Re: Unable to initialize video deck

I am having a similar problem of "Unable to initialize video deck. You may still log offline clips or use Capture Now." I am using a Sony DSR-11 that has worked in the past and still working on other machines. I tried the same firewire cable and made my mac successfully talk to another mac with ethernet cables unplugged and wifi turned off. In FCP 7 I tried DV-NTSC and the DV-NTSC Basic and the DV-NTSC NDF. FCP still did not recognize the deck even being there. I made sure that wireframe on the canvas was checked and that the canvas was not running off the screen. I did not have the log and capture widow open and hidden. Under the view toolbar on external monitor I have all frames checked. Do you have any other suggestions? Thanks for your time and support.
