Capturing Video

I've had a lot of trouble capturing video from my Sony HDR-HC1. I thought it was because Final Cut Pro HD didn't recognize the camera. I just upgraded to iLife 6 to get the new version of iDVD (to solve another problem) and discovered that iMovie HD did work with the camera - mostly. Then I tried Final Cut Pro HD again, and it worked! After a fashion. Seems there's a problem in the FireWire cable; because if I movie it slightly then the connection is broken. Which could explain why I was having troubles to begin with.

Yet, I didn't have problems with my other camera and the same it could be a problem with the camera's jack...

The pain of video editing!
