Okay, search for avi files or dv or m2v or whatever it's set to capture and see where they are located. Then you don't need a filename. Or if it requires it, try *.qt or whatever. that will work on unix (osx)

I'm sorry, I have no idea. :)

Just check the settings in your software and see what the location is set to and the filetype for capturing.

Well location is just scrath settings and like said, they did not show on that hard drive.
File extention or type, can't find anything referencing that.

Okay, I just checked with a friend. He said dv/dvcpro unlimited size, ntsc, quicktime files by default.

Hope that helps you. I wish someone else would jump in here. There's always like 5-600 people on this forum.. :)

Exactly, just search for *.mov and you should find where the files went.

Have you tried a regular DV capture? (this is an HDV camera right?)

Can you capture with the camera in camera (vs VCR) mode?

I don't imagine there would be a problem with an industry standard data stream from a specific camera, but I've seen stranger things I guess.

I have the camera in play mode and just play. correct no?

but there may be this issue that fcp express needs to approve each and every camera. never knew this!

this sony camcorder is only deck have right now.

the .mov search not so good, because turns out I have billion .mov clips saved from internet.

Problem solved, or should say mystery novel solved.
Info provided by Tom Wolsky (he's author of FCP books).

The 10.4.9 upgrade has conflict with Spotlight, but setting privacy to capture folder solves issue (as workaround) -- a workaround I will have to do for long time being not planning on upgrading the OS until G6 computer comes out.

Now is that one of the most arcane things you have ever heard? Wonder how anyone even figured it out.

PS, someone mentioned setting to uncontrollable device, which I did not have to do, but curious on that -- isn't capture now, the same idea? with capture now you are controlling with camera.
