You should be able to pick up another power supply that is 15V 1.2A. Just take the old p/s with to an electronics supplier that has this particular specification. I believe the DTE unit has the electronics and controls for charging the lithium ion battery.

FS-C battery question...

I had a weird thing happen. I was doing a live video shoot and the battery on my firestore was almost dead. There happened to be an outlet next to me, so I plugged in the power supply. The "charge" light then started blinking and the only way I could get the firestore turned on again was to remove the battery and go AC only. Did I fry the battery somehow?

Upgraded HD in an FS-C

I just upgraded the HD to 160GB with a normal IDE drive in my FS-C.
All went well and it did its format at the first start up. What has become apparent now though is that I have two partitions - and when connected to my iMac two drives pop up on the desktop when connected.
The second to appear is always the one woithy the footage in it.
I asked tech support at Focus about the two partition scenarion and they confirmed that as the first partition fills it will auto flow to the next.
When not connected to a camera - it states I have 695 minutes of space - but then connected to my XL-H1 the space count drops - presumably the recalculation at the bit rate the Canon kicks out.

Have to say, the response and help from Focus was very rapid, knowledgable and very polite which brought more enjoyment from owning the unit.

My problem is, I can't seem to find a vendor for it. FE says they only shipped to Canon. I called Canon and they said they would not be carrying it. B&H doesn't carry it. A google returned no retailers.

Is this thing on the market yet? I have read a post about somebody already having theirs. Where can I buy it? Is it buggy?
How about this..
