Please be a littlebit more patient. You posted your request only about 3 hours ago and the firestore device is not widely used. A user with some experience with the unit will surely answer you back soon.

Just the other day I recorded about a half hour of video on an FS1.

I disconnected the external Firewire drive, connected that drive to my Mac G4 without the FS1, and the Mac mounted the Firewire drive as usual. i was able to copy the files onto my RAID.

Note that the FS1 can be set up to write to several different file formats. Be sure to choose the right one to ensure compatability with your particular editing system.

Off topic, I had to smile a bit seeing that you're from India. So often people the U.S. end up being directed to call centers in India for tech support. For once it's the other way around ... :-)

Hi Bankim,

Yes, it is possible to simply disconnect the FireWire drive from FS-1 and connect it to a laptop and begin using the clips directly form the drive itself...just like any external drive.

Hope that helps,

Matt McEwen
