Why Won't Vegas 10 import Sony HDV files

In Capture it says it isn't reading the camera, not identifying it. I'm using firewire connection. Why isn't Vegas capture finding my camera, a Sony HDV Handycam 1080i progressive?

As always thanks so much to you guys...Johnny In Orlando

You have to use the HD capture option. If all you've been using so far are SD cameras, go Options > Prefs > Video and deselect the Use external video capture application option.
Now click the capture icon and the HD capture window should pop up.

FYI, a lot of users prefer to use HDVSplit instead of the Vegas app.

In addition to what Mike suggests, make sure that your camera is in HDV capture mode and not DV capture mode. Some HDV cameras will down convert to DV on-the-fly so you have to both have your camera in HDV mode and in Vegas Pro use the HDV Capture utility and not the DV Capture utility.

HDVSplit for HD captures and WinDV for DV captures are great
alternatives without going through Vegas.
