Sony DCR-TRV280 & Final Cut Pro & Fire Wire
Hi folks,
So I got a new mac and had my Final Cut Pro program transferred over but it has the new 9 pin fire wire so I had to get a new 9 pin to 4 pin cable. Took a little research but its been done.

Now I still can't get the computer to recognize my camera; the VTR is not connecting. It's an older model, a hi-8 Sony DCR-TRV280 (Digital 8 Steady Shot HandyCam). The Final Cut Pro program is version 6.0.6.

I've tried changing the settings between DV and HDV and back again (making sure to match up the camera and program settings) as well as making sure it was set to NTSC 48 kHz.

Does anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks in advance.
