Default Ideas on troubleshooting ADVC 100

Hey everyone,

I am having some problems with my ADCV 100. I am wanting to see if anyone has any ideas about how to revive it before I write it off as dead! :(

I recently got the ADCV 100 and this is the first time I am using it.

My set up is a VHS recorder, connected to the ADCV 100, which was connected via firewire to an external 7200rpm 1TB hard disk (400GB free), which in turn was connected via firewire to a macbook pro 2.4GHz laptop, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD (285GB free). The OS is OS X 10.5.8, and I am using iMovie 6.0.3.

The ADCV 100 has a third party external power supply providing DC 5V and 3Amps.

This is my first attempt at video capturing. I hooked everything up. I was able to see the ADCV 100 in the firewire section of the System Profiler. I started iMovie and started the capture, it picked up the feed from the VHS tape and started recording. At just over the one hour mark the feed from the tape stopped. It appears the ADCV 100 had dropped out from firewire.

I switched everything off then restarted it. The computer could not detect the ADCV 100 any more. I unplugged the ADCV 100 left it for half an hour to de-charge, then tried again. Still nothing. I tried combinations like plugging the ADCV 100 directly into the laptop, still nothing.

I am hoping there are some other things I can try. I would love to hear any suggestions, cause it would **** to think the ADCV 100 has died before even one capture was completed! :(

So please throw forward some ideas! :)

I presume you tried rebooting the laptop? What about plugging the ADVC100 into another computer?
