I have a Canon MVX3i (Optima) camera. It will not be recognised by Final Cut Pro 5 (running on OS10.4.2 and using Quicktime 7.01) or any other application (iPhoto, iMovie) when attached to a Mac G5 via firewire. I realise this has been an issue and I have already looked at the advice on the Apple website about removing receipts and reinstalling Quicktime which I have done to no avail.
The camera works fine on my powerbook running FCP4 and my other (Panasonic) camera works fine on the problematic G5. I have even tried another firewire cable and slot. Nothing. There is no info on the Canon website.
This is an expensive (and very nice) camera and I cannot accept that I am going to have to sell it for such an annoying reason. Please help.
