I tried to use the program under virtual PC but the windows Os will not "see" the camera. However, I dont feel like giving up just yet. ;)

So, did we ever come up with a bunch of presets? I've just found a handful, from searching this site. Like, really a handful. Less than 10.

Guy Krenn May 28th, 2006 06:01 PM

My anti-virus software indicates that the Blue Barn program has "suspicious scripting." Did anyone else experience this? Should I be concerned?

I also note from the disclaimer that Blue Barn reserves the right to "audit" your PC for compliance with the terms of use. Does anyone know what this means?

I hate to sound paranoid and look a gift horse in the mouth but I'm just not familiar with Blue Barn and remain unsure as to whether I should proceed.

If y'all can help me gather them up, I'll put 'em in the preset files download thread: http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/showthread.php?t=48287

Runtime Error
 
I've had to reinstall the Preset Manager because I got a new hard drive. Now, I can't get it work. Have tried several clean reinstalls, but no dice.

Is there anyone that would be willing to help me with this over the phone, my nickle?

I so, please e-mail me. jay at gooddogproductions dot com.

Thanks in advance.

jay, when you connect the xl2 and it prompts you for a driver, are you pointing it to the driver that came packaged with the bluebarn application? it's in a subfolder of the installation directory.

Jay Gladwell June 28th, 2006 03:12 PM

I did the first time, but now that you mention it, it hasn't asked for it again. That dialog box is not coming up. That's probably the problem!

Jay Gladwell June 28th, 2006 04:43 PM

I went into the Device Manager and the proper drivers from Blue Barn are installed. It can "read" the presets on the camera, but it won't set presets to the camera. Does that strike anyone as odd?

I keep getting:

Run-time error '-2147220991 (80040201)':

I get that exact same error as you also, I have no clue what it is about...

Chris Hurd June 29th, 2006 06:16 AM

Sorry to ask this but... you guys are absolutely sure your cameras are powered up in the "Ext. Cont." mode, right? It's the last spot on the power dial.

Jay Gladwell June 29th, 2006 06:27 AM

Yes, "Ext. Cont." mode.

Like I said, it's able to read the presents on the camera. It's able to clear the presets on the camera. So I know it's communicating with the XL2. It simply will not send presets to the camera.

Henry Cho June 29th, 2006 07:22 AM

it's strange the app will see the cam, indicating the driver is being recognized. one more suggestion from me... you could try uninstalling the driver from device manager, connecting your xl2 again, and reinstalling the driver from the 'found new hardware' wizard.

Stephen Duke June 29th, 2006 08:16 AM

Hi Guys,

I'm happy to see so many people have enjoyed this little app. Its been a while since I wrote it, and since my memory isn't as sharp as it used to be, I cant remember what causes the error. I'm working over this weekend, and will not be able to debug the problem for you until next week. A couple of things:

Its been a while since I've picked up a XL2, I think there is a DV Control setting in the system menu, try turning that to ON.

Make sure that you have the latest service pack for XP.

I just did exactly what you told me to, uninstalled everything Canon XL-2 Related from my PC, installed it with the drivers properly then installed BlueBarn, it still gives me the same problem.

Jay Gladwell June 29th, 2006 08:55 AM

Henry, I tried that yesterday--no go!

Steve, I'll look for that DV control setting. Hopefully that will fix it!

Thanks!
