Problem resolved by pushing 'play' on the camera rather than in FCP - cannot find the reason why though.
I'm trying to log and capture footage. I'm currently running Final Cut Pro 6.
Capturing from Sony HDR FX-7, 1080i
I'm capturing using HDV-1080i60 presets in Final Cut.
The problem I'm having is that every time I set a tape to capture, i like play & capture now; it starts to capture for approx. 10-30 frames and then says 'searching for media' i've tried it on several tapes to no avail.
