I'm trying to make a copy of my Raiders tape but can't get the PD1k to stick around. It'll start recording and after a random about of time the unit seems to disappear. I'll get 50 minutes of good recording and then blank. The JVC won't even 'see' it or anything on I-2 until I unplug the HD1k for a minute and plug it back in. I've tried different iLink cables, same problem. My JVC is connected to my DTC100 via I-1. Not sure if that matters. How is everyone else doing this? What am I missing?
I would first just connect the hd1000 straight to the jvc and make your dub. If that doesnt work then you have hardward issues.
I think I have an hd1000 and jvc connected to the dtc100 when I was making dubs once and this was just not a real stable setup from what I remember. For dubs connecting the two decks makes it a lot easier.
Maybe my JVC has an issue. I've got just the two decks connected together. It ran for almost 2 hours before the counter on the JVC 'locked up'. I've seen this before. I can stop it, rewind or FF the tape but the counter never changes, can't reset it. I have to power it down for a while and eject the tape. Anyone else have this problem?
