capture HDV material recorded in DV tape ?

Hello people!
How can i capture material recorded in a Sony Z7 in HDV and the tape used has a sony Dv. the thing is that i have a canon XH A1 camcorder to capture the material. Ive set the camera and FCP to HDV but there seems to be no connection between the camera and the computer.
- the setting on capture FCP im using is: HDV when i change to HDV apple-intermedia codec it says the deck is turned off.
- the setting on A1 is (stander rep) HDV (con. des. hd) connect
- ive change the FCP settings for captures several times and turned of the program and nothing
any ideas? what im i doing wrong?

Just to check - the HDV tape plays well in your Canon, and the pictures appear ok on the screen, the audio's clear? The Canon is Firewired into your Mac?

Yes the tape plays on the Canon and is connected via Firewire.
Should i use an specific cable? Im using a 4pin to 800 firewire that i regular use on a sony HC40 to transfer regular DV material, and it works just fine.
Still looking for answers, thanks!

Hi, Elena..................

Put a fresh tape in the Canon and shoot 15 seconds of DV.

a. Can you capture it on your system?

Rewind the tape to the beginning and shoot 15 seconds of HDV.

b. Can you capture that?

Put in the tape shot on the Sony.

c. Can you capture that?

If the answers are:


1. Yes, Yes, No - there's an issue with the Sony shot tape.

2. Yes, No, No - There's an issue with your system and HDV

3. No, No, No - There's something seriously amiss with the link or your settings

If you have any other combination of answers, do tell.

Hi Chris!
Thanks for the ideas!
After lots of trials with Canon and Sony in Dv and HDV, changing settings on FCP and so on. I have the answer, is the connector on the camera. Is lose so as i moved the cable it had signal. And i guess is a manufactured issue because is my first time capturing with this camcorder.
Thanks anyway :)
