Problems with firecapture

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys

I've just bought a ZWO462 camera. I can get this to work on Both sharpcap and ZWO's  own software but for Some strange reason, fire capture doesn't see it. I have the latest drivers installed and my ZWO224 works fine on fire capture. Any clues please?

Cheers Harvey

Which version of FireCapture? V2.7?

I'd post your problem on the FireCapture group, Torsten is very supportive and I'm sure can help.


I did see a message that some Mac users are having issues with the ASI 462.....

(I use FC with the ASI 174 and ASI 1600 - no issues)

There's a topic on CN concerning this and it seems at the moment you have to download the ASI SDK (Software Development Kit) and move one of the dll files to the Firecapture folder to get the camera to work. Torsten has posted there (post 10) giving details. 

Also, the latest beta Firecapture releases now have the correct dll to work with the 462, so there shouldn't be a need to do the above if you use the beta release.
