I running Premier Pro CS5.5 om a Mac Book Pro running the lates version of OSX Lion. When I attempt a batch capture everything is logged correctly and the media is offline on a Canon XHA1s Video camers conected via Fire wire. When click batch capture the sysytem starts and stops right away say batch capture is complete however nothing is captured. In the batch captur log is stats Error unable to locate media. If I just hit the record button in the capture window everything records and is captured just fine. If I take the same camera and tape and plug it in via firewire to a windows laptop running Premiere Pro CS5 with the same capture settings it will batch capture just fine. I have called customer support several times and still have not been able to resolve the problem. Any help woud be appreiciated....Thanks Victor
Cant answer why you cannot capture on a Mac but can on Windows.
This might be helpfull.
But if there is no particular reason for batch capture, just capture the whole tape with scene detection on and later on through away the clips you do not want.
Batch capture wears out your camera by fast (re)winding all the time,
I am haveing the exact same problem but with a Panasonic DVX100 camera. Have you resolved the issue or made any progress? I've tried the suggestions in the link Ann supplied but on success. I know we are not the only ones haveing this problem but I cannot seem to find a solution.
