Ran into some trouble recently with my MRC1Ö sometimes when I go to record, it just crashes. This hasnít happened until recently. We kept filming and everything ended up okay, but, Iíd rather not keep waiting for it to turn back on. Seems kinda sketchy.
For someone w.no signature ur awfully hostile, & that is why I do this

This has happened to me before and I think it's a possibility of two things; dodgy batteries or the connection is dropping out somehow whether it's the cable or the FireWire port/s themselves.

Thatís pretty much what I was thinking, but I figured it would happen way more often instead of just when hitting record. I have another cord, Iíll see how it goes

If anyone is filming with a vx2100, this might help:

I filmed like that for roughly 1.5 years, but unfortunatly even the external recorder was unreliable as explained in this post:

Yeah my mate has similar trouble with mounting it on the VX2, but the mount he has means it can go on the tape deck side and seems to work well. It's just a ballache to click record at times.

I get some Nintendo Power Glove vibes from the way you have it.

Cheers to everyone sharing their experiences with these devices. So far they seem to be a bigger hassle than mini-dv tapes, regardless of eliminating dropouts. Transitional video tech can be frustrating.

Hey mate, I have the same issue with my sanDisk card, just wandering if ur was the 133x or a different type?


I wouldn't necessarily say that, my gripe post was probably the worst thing I had with the device par the batch of Sandisk cards that might've been too 'new' for the MRC1 (which I swapped for Transcend cards). I fixed the issue with a format on the device and it seems to be back to normal now.

Probably had a lot of times coming home to seeing glitches on tapes and/or the VX deciding to shit out on me when I'm out than I've had issues with the MRC1, but that's probably my luck with VX1s haha.

i just got the datavideo DN-60 (switching over from the capture cam)

just also switched up computer and using premiere pro 2022.

is it me, or is the option to capture on premiere no longer available?

i believe you can't import thru memory card directly on this.

any tips on how to import/capture the clips?

besides the ergonomic features of HVR-MRC1, are there any other disadvantages of this one compared to the datavideo?
