Question about Canon FS100 Digital Camera

Connecting the Canon FS 100 to my iMac

I just bought the Canon FS 100 and I am trying to connect it to my i Mac computer (about 5 years old) - to save the movies specifically to iMovie. I followed the instructions and using the provided USB cable and had no luck -- i Movie does not acknowledge that there is a camera attached.

When I followed the same procedure to get my photos into iPhoto, the computer recognized the camera and transferred the images perfectly.

My old video camera, a JVC, required a firewire to connect the camera to the computer so iMovie would recognize it. This firewire will not connect to the Canon FS 100. So, I believe the problem might be solved if a get a new Firewire cable that will connect to my Canon FS 100.

I have the same issue with Canon model FS10
The only thing I could find was a MOD converter
It does cost $29 but you can try before you buy and it worked for me.

Hi Kim,
Yikes, an Android phone on an iMac G5...
It is probably an upgrade or an update that was not compatible with the G5 Processor... That machine is going on 10 years old now...

Try connecting it to another computer, a friends or at work, to see of it connects properly... if so, it's end of the line for G5's ;-(

I Need drivers for iMac 10 that work with Micronet PHD16072u2f

Hi, seeing that this drive has both USB and FireWire connectors it does not need any drivers. - In fact I have never needed drivers for any external drive in all of my 20+ mac years.
First thing to check is that the drive is powering up. Can you feel it come on and off when you turn the power on and off?Try connecting via the FW or the USB in turn (never together). TYry different cables - there are poor cables of both sorts.
If there is still nothing, try connecting something else to the same connectors of the computer - does it show up?
Sometimes the built-in USB hub can throw a wobbley - as can the FW hub. Resetting the USB hub is normally done by rebooting the computer. Resetting the FW is a little more complicated and varies from Mac to Mac - so check out on the Apple support pages at the correct way to do it for your particular Mac.

Mac won't recognise canon drive

First of all, do not save any new file to camera's memory card.

Take out memory card, and connect it to a Windows computer using a card reader. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in Windows Explorer.
Download this camera photo recovery software
Install and open the photo recovery software, select the memory card, and click 'Start' button.

Loud fan noise

You may need to reset the SMC. Unplug all cables from your iMac including the keyboard, mouse, power cable, DSL, everything. Wait at least 5 minutes. Now plug the power cord in making sure not to be pressing the power button at the same time. Connect all cables and press the power button and start your iMac. If you still hear the noise then take it in for service.

Can't download

USB bad. If the footage is on hard drive rather than tape just browse the camera or import rather than capture. If difficulties seeing the hd maybe use a card reader known to work with mac. If it is on DV tape you need to connect to a dv / hdv out to fire wire, if this camera doesn't have one you will need to borrow some one's who does.
