I've been using a Sony FX1 with a 1.5Ghz Powerbook, using iMovie.

A/V -> DV set to ON
iLINK CONV set to ON (HDV -> DV)

[ Can someone clarify these settings for me? I haven't been able to get iMovie to digitize HD video..only downconverted DV ]

All of a sudden, iMovie can't communicate with the FX1.

I was doing an edit..digitized some video. Then, it quit syncing with the FX1. I have a Sony Digital8 camcorder..& it syncs to it fine.

Is there something wrong with the FX1, or are my settings wrong?

Someone suggested deleting the preferences file for iMovie. I tried it, but that didn't help.

I'm using the FX1 in a dusty environment (desert offroad racing):

[ see the Robby Gordon video ]

Maybe the FW connector is fouled up because of the dust?

I don't what's going on..

Any suggestions?
