I'm currently using a Sony HDR-SR10e camcorder AVCHD format and editing in Final Cut Express 4.
I wanting to use a Sony M15 HDV deck to capture in HDV mode but not having much success.
Is there any settings I need to enable me to do this.

All my footage is on an external hard drive and I'm wondering if its a problem daisy chaining the drive to the laptop and then to the deck.
The laptop i'm using is an Apple MacBook Pro 2006 edition with an intel dual processor and 2Gb of Ram.

Hope someone can help.
