Ours seems to not do any of what I described. I’m thinking of the countless home video camcorders that connect and operate just fine. This post is more of a warning than a search for answers. There are many DV products that may not appear on the approved list that will work perfectly with FCP. Now I can’t even load at all–my FCP system keeps reporting time code breaks, and shutting down. When sent back for repair, the first time they “adjusted the playback heads” which took 8 weeks.

I have been burned by this machine, and JVC, and I don’t want anyone else to get scorched either.
Not sure if its the new operating system or might not be compatible with FCP 7, honestly has been a great Deck for me and was supprise that you had such a bad experience with it. There are many DV products fs30u may not appear on the approved list that will work perfectly with FCP.
And the effects seemed cumulative. The point I got from Sara H’s. I’m thinking of the countless home sd camcorders that connect and operate just fine.
It just seems to be shoddy workmanship and terrible customer service on JVCs part. Ours seems to not do any of what I described.
JVC SR-VS30 Mini DV / S-VHS VCR
I have to use my camera to load into my system at this point. The more footage I loaded the worse the problems got.
I have done everything that has been suggested–cleaned the heads, changed tape brands, new firewire cables, changed camera footage different camera nothing works. Sorry you got burned. When sent back for repair, the first time they “adjusted the playback heads” which took 8 weeks.
Could you use the unit as a pass thru device to connect the output to a TV monitor when playing from the timeline. Actually, I have talked to some people who are having no problems at all, and others who are having the same problems as me, and worse.

Was I ever wrong–and I wish that I had done my homework. I sent the deck back for the second time, it took another 6 weeks–and they wouldn’t return any phone calls when I tried to check on the repairs progress, they “replaced two capaciters” and it still ve30u work. Return to posts index.
On my second attempt, I got more of the same problems, only worse. Now I can’t even load at all–my FCP system keeps uvc time code breaks, and shutting down.
JVC Pro Technical Description
I’m glad that jbc is doing right by you. This machine is worthless. I bought mine three years ago and use it with my Mac Tower, I never had any of the problems you describe. It’s not on the list of approved devices, so I hope people would check that out before buying sv30u deck.
It sucks that this happened to you, is it a new macbook pro the one with Retina Display that might be the problem. This post is more of a warning than a search for answers. It is pretty useless to me if I cannot load my footage from my camera masters.
