QuickTime 7.3.1 Capture Problems with FCP and GL2

FCP No Communication

Just posted to Apple support boards...

I am not too happy about not being able to capture with my Canon GL2.

I sent the GL2 back to Canon and got a new Firewire interface, got a brand new MacBook Pro.

I'm running QuickTime 7.3.1 and have a chain of La Cie Firewire drives connected to the MacBook Pro.

I purchased a Belkin FireWire Express Card to relieve the system of having to capture video.

Now when I connect to Log and Capture in FCP, I have a connection at first, then the connection is lost.

I got around it by capturing with iMovie.

The open issues that I saw over on the Apple Support boards are:
1. Canon never implemented Firewire correctly?

2. The new QuickTime broke FCP log and capture with Canon GL2?
Can someone reply who is addressing each of these issues? Thanks.

PS. I have found that placing the GL2 cable as the last cable on the LaCie chain, if connected to the MacBook Pro with FW 40, Not 800, sometimes works.

Note: I have no idea about what Canon has done with the Firewire port on the GL2. I hope they answer.
