HDD Mode Menu
These Datavideo Recorder are FAT32 based, giving an approximate 2G file limit.
There can't be clips longer than 2Gs, resulting in multiple files per track.
The Open GOP structure of the 1080 stream requires information that contained in these multiple files to
have a truly contiguous video/audio file, because of the nature of Open GOP compression.
Some NLE systems do not combine the m2t files when imported, so this needs to be done prior to import.
Hence Datavideo provide a utility (M2T_FileCombine.exe) to combine the m2t files.
How to use M2T_FileCombine.exe to combine the .m2t or .dv files
Step1 - Please connect HDR-40 to PC via IEEE1394 or USB cable
Step2 - Open M2T_FileCombine.exe
Step3 - Select source from hard disk (HDR-40)
Step4 - Select file DV_TRACK01(01) or M2T_TRACK02(01) …
Step5 - Click START to edit file name and then press SAVE combine the files.
The HDD Mode Menu will set up the HDR-55 as an external IEEE-1394 (Firewire) drive, for direct drag and
drop file transfer to a PC or MAC.
The files appear in the root directory of the HDR-55 hard disk, and are numbered with the track number that
appears in the LCD display when you are recording or playing back the track.
The HDR-55 uses a FAT32 file structure, so large tracks are broken down into 2 GB files which are
sequentially named:
For example if Track 02 is 1 hour in duration it will appear as follows:
hdv02.m2t(2 GB)
hdv02 is the file name for Track 02
hdv02_01.m2t (2 GB) Each 2 GB section is given a sequential _xx numeric extension
hdv02_02.m2t (2 GB)
hdv02_03.m2t (2 GB)
hdv02_04.m2t (2 GB)
hdv02_05.m2t (2 GB)
hdv02_06.m2t (77 MB) The last file in the sequence is likely to be smaller than 2GB.
Connecting to a PC / MAC
NB: Although your PC / MAC may see the HDR-55 as an AVC compliant DV Device it is not intended
to be operated as such.
Connect the HDR-55 IEEE-1394 output to a PC or MAC.

The PC / MAC should recognise that an external IEEE-1394 (Firewire) HDD has been connected. The HDR55 can be used just like any external drive.
To return the HDR-55 to Deck Mode either use “Safely Remove Hardware” with a PC, or with a MAC use
“Eject” or Drag the HDR-55 Drive to “Trash”. Once un-mounted the HDR-55 display will return to Track
Display.

HDR-55 can be used just like any HDD. You can select the required files and drag and drop them to the
required destination.
To return the HDR-55 to Deck Mode use “Safely Remove Hardware”. You will find “Safely Remove
Hardware” on the Taskbar.
Double click on Safely Remove Hardware and the dialog box will appear, select the Datavideo HDD IEEE
SBP2 Device and click on Stop. A second dialog box will appear.
Select Datavideo HDD IEEE SBP2 Device and click on OK. After a few seconds a “Safe To Remove
Hardware” message should appear above the Taskbar. You can then disconnect the HDR-55.
Once un-mounted from the PC the HDR-55 display will leave HDD Mode and return to Track Display.

Connecting to a MAC
NB: Although a MAC may see the HDR-55 as an AVC compliant DV Device it is not intended to be
operated as such.
Connect the HDR-55 IEEE-1394 output to a MAC.
To set the HDR-55 into HDD Mode firstly press the Menu button so that it is illuminated.
You will see the display change to the HDD Mode Menu
Press the Next (▲) Button(right) to select ENTER and the display will show the HDD Enable Confirmation
Screen
Press the Next (▲) Button(right) again to confirm, after a few seconds HDD Mode will be enabled
The MAC should see the HDR-55 as a HDD and the files will appear in the root directory of the drive.
You can select the required files and drag and drop them to the required destination.
To un-mount the HDR-55 from your MAC either “Eject” the drive, or drag it to the Trash Can. Once the HDR55 is un-mounted from the MAC the LCD display will return to normal.

Conforming to EIA RS-422A.
Full duplex communications channel is utilized.
Data is transmitted asynchronously, bit serial, word serial with data exchange between devices.
Standard transmission rate on the interface bus is 38400 bits per seconds (bps)
The data word utilized by the interface system is as follows :
START

PARITY
(ODD)
STOP
BIT
1 Start bit + 8 Data bits + 1 Parity bit + 1 Stop bit. Odd Parity
ODD parity : The total of “1”s in D0+D1+ . . . D7+PARITY equals an odd number.
24
2. Command Block Format
The data communication is composed of the CMD-1/DATA COUNT byte, the CMD-2 byte, optional DATA bytes and the CHECKSUM byte.
Commands are transmitted in order from the MSB (Most Significant Byte) to the LSB (Least Significant Byte). This means that when using the
examples in this manual, the order in which the bytes are read is the same order in which they are transmitted. When the DATA COUNT nibble is 0,
no DATA bytes are transmitted or required (the CMD-1/DATA COUNT byte, CMD-2 byte and CHECKSUM byte are still transmitted). When the
DATA COUNT nibble is not 0, the number of DATA bytes transmitted must correspond with the DATA COUNT. These bytes are inserted between
the CMD-2 byte and CHECKSUM byte.
COMMAND BLOCK FORMAT
The data communication between the controller and the device is performed as follows:
Name
Nibble
Size
CMD-1
Data Count
MSN
LSN
1 Byte
CMD-2
1 Byte

MSN stands for Most Significant Nibble (4 bits)

LSN stands for Least Significant Nibble (4 bits)
Data 0~15
(per Data Count)
Checksum
0..15 Byte(s)
1 Byte
COMMAND CONTENTS
CMD-1:
This is the first (Most Significant) nibble of the first byte of the command. The DATA COUNT (below)
fills the lower (Least Significant) nibble. It (CMD-1) indicates the command or return group to which the command
belongs as per the table below

DATA COUNT:
This is the second (Least Significant) nibble of the first byte of the command. The upper (Most Significant)
nibble is filled by the CMD-1 (above). It indicates the number of data bytes (0-15) that are required to be
inserted between the CMD-2 byte and the CHECKSUM byte.
CMD-2:
Designates the exact command within the section specified by CMD-1.
DATA 0..15:
If the command requires extended data, the DATA COUNT will be set to between 1 and 15 (a 0 indicates
that no extra data is required). These bytes will be placed here.
CHECKSUM:
This byte is used to check the data for communication errors. To calculate the checksum, each byte of the
command (CMD-1+DATA COUNT, CMD-2, and any DATA BYTES) are added together. The least
significant 8 bits (1 byte) are then truncated to create a 1-byte checksum.
I.e.: The command “61.0C.03” becomes
MSB
LSB
0110
0001
(=61)
0000
1100
(=0C)
(=03)
+)
0000
0011
0111
0001
(=70)
CHECKSUM = “70”
Therefore, the complete command is “61.0C.03.70”

4. Communication Protocol
•
All communications between the CONTROLLER and the DEVICE will be under the direct supervision of the CONTROLLER.
When the DEVICE (HDR-45/55) receives the COMMAND from CONTROLLER, the following COMMAND is returned.
ACK:
In case that the DEVICE receives a COMMAND not requiring data
COMMAND+DATA:
In case that the DEVICE receives a COMMAND requiring data
NAK+ERROR DATA:
In case that a communication error is detected or an undefined
COMMAND is received
•
The CONTROLLER must not transmit additional COMMAND blocks to a DEVICE (HDR-45/55) prior to response to a previous
COMMAND block.
•
The CONTROLLER must transmit of bytes in a COMMAND block for with intervals less than 10 milliseconds. If a DEVICE (HDR45/55) detects an interruption of a byte in a COMMAND block that exceeds 10 milliseconds, it executes a TIME-OUT error sequence,
voids the receiving COMMAND block, and transmit a NAK (TIME OUT).
•
When a DEVICE (HDR-45/55) receives a COMMAND block from the CONTROLLER, the DEVICE must transmit a response within 9
milliseconds. Therefore if the CONTROLLER cannot receive the appropriate response from the DEVICE within 10 milliseconds after
transmitting the COMMAND block the CONTROLLER detects a communication error, and must execute an appropriate process.
•
When a DEVICE (HDR-45/55) detects a communication error, it must immediately transmit a NAK to the CONTROLLER. (The content
of an error is shown on the COMMAND tables.) When the CONTROLLER receives a NAK, if must immediately stop transmission of
the block. The DEVICE must not accept a subsequent command within 10 milliseconds after that (except NAK-UNDEFINED command)
and must execute a necessary process.
