having problems capturing from my sony pdx1o!

i was using it fine back in oz before i came out here, but i had to totally reset my camera in china and now i cant seem to get connected to fcp. i will go out and get a new firewire cable tomorrow to make sure its not that.

i have played around with fcp capturing settings, as well as camera settings, but cant seem to find the right combination.

i am capturing thru Firewire PAL and DV PAL 48kHz Anamorphic but just cant seem to get anything. any help much appreciated - i think its in the camera set up, but not sure - esp. the av - DV setting and USB Stream. anyone?

thanks! benj of mongolia

The first thing to do is check System Profiler to see if the camera is listed under the Hardware Firewire tab.

Try iMovie. If it captures, then this suggests something specific to FCP.
