Importing Video to a Mac


XL2s are notorious for issues in interacting with final cut.
Simply put, sometimes it will work, sometimes it won't. But - there's a way around it.
Change the capture settings preset to 'non-controllable device'. Use the shuttle controls on top the handle of the XL2 to play back the footage as you wish. when you want to capture, click 'Capture Now' - It should do the trick.

You don't actaully need the camera. If the DVD is not copyrighted simply put the DVD disc into your mac and copy the biggrest file (usually marked video.ts) You can then drag and drop this onto your Final Cut timeline.
