Camera not recording finished project from computer

Have a macbookpro and use FinalCutPro 6.0.2. I am trying to print to video but am not having luck. The camera is communicating with the computer, I have it set on VTR mode, but when I press "begin record automatically", it starts up the camera but does not record anything onto the tape. Any ideas?
All best, Gabriella

It stops recording by itself!


Two possible causes...your card is not a class 6 or better...card needs to be optimized by formatting it in the camera. This will erase it so download any pics first.

Connecting my Sony Camcorder CCD-TRV 108 to my computer


To do this you will need a firewire cable 4 to 6 pin, here a link:
http://www.amazon.com/Belkin®-Firewire-Cable-4-Pin-6-Pin/dp/B0016W3L3O/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&s=office-products&qid=1226166429&sr=8-3

you'll plug the 4 pin connector, that's the smaller one, into the DV port on the camera, then you'll plug the 6 pin into the computer's firewire port.
now open WMM, iMovie, Adobe Premire, whatever you are editing with:
imove: got to capture> video from camera, in the new one there should be a little button with a camera, just click that
WMM: Click record> from camera, then put your camera in playback mode, and hit record on WMM, start playing and BAM. same prcess for recording applies to pretty much all of them.

Capturing video & audio through s-video input .


Hi, try this, go to control panel-click sound and audio devices and ensure that your system is configured to the right devices for recording from your camera. The easiest way to run any of this equipment is to set all systems at default. and purchase a USB sound/video adaptor [cheap from china] and plug your camera into this when you wish to record from it. when finished, remove the adaptor the same as you would with any USB hot swap device, your computer will revert to the default settings. Next time you use your camera , plug it in and windows will auto detect it again. Goodluck. mistyman
