How can I get FCP X recognizing Canon VIXIA HF R62 AVCHD video?
“I’m using FCP X on my MacBook Pro running Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite. When I connect my Canon VIXIA HF R62 via the USB cable, FCP X fails to recognize my camcorder. The strange thing is the Canon icon and SD card icon both show up on my desktop but FCP X isn’t recognizing the camcorder as connected and therefore won’t import the files. When I try to manually import the files from the SD card, FCP X says there are no recognizable files, although the AVCHD files are definitely there. This issue is consistent with all my recordings and not just on one SD card. I wrote Canon and they have no idea why this occurring, claiming it’s an Apple issue. Any idea what’s going on and how I can solve it? Any ideas? Please help. Thanks.”
