Capturing Digital 8 in FCP 6

I'm trying to capture Digital 8 Footage from a Sony Digital Handycam [DCR-TRV 330E, PAL] connected to the Mac via Firewire.

Could someone please tell me how I should configuring system preferences, User Settings and most importantly - audio and video settings?

I'd try Firewire uncontrollable device- if that doesn't work dub to DV instead. Haven't seen specific support for Digital 8 in years on FCP.

Digital 8 is DV -- same thing, different tape. Your computer can't tell them apart as they are exactly the same. Just connect your camcorder to the computer using DV presets, and if the device control works (it likely will) capture as normal, if the device control doesn't (and that is device-specific, not format related) then do a crash-capture.

Digital 8 is just DV on 8mm tape.
