I've been using Final Cut Express 3.5 HD for awhile now and it's been great. I trust that it will. Yes. Or is it > just that this is a worrying message and you want > to make sure everything is okay? weblink
Each chapter presents a complete lesson in an aspect of video editing and finishing, with hands-on projects to complete as you go. I didn't want to eliminate the pop-up without trying to understand why it was being displayed in the first place. Whenever I start up FCP I get the message: Unable to locate the following external devices: Apple Firewire PAL etc... Quit FCP. https://discussions.apple.com/thread/2596146?tstart=0
So I don't think the problem you are having is because of iMac limitations. The FIRST thing to check is to make sure your Mac can "see" the camera by looking in the System Profiler.

The fix? I just added a new Western Digital My Book Studio 1 TB external hard drive via the firewire 800 port and my problems begin. None of my FCP settings have changed and trying different firewire cables hasn't helped either. For whatever reason, the FireWire port on my iMac had an issue with the Panasonic AG-DVC60 camera.

I read that you're supposed to use media manager to move the files or there could be dropped frames. Anyone???? --ken Reply Quote Re: Unable to locate the following external device (January 26, 2010 06:57AM) Raj Hi Ken, Well, you are not going to believe it, but I was able I've also read that because of the limited protocol used by Canon cameras, my capture device/deck is a small Canon mini dv, I will not be able to have the camera Your camera must be listed here if Final Cut Pro is to have any hope of seeing it.
But wait, if that weren't enough I still can't capture.

Now when I try to open Final Cut I get the usual message window, " unable to locate the following external devices: Apple Firewire NTSC (720x480)" so I then click on
Turn your external device off/on. have a peek at these guys Anyone out there have any experience with this ? The program won't start up and there's no delay. I am using i.LINK cable on Imac G5.
Green Dog02-17-2008, 02:45 PMThanks Ram S.O.S... Good luck! I've read that the iMac, I have the 2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, has only one bus that runs either 400 or 800 MHz. http://netfiscal.com/final-cut/final-cut-pro-7-unable-to-locate-external-device.html So it was suggested I get a firewire 800 PCI card in order to free up the other bus.
For the purposes of this lesson, you will single-click the Final Cut Express icon you placed in the Dock in Lesson 1. Do you think I have to blast away the FCP preferences? The deck, my cheap little Canon mini dv camera, is connected to the Firewire 400 port and the WD hard drive is connected to the Firewire 800 port.
Be sure to get a powered FireWire hub (one that has a plug that plugs into the wall) as I believe the problem I was having was that the camera was I've gotta get this resolved asap, I've got 7 hours of footage from a project that needs to be captured in the next couple of days. You might double-click the application icon in your Applications folder or double-click a Final Cut Express project file. Final Cut, newly loaded, will still not recognize my deck.
