I just bought FCP 7 and had trouble getting video off card. I have since figured that out. But I shot a couple of minutes of B-roll on tape and now the computer won't log and capture the tape. The l&c window says "Preview Disabled" even though at the bottom is says "VTR Okay."When I click on capture now I get a window that says "Waiting for Timecode, Device must be in VTR Mode when Device Control is enabled." Nothing happens when I press the play button on the camera.

How would you expect to shoot DV to tape and yet capture HD? Doesn't work that way. You shoot to tape- that's DV NTSC/SD. Capture as such. If you want it to play on an HD timline, upconvert.

And that is why you have to list settings. Easy problem to give an answer to but only if we know.
