This is relevant to a different problem but some of the steps may help you sort out your problem:


STEPS
***DO NOT HAVE ANY CONNECTION VIA FIREWIRE TO THE CAMERA.
***JUST CONNECT THE FIREWIRE TO THE "DV I/O PORT" ONLY, ON THE FIRESTORE.

Before trying the steps, make sure that the unit is in complete stop mode. Meaning the "TOP LINE" on the Firestore does not have:
1) E STOP
2) Y REC
The unit "must" be in STOP mode before attempting

FIRESTORE
1) Power unit ON.
2) By the SELECT button, press the RIGHT arrow key until you see the "HDD MODE" menu.
3) Scroll down to the recording option you want.
4) Once the option you want is "highlighted", press the SELECT button to choose that option.
5) Press the "LEFT" arrow key. This will take you back to the top of the menu.
6) Now press the "RIGHT" arrow key. You will be on the "FORMATS" menu.
7) Scroll down to the recording option you want.
8) Once the option you want is "highlighted", press the SELECT button to choose that option.
9) Press the "LEFT" arrow key. This will take you back to the top of the menu.
10) Now press the "RIGHT" arrow key until you get to the "FUNCTIONS" menu.
11) Scroll down and "highlight" FA SYNC.
12) Press the "SELECT" button to choose this option.
13) Press the "LEFT" arrow key. This will take you back to the top of the menu.
14) Now press the "RIGHT" arrow key until you get to the "CONTROL" menu.
15) Scroll down and highlight "TAPELESS" or “SYNCRO SLAVE”.
16) Press the SELECT button. (The unit will go back to home-screen with this display: E STOP (tape less) or Y REC (syncro slave))
**FireStore is now SET UP.

CAMERA
1) Power Camera ON.
2) Press your Menu button.
3) Look for a icon that says "DV CONTROL".
4) Turn the DV CONTROL "ON".
5) EXIT the menu.
6) CONNECT the other end of the FIREWIRE to the CAMERA.
**Camera is now SET UP.
7) Press RECORD on your camera. The FireStore's time code should be running
