Is there a way to make it so when i capture HDV clips in FCE HD 3.5.1 it does not cut the clip at the scene change? i can not work with 50 clips each time i need to work on footage, that seems absolutely ridiculous

Do each of your clips on tape start with 0:00:00;00? If so, Final Cut does not like timecode breaks and will automatically make a new clip when the new timecode starts. The easiest thing would be to allow more pre and post roll when shooting so that the timecode stays continuous, or if you have the time you could stripe the tape with continuous timecode before shooting (though with DV tape it's best not to run it too much before shooting).

I don't know about FCE HD, but in FCP (4.0+) you can disable the "Make new clips on timecode break" but any clip after the first break will have audio drift.
