You need the CCD files that were on the original disk that came with the back. That disk should be part of any second hand sale as the back is useless without it. Can you contact the seller and get hold of it?

Otherwise MAYBE Jenoptik or Sinar has a library somewhere with all their old back's CCD files on it, or the back could be sent to them to have ones created, but either way I imagine they would charge you to do that.

bdp is right. You need the calibration CD that should have been with the sale. The actual capture program (which Thomas linked to) will still require it.

Contact the original seller and if they dont have it (which is odd since its useless without them) try contacting Sinar as Bdp suggested.

I am not sure where from you bought this back. If from the Sinar dealer then he should have provided you these files, which are absolutely necessary. Other than that, you can contact Sinar directly: there effectively exists a library where all the ref files of the different back sold are stored, at Jenoptik (since it is a Jenoptik back). Sinar will certainly be able to get these files for you, but it is not a free service and costs about CHF 150,- to 200,-.

Best regards,
Thierry

Hi Raf,

A couple of years ago it cost me US$100 to get the CCD reference files (as a download) for an Eyelike M11.

Cheers,
Kumar

I eventually got hands to the original software CD with corrosponding CCD DATA file.... however: after installing the software i get a message of fire wire time out and i also can't select the H1 camera in the software. I then installed the newer version, 4.4xx but then even nothing happens. I am familiar with working with all phase and hassi/imacon back's, even the older leaf (upto the valeo) and older 6Mp sinar back's but this one really puzzles me. Why doesn't it work like just every other back i used. Please help wanted.

iXpressraf:

Version 4.4xx was specifically for eMotion backs, not the Precision series, which is what you have. You would need to use Capture Pro 4.3.5.3. But since the release date of Capture Pro 4.3.5.3 was October 2005, it is likely that it will not work well or possibly not at all on Intel systems, Leopard or later OS. What Mac and OS are you using?

Capture Pro 4.3.5.3 works fine on an intel macbook white with pre-snow leopard OSX at least. Have not installed Snow leopard so cant test that.

That's good to know, although I would caution that since 4.3.5.3 was not written for Intel or Leopard platforms, it may work fine on one computer, perhaps not on another.

I did just check in with one of my old Eyelike customers and he indicated no problems running on Intel either (Mac OS 10.5.8).

But in any case, iXpressraf, Capture Pro 4.4xxx is not for your back, you need 4.3.5.3.

This is a permissions issue and can be fixed quite simply. I had this when I used a Precision back and installed it on a new Mac, but I can't remember how I fixed it. Check your permissions by using command-I when Eyelike Capture Pro is highlighted in your applications folder. Something needs to be ticked or unticked or something like that.

I am not sure, but may be try to "Repair Permissions".

I never had any problem to install and to get it working.

-5000 error is normally relates to DVD reader operation. Perhaps the software is looking for the CCD files on a disc?

If you have them, try burning them on a disc and running the software, maybe it will then find them and put put them wherever they need to be and create the right path for suing them with the back?

Just guessing but worth a try maybe.

That could be the reason.

Since you have the files on the original CD try to simply copy them where they should be on your HD: Library ---> Application Support ---> Eyelike (here there should be a folder for the ref files, but I can't remember the name, drop them in).

Best regards,
Thierry
