When importing (Control-8) a DV-Tape (HDV), I see the import window as long as I press the switch "Direct". The program crashes immediately, even after re-installing the complete program. I don´t know what else I can do. I had no problems with FC Express before, but now with the full version I´m not able to import my videos at all...
I ereased the prefernece files as described somewhere else, but this did not affect anything.
Since I have to edit a very important video until Sunday evening, I need an urgent help!

    Not quite sure what you mean by this. On a mindlessly pedantic note, for which I apologise in advance; it's command-8 to open the Log and Capture window, not control-8. Now I've gotten that off my chest, what is this 'switch Direct' you mention?

    Hi Rainer, you are obviously running FCP in German. The button marked "Direkt" on your system is marked "Now" on a FCP system that runs in English.

    nsTODimporter is a QuickTime component. It is located at Hard Drive/Library/QuickTime and is installed by cameras that record in the .tod format which is a variation of MPEG 2 developed by JVC.
    Before you resort to a clean install, remove that component. You will need an Adminstrator password to fully remove it.

    I now will format C

    That's windows terminology. Mac hard drives have names.
