According to apple´s support if you install Final Cut Studio 2 after having installed Logic Studio, the option to install Final Cut Pro may be dimmed so that it is not possible to install Final Cut Pro. Other applications can be installed.
This particular issue specifically occurs on systems on which Logic Studio has already been installed.

Resolution

Take the following steps to resolve this issue:
If it is still running, quit the Final Cut Studio Installer.
In Finder, navigate to /Library/Receipts/.
Locate the file named ProMediaIO.pkg and drag it to the Trash.
Run the Final Cut Studio Installer again.

    Also, if Logic is not the problem follow the steps below to completely reinstall a fresh copy of Final Cut Express.

    Open the Applications folder. 
    Drag the Final Cut Express application to the Trash. 
    Go to /Library/Receipts. 
    In the Receipts folder, select the "FinalCutExpress.pkg" file. 
    Choose View > as List to view the contents in a list. 
    Click the Date Modified column header so you can easily see all of the receipts that were installed at the same time as Final Cut Express. 
    Drag the FinalCutExpress.pkg receipt to the Trash, as well as any other items that have a modification date within 3 minutes of the FinalCutExpress.pkg's modification date. 
    Click the Name column header to sort the list alphabetically. 
    Drag any other receipts whose names begin with "Final Cut Express" to the Trash. 
    Insert your Final Cut Express installation disc and install Final Cut Express. 
    When finished, use Software Update (under the Apple menu) to update your software to the latest version.

    Are you sure you purchased the correct upgrade version 3?




  • mohammed marika thambi

    uninstall the previous version of your software and reinstall it new version then install anti virus

    -If you open Final Cut Express HD 3.0 on certain computers, you'll get a
    "Configuration Error" message that indicates that your computer is
    missing certain hardware or software, or possibly an AGP graphics card.

    In some cases the Final Cut Server client application may not open when
    you double-click the Final Cut Server.jnlp icon or Final Cut Server.app
    icon. This may happen after switching user accounts or restarting your
    computer from a volume other than the one you used to download the Java
    Web Start Final Cut Server client.



    Final Cut Server uses configuration data which refers to the
    administrative user that installed the software. This configuration
    data contains the User ID (UID) which is different than the username of
    the administrative user. There may be situations where the Final Cut
    Server configuration data does not match any existing UIDs of local
    administrative users. For proper functionality, make sure that the UID
    in the Final Cut Server configuration data matches the appropriate
    administrative user's UID.

    A new serial number can be generated in the event that yours is missing
    or invalid. Apple requires a valid proof of purchase to request a
    replacement serial number submitted via fax or email. The following
    guidelines will help you to determine what is best for you.Categories: Apple, Final Cut Studio

so you can convert your video files to .mp4.
you can use the third party software convert your video files to .mp4 format.
you can use Mod to Final Cut Express Converter.

Get Final Cut Pro 5.04 to communicate with my XH A1


Many HDV cameras and decks are able to play and record DV as well as the higher-resolution HDV format. Additionally, many of these HDV devices will attempt to automatically change their settings to match the format of the tape that it's playing. Here are some tips for using these types of devices with Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express.
Tip: Make explicit settings on your HDV device. Instead of using an "Auto" setting, make your own settings on your HDV device to keep the communication going between it and Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express. This also helps Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express keep things running smoothly with HDV devices that handle both DV-NTSC and DV-PAL.
For example, say you're using an HDV deck to capture footage from a tape that was recorded as DV-NTSC. Before capturing in Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express, make sure that you set the deck to DV mode specifically—don't rely on Auto mode. With some devices, you may need to disconnect it from FireWire to change the mode.
For a common capture workflow, this sequence of steps can provide the best results:
  1. Quit Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express if it's open.
  2. Insert your tape into your HDV deck or camcorder.
  3. Use the device's menus to set it to match the format that's recorded on the tape.
  4. Connect your HDV device to your computer with a FireWire cable.
  5. Open Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express.
  6. Choose an Easy Setup for DV or HDV (whichever matches the format recorded on your tape).
  7. Proceed to Log and Capture.
Tip: Quit Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express before changing modes. It's generally a good idea to quit Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express before you change the mode on your device from DV to HDV, or from HDV to DV, and then re-open the application again.
Tip: Use an Easy Setup to play back non-default HDV format footage on your HDV device. You can use Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express to make your HDV device play back footage in its non-default HDV format. For example, maybe you have a 1080i60 HDV device and want to play back footage that was recorded as 1080i50. Or perhaps you have a 1808i50 HDV device and you want to play back footage that was recorded as 1080i60. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Connect your camera to your computer.
  2. In Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express, choose an HDV preset Easy Setup that matches the format of the tape's footage (you don't need to restart Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express).
  3. Your device's LCD display should automatically display a switch to 60 or 50, indicating the type of media that's being played.
Playing back non-default DV format footage on your HDV device You can also use your HDV device to play back footage in its non-default DV format too. For example, maybe you have a 1080i60 HDV device and want to play back footage that was recorded as DV-PAL. Or maybe you have a 1080i50 HDV device and want to play back footage that was recorded as DV-NTSC. If so, follow these steps:
  1. Make sure that your device is in DV/DVCAM mode.
  2. Put your device into Play/Pause mode, then open the Log and Capture window in Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express.
  3. Make sure that your device's LCD (or other readout screen) displays the same format as your tape or Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express will misinterpret what type of device you have.
Tip: Avoid recording both HDV and DV formats on the same tape. Use separate tapes whenever you want to record in a different format. If you need to record over existing footage in a different format (for example, you have a tape with DV-PAL on it, but you want to record over it with HDV 1080i50), it's a good idea to black and code the tape, or completely record over the old footage with contiguous recording in the new format. If the tape contains even a second of, say, DV in the middle of an HDV tape (or vice versa), it could cause unexpected results later when you try to capture video from that tape.
For more information, see HD and Broadcast Formats and the Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express User Manual, available under the Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express Help menu
