Author: Topic: Another Capture Problem!

Hi, I'm new here & I have a problem, don't we all?!!

I've just bought myself a G5 on which I'm running FCP v4.1. I'm using a LaCie Big Disk ext HD via a firewire 800 connection to store the media files. My DV deck is a Sony DSR-11.

The problem is... I can capture video using 'capture clip' with in/out points set, prerolls ok & grabs the media BUT cannot capture video on the fly using 'capture now' with no points set. Immediately I hit the button, my MAC just hangs & goes into silly spinning ball routine!

Anyone experienced this, got any ideas? I'd really appreciate some help guys!
