I just got my HV40 yesterday... Shot a bunch of test footage and now I'm in the process of loading it. Huge problem though.
I'm on my Powerbook G4 running FCP 6.0.6 and it is not recognizing the camera.
Seq. Preset - HDV 1080i60
Capture settings - HDV Apple Int. Codec
Device Control preset - Firewire NTSC (not basic)
When I go to 'log & capture' I get: Unable to initialize HDV deck. Please make sure your deck is connected and try again.
I've done this... I've restarted... nothing...
Who might be able to shed some light on this problem for me. It's driving me mad!!!
