FCP 4.5 Capture problem

Hi guys

I am trying to capture footage into fcp 4.5 when I get the message that "capture has encountered a problem reading the data on the source tape. This could be due to a problem with the tape. capture has been aborted and the clip has been saved. " However the tape is not the problem as I can play the tape in imovie. I even captured some in imovie and imported it into fcp no problem.

I can capture up to a couple of minutes before I get this message.

I believe it must be someting to do with settings. I am set up for firewire pal .
I am using 2.3 G5 dual with 1 gb ram.

Any suggestions would be appreciated

Many thanks

Gary

Hi gary

check out the capture settings, and untick the timecode one, might be that.

Same Problem

Hey Gary did you ever come up with a solution to that problem? Because i am getting the exact same error message, and i have had no luck solving it. Its not a timecode issue , I know that, but it seems to be getting worse and its impossible to work at this point. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Brian

No I haven't found a solution yet but I have not been trying. I am just too busy at the moment that I have had to use imovie and prem pro on the pc. Hopefully I will have time over this weekend and if I find a solution I will let you know.

Regards

Gary

hey, guys, i've just run into this problem. i ended up capturing from the camera (an xl-2) directly to the hard drive. something i bought a deck to avoid doing. but it worked. now i want to figure out what the problem is so i can avoid this error in the future. here is the Error Message i get from FCP when i try to capture this footage from my Sony dvcam deck: "capture encountered a problem reading the data on your source tape. this could be due to a problem with the tape. capture has been aborted and your clip has been saved." i imagine it is a timecode issue, and will research this some more.
