Intova Sport HD camera model SP1 has no driver software since the camera is plug and play, compatible with either PC or Mac. If you are having issues connecting your camera to a computer in order to download images, please contact Intova by email, email@example.com or phone, (808)837-0074 and we will help.
USB will only download still photos or movie shorts stored on a card. eg memory stick.
If no card is in the camera then no connection.
If you wish to capture movies stored on the tape, you will require a firewire cable to connect.
Use iMovie to capture the footage or another Mac application like Final Cut if availble on your Mac.
Hi in order to get footage off your camera through Firewire i.e DV you will have to use a software to capture the footage. You can use iMovie to capture the footage off the camera. Open Apple System Profiler (it's in the Utilities folder) and check to see if your camera appears in the FireWire section.
If your camera is connected via FireWire and is turned on, follow one or
more of these tips to re-establish the connection to the camera.
Turn the camera off and back on again.
the FireWire cable from your computer and reconnect it. Do the same at
the camera as well. If the camera is connected through a FireWire hub,
try connecting the camera directly to the computer.
Some cameras need to be set to "VTR", "VCR", or "DV" mode in order to
communicate with a computer. Check your camera's documentation for
information on how to set your camera to this mode if needed
Play the tape on the camera before connecting it to the mac and loading up the software. You could always see if iMovie is giving the same error message too... This usually fixes the problem for me and usually arises when switching between SD and HD on the camera.
Hi, I managed to down load mine by connecting with a firewire and setting the camera to playback mode (not PC), opening imovie, turning the camcorder on and selecting file -' import from camera". a screen came up then I started playback on the camcorder and was able to select import from the screen on the imac.
Do you have another camera that you can use for testing? If so, try connecting that one and see if you get a picture on the Mac. If so, I'd guess a blown Firewire socket on the camera. If not, try a different firewire cable. If that doesn't fix it, suspect the firewire port on the Mac. If it's a Mac Pro, you might try adding a third-party FW card to the system. If some other type of Mac, you may need to send it in for repairs.
If you've completely ruled out hardware problems, did you upgrade QuickTime, recently? I've seen that that sometimes hoses the connectivity between Macs & cameras.
