outputting dv sequence to z7u

outputting a dv sequence from final cut to z7u camera via firewire...

using all frames, and 720 x 480 video playback which gives me audio/video to the camera...

after outputting a 54 minute sequence to a tape, i switched tapes and started a second sequence...the audio is now scratchy sounding, sounds like digital looks fine...

played sequence on computer, sounded fine...tested the tape i just recorded to, it sounded fine on the camera's playback...

the noise only occurs when playing to the cam via firewire using all frames and the 720 x 480 video playback and the audio follows video function...

i tried another firewire cable too...

footage lives on a g tech 1 tb external drive...connected to computer via fw 800 connected to g tech drive via fw 800 to fw 400 cable...

Sounds like you're monitoring system is getting in the way. Does it sound OK from the recorded tape directly played to a video monitor or TV set and speakers? If so look into the way you're monitoring things.
