Question about Canon ZR100 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
HI - I plug into the DV port on camera with firewire to my mac. nothing! it doesn't seem to recognize it at all. do I need a specific driver? i cannot find a driver for macs anywhere. Please help! thanks
Unfortunately, it looks as if you may have one of the macs that just doesn't want to co-operate. If the FW cable is brand new, i highly doubt you've got a defective cable. After doing a Google search, Canon knows of this problem and hasn't offered any real support or a solution. I could only assume it's the camcorder and not the mac. Give me another day or so and I'll get back to ya, I'll see if I can borrow my friends camcorder and try to get it to work on one of my other macs.
In the meantime, try opening imovie , connect the camcorder while it's off, turn it on and set up imovie as if you were about to capture ntsc footage. Next play the tape in the camcorder and see if imovie recognizes it then.
