hvx200 folder not showing up on mac desktop
on Apr 23, 2011 at 9:47:52 pm

Ok here is my problem, I have a HVX200 and have it hooked up to my macbook pro using FCP 6. I have already installed the AVC-Intra Decoder for Mac but only ever used it for a 170 model. Is there maybe a camera setting that I didnt use? Maybe a different decoder for the 200 than the one that is installed for the 170 already? I dont know what else I can do please help me.

You will need P2CMS software. Choose the one for mac.

Then make a reboot.

Next attach the firewire cable to the mac. Its ok to use a 400 to 800 converter.

Next switch camera on, then hit the BUTTON to go to MCR mode.

After that click the audio dub button beside the play buttons. This will remove the preview option to view the images that you shot.

Not the most important step is to press the BUTTON again for 2sec.

the viewfinder will say 1394 device... 1394 disconnect.... 1394 connect....

The P2 cards will be revealed in your desktop.

Use P2CMS to grab the files and transfer to your mac.

The remaining thing to do, and the most most important. HIT the write protect tab on your P2 card right after shooting.

there is a possibility that your footage might get corrupted..

Thanks, that has been done I have come to the conclusion that the firewire port might be damaged on the camera. I can get my P2 footage through USB 2.0 but as we all know I can digitize on FCP through USB 2.0 so it seems I have to get this camera repaired.


Thank you everyone for your quick and great advise
