Particularly after trashing prefs you might have to reselect the correct Easy Setup and firewire interface. Canons can be funny with the Sony firewire setting. I haven't plugged a Canon firewire camera in for a while but I remember it had to be some variant of firewire basic.

Search this forum for that camera model and you might find advice on the best way to connect this camera, like making sure the camera is on and a tape playing before booting or opening FCP - tips like that.

Many thanks, did an easy set up and seems to have cured. JJB
