I really need to load this footage into avid by this weekend and I have run out of trouble shooting ideas. For some reason or another my avid wont recognize that my camera is plugged in. So I tried it in Final cut and it didnt recognize it either. I tried a new firewire cable and still had the same result. I tried a different camera and still had the same result. I tried 2 diff programs, cables, and cameras what else could it be? Also usually when I plug in my camera it shows in ichat that I am able to video chat and that is no longer the case. PLEASE HELP!
