I'm on a 15" 2.4 GHz Intel MacBook Pro running OS X 10.5.8, 2 Gigs 1067 DDR3, using Final Cut Pro 6. My camera is a Canon XH A1s, connected to the computer via a Firewire 800 to 400 cable. I'm trying to import a tape from my camera, and go throught the typical process of Log and Capture. However, upon opening Log and Capture, I get the following message: "Unable to initialize video deck. You may still log offline clips or use Capture Now." This has NEVER, I repeat, NEVER happened to me before and I am completely lost. My default sequence preset is DV NTSC 48kHz, capture preset is DV NTSC 48kHz, and device control preset is DVCPRO HD FireWire. I am trying to import HD video from my camera. I already tried trashing the user preferences but no luck.  Any ideas?
