Toast 7 Quits When Fw Camcorder Connected (turned On)

Question

Hi,

 

I just upgraded from 10.3.9 to 10.4.4, also installed iLife 6. I have done all the repair permissions and disk warrior maintenance, also onyx. Every time I put my camcorder (Canon ZR 60) into vcr mode, Toast 7 quits. It happens every time without fail. This is the first time I have ever had that probelm. I am using a PM G5 1.8GB SP, 512GB ram, 10.4.4 and QT 7.0.4 pro. This is when I use my internal HD as the boot drive.

 

I also upgraded an external FW HD to 10.4.4, QT 7.0.4 ilife 6 and Toast 7.0.2. Now using that HD as the boot drive, Toast does not quit when I put the camera in vcr mode. What is causing Toast to quit on the internal HD?

 

I have repaired permissions and used Disk Warrior several times w/o that making a difference. I have also deleted ALL Toast files and done a complete reinstall of Toast along with the accompanying permission repair, etc. Is it something in QT? Why one HD and not the other with the same OS and app versions?

 

Please help.

 

Thanks,

 

Bob

 

ps. I had no problem using the internal HD as the boot drive using os 10.3.9, Toast 7.0.2 and QT 7.0.1.

Bob,

Sounds like you have a Gremlin in your Mac.

 

Odd Firewire and USB issues sometimes are a result of system updates. I suggest downloading and applying the 10.4.4 Combined System Updater. Doing this some times fixes these issues. If you've already done it, do it again. The alternative is doing an archive and re-install of the OS.

 

By the way, couple applications that will capture video from your camera direct to the hard drive are Vidi and VirtualDV. Both are free. The latter is part of Apple's Firewire SDK 20 kit available via this page: Apple Developer Kits

Hi,

 

Thanks for the responses and suggestions. I'm up and running again, but only after having to do a complete erease and install.

 

What's really weird is that iMovie 6 worked fine and recognized the camera w/o quitting.

 

So there must have been something that went wacko during the install.

 

So now I am running 10.4.4 with iLife 6 (there are gliches there with iMovie unresponsiveness while trying to edit clips) and Toast 7.

 

Bob
