I have a Mini DV 1394 (firewire) cable that I plugged from the camera into my G4. It did not create a folder on my desktop, so I figured something was wrong. I tried using a Dazzle bridge, but that didn't work. I don't think I need the bridge anyways, as the camera has the 1394 outlet. Couple quick questions: 1. Does something need to be configured on Final Cut Pro to help recognize the video? If so, what needs to happen? I opened up Final Cut but I couldn't get the software to recognize the camera being connected. Does Final Cut (or another software) need to be used to get the computer to recognize the connection? 2. Is there a configuration/setting on my G4 that needs to be set to recognize the video camera? If so, where should I go on the computer? Should I go into System Profiler to check for a connection? Thanks in advance. I haven't tried any video stuff in a long time and I don't remember how to do anything.
