Sony Handycam dvd201 and iMac G5

Does anyone know if there is anyway I can get the raw footage from my Sony Handycam DVD21 onto my imac G5. the camcorder does not have a Firewire connection nor is the USB connection recognized by the iMac. I also cannot load ImageMixer (Sony software) because it will only work on a PC platform. Any suggestion would be most appreciated!!

IMac OSX 10.4.1 doesnt recognize SONY handycam format


you would need to update by doing a software update ( apple at the top left --> software update ) update everything until you are at 10.4.11 and also update any other software it prompts you to - if you have an older version of quicktime with a serial key make sure you know what the serial key is as the later versions of quicktime will over write the older ones.

you can get perian which should help you with regards to video codecs :

Perian website

You can also download and install the divx and xvid codecs from these sites

divx here

xvid here

Also try VLC :

website here


If none of the above works then what file formats are the video footage clips and did you get any software with your cam to work on the mac if not then you should be able to use iMovie and or iDVD to help you with the video side of it.

Can't seem to transfer footage from my SONY HDR SR10 to my imac


I don't know if you would call this a solution but I do know that some computers or programs will not except certain cameras. For instance I have a Sony computer and the editing program I have is Adobe Premier which will not except footage from my JVC camera but will except the footage through my Canon camera. I think the Eggheads that design these programs just like to screw with people.

Sony handicam


I don't think you can use the unit for individual snapshots but you can take short segments of video then, download to your computer. After you have loaded segments of footage, you can then take individual snapshots from the footage. In a way this is better as you can select from many angles, positions ect.

Transferring video on cassette to Mac OSX


Are you transferring from cassette to memory card and then to Imac? certainly there is software supported by Imac to accomplish this. You can convert your videos to MPEG format using Imagemixer then try uploading with another program. Imac and OSX should have websites that list compatible software.
