Intel Mac :: Can't Capture Video From DV Camera Via Firewire?

May 31, 2012

I'm tryin to transfer video from my Sony DV camera to my iMac, but neither iMovie not Adobe Premiere cannot recognise the device.  They both automatically select my iSight camera as the one and only video source. 

When I check the Firewire status in System Profiler I get the message: "Unable to list FireWire devices". 

I have tired restarting the software, unplugging the camera, unplugging the firewire cable, restarting my Mac but still no result. 

I spent a considerable amount of time Googling for solutions but have not come up with anything that helped.  I have also tried unplugging all other USB devices, restarting the machine, trying again, but still the same issue. 

The weird thing is that about a year ago I managed to capture video just fine from the camera into Premiere without any problems. 

The only thing that is different now, is that I have Windoes XP installed on my Mac as well. Could this be an issue, with XP "stealing" my firewire connection in some manner?  I'm not sure how this would be possible, but I suppose it could be... 

My iMac is a 21.5" with an Intel Core 2 Duo 3.06GHz processor.  4GB DDR3 Ram and Mac OS X 10.6.8 

iMovie is version 8.0.6 and Premiere is CS4. As I said, I had managed to capture video using the same equpiment about a year ago and the only difference now is that I also have a partition on my Mac with Windows XP (Service pack 3) on it. 

Of course, the cable itself could be faulty, but since it hasn't been used in over a year, I doubt that's the issue. I still wanna try anything else, before I buy a new cable.

Hardware :: Video Capture Card For Bird Box Camera Possible?

May 27, 2009

Machine Name:Power Mac G4 (AGP graphics); Machine Model:PowerMac3,1
CPU Type:PowerPC G4 (3.2); Number Of CPUs:1
CPU Speed:1.3 GHz
L2 Cache (per CPU):256 KB; L3 Cache (per CPU):2 MB
Memory:1 GB; Bus Speed:100 MHz

I have a camera with RCA style jacks for power, audio and video. The red RCA jack is used for power, and has its own power supply. Yellow and white RCA jacks provide video and sound, and which I connect to my VCR Input jacks.

I would like to capture the camera's output into my computer.

Do you have a recommended product for this, or link to read about my options. My computer is not new, which may be a complication. But I have a couple of empty bays.

I have searched some forums, but most of what I find is VHS to DVD conversion, which might not be what I am after.

Intel Mac :: Firewire 400 Camera Doesn't Work With 800 Port?

Jun 26, 2012

I have a firewire 400 camera that i'm using for a project and one firewire 800 slot on my iMac (Late 2009). When I plug the camera in, nothing responds no matter what I do - tried resetting the PRAM and SMC. Compare this to my older iMac (Late 2007) which has both firewire 800 and 400 ports. I plug it in and it pops up using the underlying Quicktime controller api on either the 800 or 400 port no problem. So I figured after trying to install a firewire camera library (libdc1394) which I need for my project which didn't work, that it must be a hardware issue, so I took it to the Apple store. The genius at the store booted the OS (Lion) from a firewire drive via 400 to 800 cable (no external power to the f/w drive was used) and then using the spare 400 slot on the hard drive, he plugged (daisy chaining) in my camera and it loaded! So this suggested 2 things - my OS is corrupt or my card can't read straight from my device but why a hard drive in between would change this is beyond me. I came home and installed OS X on to an external USB hard drive and loaded up from it - so this is a fresh version of Lion, there should be no software issues. Plug the camera in to the I/O board of the iMac but load the OS from the external USB hard drive - nothing happens, the profiler doesn't detect anything at all. On a side note, I installed XP and Ubuntu Linux and they also can't detect it, which further suggests its the device or I/O board when interfacing directly with this camera. I've tried providing the devices with external power, daisy chaining 2 cameras, using a usb hub....nothing works. Just for good measure, I tried to boot Lion off the external USB on my older iMac and again, it worked no problem, which to me really narrows it down to the hardware. 

I feel like perhaps the port is a bit dodgy and when the genius daisy chained it, it worked better, but no idea why. Someone said I should get a firewire 400 to usb adaptor

OS X :: Image Capture Not Recognizing All The Files On Camera?

Oct 10, 2007

I am having problems with Image Capture not recognizing all the files on my camera (and recognizing photos that have long since been deleted).So I just took a few pictures to test out and see if I could get it to work right. I plugged in my camera and opened up image capture. I clicked download all. It downloaded two pictures that are not even on my camera (I double checked to make sure) and they were deleted weeks ago. And it's not recognizing the pictures I just took. There are about 23 pictures and it's not recognizing any of them just the two pictures that were deleted a while back. What's going on here? I'm new to Mac by the way.

Software :: Image Capture Does Not Allow Downloads From Digital Camera?

Aug 23, 2010

On my Mac running Leopard 10.5, Image Capture has Preferences that allow me to choose an option that opens Image Capture when a USB digital camera is attached. That's gone on my new Mac with Snow Leopard. I never needed camera software to make this work, and unfortunately I have a Canon camera and Canon does not make drivers or software for Snow Leopard. So, how does one get Image Capture to open and download images from a digital camera? Did Apple dumb-down Image Capture like they did to iMovie?

Hardware :: Image Capture Not Recognize Sony Camera

Feb 28, 2008

Bought new Mac Mini and have been using it for two weeks with no problem. Until now.

Plugged in my Sony camera which has worked with the old G4 Quicksilver for the last 4 years. iPhoto didn't open, so I checked Image Capture, which says "No device connected"... Checked leads, restarted etc, still the same.

Took the MemoryStick out of the camera and put it in a card reader and iPhoto opened immediately.

Swapped USB sockets. Checked System Profiler; no camera shows as connected.

Any suggestions as to how to get the Sony working again from its cradle? It seems to be connected in the cradle because it's charging OK.
