Imac capure problems with sony dcr-vx2000e

Hi!
when i try to capture video with my sony dcr-vx2000e onto my brand new imac i get the following problem:
the mac acknowledges the exact model of the camera and sees it online, i can push ''play'' from the capture window (finalcut. premiere and imovie...i tried all of them) but i just get either a blue screen or a black screen depending on the program. i can never see or hear what's on the miniDV.
also, if i push ''play'' from the capture window, the capture window freezes and only goes back to normal once i manually push ''stop'' on the camera.
could this be a problem with video drivers? i've never seen anything like this to be honest, especially with something as simple as a firewire connected camcorder for capturing miniDV footage.
any help would be greatly appreciated!
thanks
rené

USB streaming does not work for Windows Vista. Use the firewire/ilink connection instead.

SOURCE: HVX200 shot footage - viewing footage on consumer grade camera

You can only view hd footage on hd devices. so if you recorded hd footage onto a tape, you will not be able to view it on a standard def camera, ie the dvx100b. The footage should not be harmed. Now if you are trying to view via p2 card over the firewire, whole new scenario.

Hard to say without seeing it and more details of the video coding of the files you recorded but I think you shot it interlaced and you are trying to edit/view progressive, or the field dominance is wrong.

Have a look here, this should sort it either way

Change brands of tapes. If persists, it's most likely time for new video heads.

clean the inside of the tape mechanism with isopropyl alcohol, its great stuff, heads and running bars - all metal parts. Clean off residue before putting a tape in again. and use a new tape for tests if poss

Sony DCR-HC38E Exporting miniDV video to computer


I had a similar problem with my Sharp camorder.
The preview window on XP simply displays corrupted images.
At the end, I bought a different firewire card and it worked for me.

Good luck.
