new IO HD
on Jan 18, 2008 at 10:07:40 pm

hello, i just installed the aja drivers 1 and 1.1 for my Aja that is fresh out the box. i connected a sdi to the digibeta deck and the sound cables, connected the firewire 800 to my macpro 2,6. and started up FCP 6.0.2. but fr whatever reason my FCP doesnt start when the AJA os turned on...is stops during the loading process. i have gotten the weird grey screen error when you have to restart the mac 2 and once i restarted because the FCP wouldnt force quit...anyway, i dont really know what i should do to get this little guy running properly...if anyone has a tip i would appreciate it...


thanks

You installed both sets of drivers? First uninstall 1.1 and turn off ioHD. Restart. Open up FCP then quit FCP. Turn on ioHD, Reinstall 1.1, restart. Open FCP.

you did not specify what drives you have hooked up to your system. You CANNOT HAVE any firewire drives on your system - just SATA, SCSI or Fibre Channel. A typical Lacie FW800 drive will conflict with the I/O HD.

hello once again. i tried the uninstall and reinstall thing and i still didnt have any luck. i also checked to see if i had any drivers. the only thing i could think of was this keyspann thing i use to connect the USB remote thing with my mojo. could that interfere with the AJA? i ran the aja conflict detector and it came up empty...so im beginning to scratch my head a little...

YES - you cannot run an AVID and a FCP system on the same hard drive. Dealers that want to install this will have TWO PARTITIONS on the hard drive, or better yet, TWO INTERNAL BOOT DRIVES - one for the AVID Mojo system, and one for the FCP system (with I/O HD). The keyspan is on the USB port, and will not interfere with the AJA I/O HD (you own a Keyspan USA-28x Dual Serial Adaptor, correct ? )

To repeat, you can screw around all you want, but you will NEVER get an AVID Mojo and FCP system (with an AJA or Blackmagic product) to work on the same boot drive - NEVER, it's not going to happen. Get another internal hard drive, and use your system preferences to decide which you will boot on (and weather you will run AVID or FCP).

The AVID Mojo is a Firewire interface - how the HELL do you expect the I/O HD to run when the AVID mojo is Plugged into the FW400 port ???? And you still didn't answer what drives you have. It's either the MOJO, or the I/O HD - NOT BOTH !
This is even if you follow my advice, and have two boot drives.

Slightly OT followup to this post (sorry to jump in with unrelated stuff)

Bob-

If I put another firewire 800 controller card in my MacPro, I should be able to use Lacie firewire drives, right?

I'm a couple days into getting my system running properly, WITH a sonnett controller card and a few 800 firewire drives daisy chained. Everything seems to be working ok.

Most of my stuff is on a firmtek Sata, and will be on, newly purchased Lacie Biggest s2s.

aaron -
you didn't answer my previous questions.
Did you DISCONNECT your AVID MOJO ? Did you DISCONNECT your Keyspan ? Now, if you did this, and are running the I/O HD in the FW800 port, with NO OTHER FIREWIRE DEVICES, you go into the EASY SETUPS, and choose an AJA easy setup (like Betacam 8 bit uncompressed, or one of countless choices), and you should have VTR control thru the AJA I/O HD. If you continue to say "well, I'm going to try to get this thing to work with all this other hardware connected at the same time"- then I cannot help you.
