Hi I have got a Canopus Advc-55 and am having serious issues with it.

I use final cut to edit. Whenever I plug it in with the occupying firewire cable it either never registers it, or is a dirty dirty black and white. At one point i got colour, but since there its rare I get anything.

I have tried it with imovie too. It registers when i first open it, then fails to register again. Again this is black and white.

Can anyone help? Or know the settings required to capture on with final cut?

Hope someone can help. This is frustrating.
