    Hey guys...

    I have a sony hdr-sr5 hdd camera with sony's bluetooth clip on microphone.

    I record with this microphone and bring file to my mac but there is no sound.

    I have to manually extract the mp3 audio from the file and then bring into final cut pro so that i can now have both the sound and video to work with.

    If i just import the file to final cut pro there is no sound either

    If i use imovie to detect the camera and bring in the movie then once then i do have sound and video

    If i use the camera without the microphone i dont have the problem

    It appears that the sound is placed on a track that final cut pro does not recognize.

    Has anyone had this issue or could give me some insight as to what i should do .. or am i stuck just simply extracting the audio manually to bring into final cut pro.
