Problems with Video Devices

Problems with Video Devices

If your camcorder or deck is not recognized, check your cables, make sure that the camera or deck is powered on, and make sure that your camera is in VTR or VCR mode. If the problem persists, check to make sure that you have set the proper device control settings for your particular device. Sometimes just restarting your computer and cycling your camera or deck's power clears up problems. Starting your camera or deck (after it is properly connected) before you launch FCP can also be of help.

Sometimes your FireWire port needs looking into. More than once I've seen resetting the PMU switch (discussed in the preceding section) bring it back to life.
