What the heck trying to Capture

Greetings,

I'm trying to capture from a JVC GY -HD200ub with Sony Vegas Pro. I'm using the same computer I've used before. I am always extremely careful to have both devices off when plugging in the fire wire cable, and I also have a converter for the cable to take the power out of it.

When I'm trying to capture now, the camera plays the tape back fine, but the video only shows up very rarely over computer. I see nothing, here sound off and on like it cuts out for five or six seconds every half a second, and occasionally about 15 frames will come through.

What do you think is going on? Is it the computer, or the camera?

Thank you for any help you can give me,

Jason

Ok, now I can't capture with final cut pro. It says it is waiting for the incoming data. And, that is not all, when watching on the JVC lcd screen, it seems to show a frame, occasionally a bit of movement, most of the audio, but most of the time it is frozen on specific section of tape, then ever 15 to 30 seconds seems to catch up, then stop again.

What is going on with this?

If anyone can help, thank you very much.

Ok, the plot thickens. I'm watching the tape, nothing connected through the firewire port, and it freezes on a frame, the audio sort of continues playing, then it catches up and freezes on another frame 5 to 15 seconds down the tape.

Any ideas?

Ok, it appears to be the tape or tape transport. I just put in another tape and recorded five minutes of footage. It looks great and transfers over without a problem.

Hmm. This is the third JVC Pro HD tape that I have used that did this. This is out of 30 brand new ones I bought from BH about 4 months ago, and out of those I've used 12. That is about a 25 percent failure rate. Any advice on what I should do? I have lost some really good footage with this.

Have a wonderful Holiday Season. And thank you for any advice when you all return.

Are the ProHD tapes white or dark gray?

They are pretty white looking, does that matter?

Hmm.

Thank you for replying Tim.

This is interesting to me, and wonderful if it turns out to be as simple as the tapes. Does anyone know if there is a difference between the white pro tapes and the dark grey pro tapes?

Jason, I don't know anything but Tim and I share at least one supplier. ALL of my tapes since the very first batch have shipped as the white/light grey if that ends up meaning anything.

Thank you Shaun. The first batch of tapes I order from Adorama were dark grey pro tapes, almost black, and have not had any problems. The second batch I ordered from B&H and they are all white looking pro tapes and are running about a 33percent failure rate. I'm trying to figure out if it is the tapes.

So, anyone know what the difference between the white JVC and Dark Grey JVC pro mini HDV tapes are?

I have ordered the recorder and it should arrive today. I hope this will mark the end of tapes stressing me out so much.

I just bought the DR-HD100. I'm planning on recording to this AND tape so I have a backup and have a lot less problems. I'm still trying to figure out though if there is something wrong with the tapes (I bought 30) that I have. Thus my wondering what Tim meant about asking me the color of the tapes.
