Welcome to the forum, you should set up the capture preset to match the footage. Are you shoot PAL or NTSC SD?

In FCP, go to menu at the top and click on ‘Final Cut Pro’ then Easy setup.
In the dialog box for Format ‘Pal’ then Rate ‘25 Fps’ and finally use ‘DV-pal anamorphic’
Save and close FCP. Switch on XH A1 go to menu and in signal setup make sure Playback STD -DV is selected. Switch off camera.
Insert Firewire cable into Mac and camera. Switch on camera and open FCP, FCP should recognise the firewire cable and recognise your device, in your case your Canon camera and open up.
