    Hey everyone.

    I got a Sony HDV HC9 today and I'm trying to upload some footage into Final Cut Pro.

    Now every so often it's coming up with "DV device cannot be initialized". I have no clue why this is. Is it something to do with the iLink being on or off?

    I have the import settings as 1080i50i so that shouldn't be a problem. I think i'm just doing something silly without knowing but it's driving me mad.

    Any advice?

    Make sure you have the camera connected and turned on BEFORE you launch FCP

    Quit FCP. Unplug and lug in camera. Turn on camera to VCR mode. Start FCP. Make sure import codec matches footage settings (through easy setup if you want). Capture footage.
