Okay, here's one. When my camcorder (Canon ZR 10) is hooked up to my laptop, both iMovie and Final Cut Express can see it. I can import footage into iMovie no problem. But Final Cut Express first says "No communication" and then when I still try to capture, I get an error screen that says "This operation could not be completed as there is no video." What gives? I've a) re-booted while the camcorder was still on, b) checked my firewire connection repeatedly -- it's fine since iMovie works okay, c) cursed repeatedly. Any thoughts why iMovie captures video ok but Final Cut doesn't?
