I capture footage all the time without problem, I'm not very techo but I agree with the questions and it works fine this time when I capture now the footage slows down, and on replay it out of sync and cuts off to black after about two seconds, please help me I dont know why its doing it.

Your post is confusing and lack crucial details on your settings/formats/codecs

What are you capturing from?

Hi Chris thanks for getting back, I am capturing from aBDV1808i Sony
I have done it this way for years, but I don't know what has changed.
The capture settings are apple firewire.DV Pal 48 I'm in Australia
It captures sort of jerky and then after 2 sec goes black, then tells me about time codes, time codes are not important to me as I only capture now.
Another project I am working on (which was fine) now won't play on the timeline, it stalls and jumps
The only thing I changed was the scratch disk as I added a new storage disk.
I moved files around onto the new disk, all this started at the same time sorry to sound vague but I only use FCP for this one thing and don't know what I may have done to change things.
Any ideas would help I will try them all, I don't use the Mac for anyting else so it is a mystery to me.
I also have a problem with the HDD it tells me to run repair disk but its not lit up so I can't.
Thanks again, I'm lost as it has never given me any grief before.
Gail

It sounds like you have a dying hard drive.
If you cannot run a repair on it, it might be gone for good.
Always backup files b/c drives will fail.

Can you try a new drive?
