Having problems importing footage into FCP through Firewire...

Ive successfully imported my HDV footage into FCP from my HV30 to my FCP through firewire for about a year. Now I have a HDR-FX7. I have successfully imported once with this.
Now it is saying it cannot recognize a capture device. This has happened before with my HV30 but I just gave it some time or restarted and it was fine.

Any help?

Tyler

Have you checked your Audio/Video settings are correct?

In FCP. Make sure you have the right capture preset selected.

Sorry, I don't know anything about your camera that may be contributing to the problem, but it might be worth changing the firewire cable.

Update on mine.
I bought this firewire:
Monster Cable | 4-pin to 6-pin FireWire (Firelink) | 140254
and now its fine. Must have been the lousy one before it that was the problem.
