I have a borrowed PDW 700 camera. I need to transfer the recorded files to my mac.. I have XDCAM Transfer 2.10, The Drive does not appears on the mac desktop. I assume (I have transfered before from a deck) that the firewire is disabled in the camera menu, but I cant find it!!! I looked at a manual PDF and it says the enable function is on menu 07-power save, but I don't have that menu , menu 07 is vf-disp 1 in this camera, can anyone assist?
The menu displayed is the USER menu, to enable the firewire you have to access the OPERATION menu. For this you have to push the rotary encoder while turning the menu switch to on, this will take you to the TOP menu (who should be the default one would think) and go from there on. By the way, the menu switch is the one under the cover over the on off switch, NOT the one on the select section. Boy, how complicated!!!!!
