Dear Friends,

I am screwed.
The RED drive we recorded to (3K - 48fps) won't mount on any computer but the footage is playable inside the camera. I am attempting to capture from the camera and I am not getting anywhere... no signal.

Please give me some guidance any time you can. In the mean time, I am going to the hardware store for rope.

Be back soon.

Thanks

An update for you, I see signal on the broadcast monitor with the signal going through the card in the mac, but FCP says "No Input Signal"

How can that be?

Does anyone have a workaround?

Step #1 is:
- Trash all FCP preferences and then clean install the video card drivers.

Will do.
Is there a step 2?

So the drive is now mounting the computer or is the broadcast monitor feed coming from the camera?
If the drive is still not mounting to the computer you should see if it can mount it to a Windows machine vs. MAC

The drive still doesn't mount unfortunately.
The feed goes through the card to the monitor but is not recognized to digitize.

Trying to dump off to a SONY XD Cam machine as well.
So far unsuccessful

This thread is almost frightening to read. Perhaps you should try REDUNDEAD the free software that recovers R3D media from drives.

Is the drive powered up? (you might have a blown port of you do not use the power supply that comes with the RED drive.

Have you entered a support ticket at RED.com? (they are the best folks to contact)

have you tried the FW and FW 800 ports?

You do understand that the outpust from the camera is a monitoring path.

It makes me cringe to see people working with RED footage in this way.

Sad.

HI.

I have seen this kind of slow mounting some times.

Finally drive pops up after some time but i always used fw not usb.

this capturing is more like last minute thing i guess.

Probably it would be possible to oversee this problem on the set.

Thanks, do you think we should just attach it and leave it until it mounts?

I am not enjoying this at all, believe me.
Yes I know full well that it is a monitoring path.
Redundead failed.
The drive powers up and plays back fine off the camera, but I cannot get the files off the drive. So, I thought to digitize directly from the camera.

Do you have another option?
Should I use Apple's Disk Utility to repair it?

Shut down the machine.

Power up the drive.

Use FW 400 port.

Restart the computer.

Wait to see if the drive mounts. It sounds like it might be a very full drive. Give it time to mount.

If this fails. Call RED.

David



Peace

Yeah call RED- it's either something they can fix or you send it to Drivesavers and pay for data recovery. But don't keep mounting and unmounting the drive- that will only make things harder to recover.

Don't use any Mac program to fix it, it's FAT 32!

The only thing to try is different ports, our FW800 has been dead for a while, but 400 works.

Good luck,
