    CAPTURE TOOL problems

     Couple of problems:

    1)  The capture tool is having an extremely hard time finding pre-roll points (I tried this on several tapes) and says it FAILED.  (which is odd, because I'ver captured this footage before)

    2) when I hit "play" on the capture tool to get my deck to play the tape, my entire computer locks up so that I have to restart.  (I can't even hit "control/alt/delete")  This has also happened when I hit "play" on my deck while in capture mode.

    I have recently installed a new hard drive and re-installed Avid (from Xpress Pro to Media composer)

    Anyone have any solutions?

    Thanks!

     you might try to trash all your settings files and mcstate, start avid and try again.

    Re: CAPTURE TOOL problems

     OK.

    In the Settings folder, I deleted MC State, Site Settings, and Site Attributes. 

    I relaunched Avid.  Went into Deck Configuration and added Channel, added deck.

    But when I try to auto-configure it's saying "Auto-configure will not be successful because "" is currently not selected  Please select "" before auto-configuring this channel.

    What is ""?

    As of now, Avid isn't seeing the deck.

    Please le me know.

    Thanks!

    Re: CAPTURE TOOL problems

    I also started a new project and a new user.  Still no success.

    Any ideas?

    Re: CAPTURE TOOL problems

    I don't know exactly what you do but it seems to me that you didn't select the hannel before trying to autoconfigure. What I don't understand is why you want to autoconfigure as you already added a channel and a deck as you described.

    Actually I am not to fond of autoconfigure. Most of the time it defaults to a generic device. So I would advice to make a channel and add a deck to the channel by hand

    Re: CAPTURE TOOL problems

     I finally got it working.

    I just powered everything down and unhooked everything, and then fired it back up.

    For no particular reason, it started working.

    Hilarious.

    Thanks everyone for your help!!!!!

    Re: CAPTURE TOOL problems

    welcome to the improbability machine of Avid

    the uncertainty principal applied in an application- how do they even do it?

    hope it's as much fun for you as it's been for me

    I really don't know if I can ever endure another update field trip though- so I'm just living in terror of the anticipated Media Composer install now... do I need this?

    Re: CAPTURE TOOL problems

    This is an old post now but thought I might as well share my cure for this problem.  My mistake was that when I set up the new channel in Deck Configuration I had chosen Firewire on COM4 instead of Firewire on OHCI.  Once I chose OHCI the problem went away
