I'm experiencing a sudden FCP crash when loading SD card data in the Log and Transfer window.


I previously captured the footage and edited in Prores Proxy (with no problems), and I'm now upscaling to Prores HQ. Here's what I'm doing: right clicking on a clip/clips and selecting 'batch capture'. Log and Transfer window opens and prompts me to locate the relevant card data, which is currently stored on an external firewire HD. When I select the correct card, FCP starts to load the data, then crashes suddenly.


The footage is from a Canon 5D and a Canon 550D (Rebel T2i).


Have already tried deleting prefs and running a software update (for FCP and the Canon transfer plugin). Neither solution has worked.


Part of the crash message (incl. system info) posted below.


Thanks in advance for any help.
