    Hi,
    Im trying to capture video from an old Sony Handycam using Video8 Tapes. I've connected it via AV cable to my Sony PD-170 and then with Firewire to the computer. When I try to capture on FCE it says "no communication" and does not detect the second camera.
    Any help?
    Thanks

    Use the PD-170 to record the video from the analogue source to a Mini DV tape and then capture the Mini DV tape.
