unionparade replied to unionparade's topic in Mac ApplicationsJust in case anyone else is having this problem: Turned out to be a firewire issue. If anyone is having problems with ANY device not being accepted by software, albeit being recognised, try solving the Security Level error by replacing IOFirewireFamily.kext with the 10.4.8/10.4.9 version - and then ALSO replacing IOFireWireAVC.kext with the 10.4.8/10.4.9 version. iMovie HD now captures audio flawlessly. iMovie 08 seems to have a strange lag, which I can only assume is a software flaw, as HD & FCP seem to work fine.
unionparade posted a topic in Mac ApplicationsSOLVED: See below, may be useful depending on how many others have this issue. UPDATE: On boot, a line appears which notes a link/load error on IOFirewireAVC.kext. Hi All, I've been scouring the web trying to find a fix for this problem. I've attached a Canon MD101 MiniDV cam via Firewire... running Kalyway Leopard 10.5.2 updated (without a hitch, it seems!) to JaS 10.5.3). It is showing in System Profiler, here's the output: FireWire Bus: Maximum Speed: Up to 400 Mb/sec MD101: Manufacturer: Canon Model: 0x0 GUID: 0x85000173DB0A Maximum Speed: Up to 100 Mb/sec Connection Speed: Up to 100 Mb/sec Sub-units: MD101 Unit: Unit Software Version: 0x10001 Unit Spec ID: 0xA02D But iMovie refuses to acknowledge that there is a camera attached. I've replaced the firewire kext to get rid of the security mode error, which seems to have worked as the error message no longer appears when I boot in verbose mode, but still no luck. Any ideas?
