No Data from Device?

Ok so still new to the whole FCP scheme of things.

I go to capture footage from my Sony FX7
and when i click play on my camera and than "Capture>Now"
I get this message

"Capture was aborted due to lack of incoming data from device. Check your connections and that the deck is playing."

I have a 27" iMac which I bought about a month ago
I have done "Easy set up - HDV1080i50"

I shot in HD, and I can press play in the Logging screen and it will play on the screen of my camera so the camera is connected but I can never receive a picture on the logging screen.

I have captured before but never using HD only DV. So im not quite sure what the goer is.

Any help would be awesome, as im a beginner when it comes to FCP.

Cheers Sam

Normally the Easy Setup is the safest way of setting something up.

That being said.

Try to go in the menu bar to Final Cut Pro - Audio/Video Settings and there you have a selection Device Control or something. Try a couple of different ones out, and see if that makes a difference.
