there is no way that you HAVE to change it to 30 frames per second.
it may sound stupid but did you try to capture with I movie? I usualy go to this when I have problems with my timecode or my tape is corupt. Unlike final cut, I movie ignores "errors" and just keeps capturing as a dv stream. I am sure it will ignore the 60 fps and just capture as a digital equivalent of dv stream.
also I am about 85% sure that there are settings in your "easy set up" that you can customize. make a project with 720P- NTSC with 60 FPS as your frame rate
