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.

Not connecting to Mac iPhoto


Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use iPhoto or any other photo cataloging program.

Try connecting the camera directly to the computer, without going through a hub. If that doesn't work, then buy a card reader.

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.
