My new Imac won't recognize my cannon zr65 camcorder help please.
I know the firewire ports are working I've tested them out, I know the cable isn't the problem I've hooked this camera up to my PC, with no problems. For some reason the mac also knocks off my Lacie harddrive when I hook up the camcorder. I've tried powering down and up again with everything hooked up. No luck. When i have the camcorder hooked up and check Mac settings it says it's a undetectable device.

The problem is not with the camcorder. The problem is with the capture settings.
You can capture video via firewire or USB. Imovie has a capture mode that syncs with nearly any camcorder. Roxio Toast will also sync with a camcorder. Be sure the camcorder is connected and that the computer recognizes it. It may take a few on-off cycles to sync itt.
Hi You still have Firewire - it's just hidden.Go to the Apple store and buy the Thuderbolt to Firewire adaptor(25UKP in the UK)Works beautifully It has a FW800 connector so you may need a new cable for your camera as well.
Verify support and download drivers from your sound card manufacturer's website. Open up Mac System Profiler by clicking the Apple in the top left, then about this mac, then go in to more information. Connect the firewire sound card and see if it becomes detected but is simply unknown. This will be a sure fire way of determining problem is with lack of drivers.
You can't, the firewire hardware is on the motherboard itself. The only way to replace the firewire port is to replace the whole motherboard. If it's still under warranty take it to an Apple store and they should do it free of charge.
It will not appear as an attached hard drive. If you access it through imovie you should be able to access it. The article here should give you some pointers on the process http://www.iskysoft.com/article/import-camcorder-video-to-mac.html Hope this helps.
You can import directly to your imac using usb or firewire. Connect the camera using either of the interfaces and then open up imovie in your applications folder. Once open go to the file menu and then down to import from camera and then your can import from the window that comes up. If you need any more information you can get video tutorials from the help menu. Hope this helps.
Hi Krystine. If your imac has firewire ports then look on ebay for an Apple iSight Camera.If you haven't got Firewire - and even if you have. it's wqorth looking here http://agent.liquiddigital.com.au/
This is a USB version of the Apple iSight in all but name. I've seen it working and can vouch for its quality.
& is now not even showing on my desktop along with imovie Sounds like your Camera is not mounting the first thing I would try is unplugging all USB devices if it USB or all Firewire devices if it is Firewire and try it.Try a different port.Try a different Cable.
YOur camcorder will have to have a 1394, firewire or ilink port. they are all the same thing ( firewire ) , bur sony calls it ilink so they dont have to pay apples licensing fees. If not, you will need a sony8 video tape deck with firewire out.
