Original topic post is from iMovie 6 HD, External Video, External Audio...can't get it
The DV camera is a Panasonic NV-GS80E. My external audio interface (F-Control Audio FCA202) has an auxiliary FireWire port. I run the camera's FireWire cable into this port, and then connect the interface's FireWire cable to my MacBook. All very straightforward. It just doesn't work.
Suspecting problems using two FireWire units, I circumvented the audio interface and plugged the camera directly into my MacBook. Then, resetting the sound preferences, I connected the mixer directly to the computer's line input. This does not work, either.
