File error message when capturing from DV

All of the sudden I am getting a "File error-unknown file" message when I try to capture from DV in FCP 7. I have never had this problem before. I checked to make sure I was still set for Firewire Basic in the Easy Setup and the A/V settings. Also, the Firewire is communicating with the deck, allowing me to shuttle the tape, mark in/out, etc. It only fails when it gets to the final capture step. Capture Now doesn't work, either. I have changed the cable and the deck, and get the same result. Any suggestions? I remember something about trashing the Preferences but I don't know what folder they are in. Thanks.
