup my iMac. So far, the better drives, 7200 rpm, seem only to have usb 3 connectivity or are expensive. Is there an adapter or cable to connect a usb 3 input device to a firewire 400 port?
I just got a Mac Mini (March 2009 model) and want to connect it via Firewire to my Sony TRV-22 camcoder. The camcorder has a Mini DV Firewire jack on it (I think this is called a 4-pin connector sometimes too). But on the Mac Mini, I can't tell if I need a 6-pin or a 9-pin. Can someone point me to a good cable so I can dump some MiniDV tapes into iMovie?
It WAS working. I'd bought an iomega fw drive with usb and fw800 ports. I hooked up the drive and it worked and then suddenly I got the message that a drive had been ejected improperly. The fw800 port never worked again -- with any drive or any cable. My apple care has run out. (I've tried these cables and drives on another computer.
This is not a Canon problem as other computers (PCs) detect the scanner and work fine. This was originally the easiest multi-function printer/scanner setup I ever did.The scanning is easy and worked fine for a couple of months, then several days ago it gave "scanner not available" message,tried deleting the scanner and then adding, now it will not detect the scanner ONLY the printer
I bought a Airport Express so I could stream my music through my big money home stereo system. According to the manual I could use the AirPort express to expand my pre-existing wireless network.I started working on this at 9Pm and finally figured it out by 4AM First I have the Belkin F5D7231-4 so this will work with this router & I've heard the F5D7230-4. Basically your Belkin needs to support "Wireless Bridge" or "WDS".
Configuring the Belkin:Set your DHCP Server Range to what ever you desire. I use 192.168.2.2 - 192.168.2.22. Save your Changes.Go to Wireless Bridge: Enable Wireless Bridging & Enable Only Specific Access Points to connect.. Input the mac address of your Air Port Express into the field and save your changes.Next configure your wireless security. You have to choose WPA "2". I repeat you have to choose WPA2. Setup your password and save your changes.For the Encryption Technique I use TKIP. I have not tried AES and can not verify it works.Save your changes and say man this is pretty easy so far.Configuring the AirPort Express to act as an expander:At this point its a good idea to take a pin and reset the AirPort Express. After it boots back up change your wireless networks and log on to it.Loadup the Airport Admin Utility.Now choose to configure your AirPort Express. hange all the settings you see for Name / Contact / Location to your liking.Under Airport Network: Choose Join an Exisiting Wireless Network (Wireless Client)Find your Belkin under Wireless Network: It should be called what ever you named it.It will ask for your WPA2 Personal password to join the network so enter it twice.Now click on the internet tab at the top: Connect using: Wireless NetworkConfigure TCP/IP Choose to Configure Manually.Ip address you need to make it something outside of your Belkins DCHP Server Range. I used: 192.168.2.50 because my range stops at 22.
Subnet: 255.255.255.0 Router Addy: 192.168.2.1 DNS Server: 192.168.2.1
Now choose the Music Tab at the top and configure it to your liking.Give All your options a once over and then hit update. Wait for the AirPort Express to load up and enjoy the Green Light
I have a Canon Z200 camcorder. This unit has DV out to firewire. My MacBook only has USB inputs. How can I use my Canon Z200 with my MacBook? iogear has a USB/firewire hub will this work? Would I be able to plug my camera into the firewire of the hub then usb of the hub to the usb on my MacBook? I'm just wondering why I can't get a DV out to USB cable?
I just rediscovered my Canon Elura 100 camcorder and would like to use it and to be able to connect it to my brand new Macbook Pro (with Mac OSX 10.7.3). However, it is missing some parts such as a battery and firewire.Before I buy these things, I want to know if I will even be able to transfer videos from the camera to my computer, and if I will be able to edit them on iMovie, and generally how compatable the two are.I also want to know which firewire I can buy that will work to transfer videos from the camera to my computer. I have been looking on Amazon for the cable I think is appropriate (IEEE 1394) but the cable which have good reviews and seem to work are 4 pin/6 pin and I don't think those would fit in this computer; the ones with USB endings don't seem to work for most people.
Info: MacBook Pro (15-inch Late 2011), Mac OS X (10.7.3)
I have a firewire port on my new MBP and my USB ports are pretty much taken with my cellphone charger and my usb hub (for mouse/keyboard/other hard drive). Can I just get a usb to firewire cable to just plug in my new external to that? Also, the HD is portable so does firewire provide power the same way the USB powers the hard drive?
i have one of the new macbooks, one of the aluminum bodied ones. I want to upload some videos onto it from camcorder, but i cant seem to do it unless i use a firewire cable. of course, the new macbooks dont have an input for a firewire cable.
My MBP is attached to a couple of FW 800 harddisks. The connection works reliable and fast but the (3m) Firewire 800 9/9 cable is as thick as my thumb, which is rather annoying. I know that FW 800 requires nine wires and a good amount of shielding but maybe one of you guys has a recommendation for a relatively thin or flexible cable (required length: 3m).
I just bought a new 13 inch macbook pro with a Firewire 800 port. I want to use a firewire cabe to transfer files, using Migration Assistant, from my Power Mac G4 (AGP Graphics) with a Firewire port that has a 400 Mb/sec Speed. My question is what cable do I need? Is there a standard one or do I need a special cable to work between the two ports?
I just bought an iMac G5 and I need to transfer images/music/docs/movies from my powerbook G4 laptop. I heard I need a firewire 400/400 cable but I saw on ebay there's different threads/connections. I need to know specially which one I need before I buy.
I have two mac mini's set up side by side, and I want to connect them together with firewire so I can quickly send files from the new one to the old one, acting as a storage hd. What type of firewire cable do I need? one mini the old one has max output of 400, and the new one is 800.
I basically need to connect an older iMac to a new MBP but they both have different FW connections - I always get confused when it comes to cables so if anyone can point me in the right direction it'd be grand,
I need to buy a firewire cable so I can transfer photos and my itunes library from my older macbook to my new imac. I want to buy the cable from monoprice but I am confused by the number of options I have when searching.
I get results that have 4, 6, and 9 pin options. Do I need the 9 to 9 pin cable? 6 to 6 pin? Some other combination? My macbook is around 4 years old, pre-leopard, osx 10.4.x. The iMac is brand new.
I have to get a external drive for backup with Time Machine. Everyone says to get Firewire I guess because its faster...but.Do you need to use the power cord for those? I know some USB drives you can only use the USB cable and it powers it which is handy because I move the drive a lot and I hate connecting two cables....do firewire drives need both cables?
I'm thinking of getting the 500gb Time Capsule for my new iMac's backups. Should I use a usb or firewire cable for first time backup, then wireless for the scheduled backups after that? An alternative I've also thought about is just getting the airport extreme (for the wireless access and router) and use my Western Digital external HD.
