I have been capturing footage from several tapes for many days now, with zero problems. I started doing some more today,
also with no problems, until about the 4th capture attempt. Suddenly, when I hit 'capture now' during playback, nothing at all
happens. I have more than 2TB of free space on my scratch disk, and no capture settings have been changed. I can control
the deck just fine, so communication between the deck and FCP is not an issue. But it literally went from being fine for one clip,
and completely non responsive for the next. I closed FCP, powered down the camera, re-seated the firewire cables, turned the
camera back on and re opened FCP. Same thing. 'Capture Now' doesn't do a thing. I have imported more than 15 tapes without
a single issue, now suddenly I am dead in the water. What am I missing?
I am using a Sony HC-1 with DV footage; Easy Setup set to DV NTSC, Device Control to Firewire NTSC. As I said, device
control works perfectly, but capture suddenly will not initiate. It's as if the 'capture now' button just went dead,
so to speak.
