FCP/Mac --> PPro/Win7

I have some HDV footage I've captured from tape on my Mac with FCP. My associate is editing on his PPro on Windows and he can't see any video from the Quicktime file, but he gets the audio. It's obviously a codec problem and I read about this in a few places but I didn't catch what the solution is.

His laptop doesn't have a firewire port otherwise I'd simply hand him the tape and camera and have him import it.

Should I be capturing it to a different codec in FCP that PPro/Win will recognize?

FCP's HDV codec is not present in windoze...you can get a codec for the PC that that works nicely here: Calibrated{Q} XD Decode but it's a little pricey. Also, If you capture in Prores, there is a Windows Quicktime plugin that will let windows quicktime read the prores file, I assume you could import it into PPro that way. / Battle Vaughan
