FCP 7 not recognizing Sony DSR-1500A
on Sep 21, 2010 at 5:06:05 am

I've done a search on the topic, no luck so far. Hoping to find a solution.

Have a MacPro 2.66 Quad Core. 8 Gigs Ram.
Final Cut Pro 7.0.2
Sony DSR-1500A DVCAM deck.

I want to use 1500A deck to capture footage from DV tapes into FCP.

Deck is connected to MacPro via PCI-e FW400 card.

When I initially open FCP, it does not give me the usual warning about no A/V devices being connected, so it seems to recognize 'something' is connected.

When I attempt to Log & Capture, I get the [No Communication] at the Preview Screen.

I have dipswitch on 1500A set to "Remote"
I changed 1500A menu setting to i.LiNK

Input Video setting on deck blinks "S VIDEO"
Output Video setting on deck steady "COMPOSITE"

Capture Settings on FCP:
Device Control: Firewire NTSC
Capture/Input: DV NTSC 48kHz

Any assistance or insight would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.


Not sure if I'm missing another setting.

I GOOOOOT IIIIIIIIT!!!!!!!!! I bought the mac pro 12 core back in Dec. and it's been not stop debugging. I think apple should work out the kinks before putting this stuff out on the market. So the issue of not being able to get the DSR 1500A to work with fire wire with FCP 7. You have to have the remote cable hooked up to the back of the Deck and the fire wire cable hooked up as well. I hope this helps.
