Can't Import Footy From Vx2100

Recommended Posts

I got a good deal on a VX2100 from a friend of mine. The FireWire it came with wasn't what I needed for my iMac so I bought an adapter( http://www.sonnettech.com/product/fw_adapter.html ) to connect it to my computer but when I plug it in it doesn't show any things plugged in. I've never used the FireWire port but I have had issues with disc drive not working. I am just wondering if anyone's had problems with this adapter or importing footage to their iMac or if its a problem with the camera. Thanks for any info you got that can help me out.

The cord is cheap enough, I'm sure, but have you tried the DV port as is, to an DV input somewhere to check the cams output. Very common for the output chip to get cooked from "hot wiring" it. If it's cooked, it means a new main board as the chip was not designed to be replaced.
