Thanks for that Paulo. Fortunately, it was not recording at the time, just in 'idle mode'. I will try the Xp scan idea and see what happens.

And Portugal was beautiful... a nice 18 degrees compared to 7 in the UK! Got sunburnt on the Penha Longa hotel golf course!

Have you tried running free run timecode and synching the cameras that way? Does FIRESTORE automatically start each clip at 00:00:00 if the cameras are running free run TC?

i dont need to sync cameras, I shoot news so I need to be able to use the time code when I log video and write down my sound bites. I have tried every mode of time code capture on the DR HD100 and the camera, and every time I bring the file into vegas 8, ALL the clips start at 0

Dr-hd100

After watching a youtube demo of the DR-HD100 I guess I will put out the extra money for the DR-HD100 VS the FS-4. Is anyone using the DR-HD100? Is it solid? reliable?

Good Experiences with DR-HD100 Thus Far

Randy,

I have been shooting with 2 JVC HD100Uís over the past 2 years, sometimes renting a 3rd for special event coverage. I just purchased the DR-HD100 a couple of month ago and it has worked like a charm for both SD and HD filming. Given all the hours spent capturing footage, especially from multicamera shoots at seminars and weddings, I wish I made this investment many months earlier.

The interface is very intuitive and it doesnít seem too hard on the battery load. So far Iím shooting simultaneously to tape and disk in ďsyncro modeĒ just in case I goof up while getting comfortable with the new setup, but it wonít be long before I go truly Ďtapelessí for most of my future projects. Iím so pleased with my new DR-HD100 that Iím looking to rent one from my dealer for shooting an upcoming Comedy Magic Festival so that I can cut down on capture time as well as allow my clients review the footage easily after each show.

If you do decide to get one, make sure your unit comes with the most current firmware, version 3.0. I purchased mine just before the update came out. Here is the info my dealer sent me in case you buy one with a previous version.

"DR-HD100 Full 720p/24/25/30/50/60 QuickTime HDV support: v3.0 released Feb 19, 2008
This update must be purchased from Focus Enhancements. This version also adds auto-reel functionality".

Enjoy,

Michael Lafleur

DR-HD100 Volume Partition Issue

Hello Everyone,

I just bought the DR-HD100 to fix the capture drop-out issues I have with tapes from my JVC GY-HD100. The DR-HD100 came in the mail last week. I started using it and it was great.

I would play the tape out of my camera. Camera was connected to DR-HD100 by firewire. DR-HD100 was set to make QT HD files. Then I moved files to my Lacie Harddrive. Seven tapes of material went well.

Then, all of a sudden the DR-HD100 said that there was an unknown problem and would I like to partition the volume. The choices of answer were "Yes" or "Menu." However, any choice I did through Menu always got me back to the same window to choose "Yes" or Menu. So, I eventually chose Yes.

It started to Parition the volume and it was running for hours. I unplugged it. I re-plugged it and did reset DR-HD100 to factory settings. That seemed to take half a second. Then the Parition Volume window came up again. So I said yes again and let it run. It ran from noon to midnight and was still running when I unplugged it again.

Does anyone know what is going on and how I can fix this? One minute it was working great and the next it flipped out. I don't remember doing anything different to make this happen, but maybe I did.

Thanks for your help.

Cheers,
Sharon

Can the Dr-100 be outfitted to be powered off a battery belt?

Can the Dr-100 be outfitted to be powered off a battery belt? If so what are my best options.
