"This is such a common problem. It's not worth fixing if it happens. better off buy ing a deck."
I agree, JVC told me they are not releasing any new decks because they are phasing them out. Tape is not in the future, Although I agree they had better come up with a better Firewire or other method. $1,000+ to fix a firewire port plus $1,800 for the JVC firestore x2 for my 2 cameras is way to rich for my blood. Id like to seem them release a modest priced playback only deck for like $1,500 to $2,000 but I doubt it ever going to happen.

why not get the fs4 for $640?
3 hours of video record time. Not bad.

I have the 4 port version of this.

Note the comments about Spark protection/hot swap.

Regardless, I always power down the camer, but it isn't practical to power down and reboot the PC every time

I am balancing my options today, I found someone who can fix my firewire ports for about $650X2 for 2 cameras $1,300 + either $700 each for the FS-4 or $1,500 for the dr hd100 vs $2,700 for a deck. its a close call. I anyone using the FS-4 with the GY-HD100?

I'd hate to test this out of the box. Like diffusing a bomb.

Are you sure your firewire is blown?

Randy, Is the problem simply that you NLE won't recognize your camera? Are you sure that your firewire is blown. Try hooking up 2 cameras via firewire and transferring video between them. I use FCP. Ever since I upgraded to QuickTime 7.4 I have been having problems capturing video. I actually had to use imovie to capture my last project.
