FCP5 crashing on intel machines?

Is it normal for Final Cut pro 5 to crash immediately when attempting to capture HDV/apple intermediate codec when using a G5 intel machine? DVD studio pro is doing bizarre stuff too, like a green bar on the bottom of a burned DVD movie.
Do you have to buy 6 if you want to use an intel machine?

What's a 'G5 Intel machine'? G5s are PowerPC. Intels are Mac Pros and forward and never the two shall meet.

Also, are you using 5.1 or 5.0? 5.1 was the first Universal Binary, and it was said that 5.0 wouldn't even run under Rosetta on the Intel machines.

It's not my computer, I'm trying to work with a friend. To correct myself, he has a Mac Pro. And I know that there is a version of FCP5 that can't even capture HDV, or at least not HDV from an HDR-FX1. I think he is running the updated 5: "5.5"... "5.1"?
Anyway I will remember to remind him about the different versions of 5, but I was hoping that this information would be enough to get some suggestions, or experiences on the subject of FCP crashing immediately when capturing apple intermediate codec.

I wouldn't know because I have 5.5 on my powerPC machine, and 6 on my intel machine.

Shouldn't crash but you can always capture to HDV instead- not a ton of benefit of capturing right to AIC.
