I think FCPX insists on timecode, so capturing through a converter won't work. What I've done successfully is to capture using the QuickTime X Player.
Open the Player and select File>New Movie Recording. In the bottom right of the resulting window, click the down-facing triangle to select the Sony device. Once you complete the capture, import the resulting file into FCPX.
You could also probably copy through the converter to dv tape, then capture from that tape.

I'd be curious to know if this works properly with FCP. QT produces some weird format file, which may be DV Stream.

I tried importing using Quicktime and had trouble getting it to work using another input device. Honestly didn't spend a lot of time troubleshooting that. Instead I went into iMovie to give it a try. Worked like a charm!!! Can even do the same analysis for motion as in the FCP import.
