Re: Connecting to a Mac

I had no problem with the photos and iphoto; however to run the movie/video files I had to down load a free codec from the apple/quicktime web site (i think it was an xvid codec).  hope this helps

I Have a Sony DCR-HC90 and I'm having trouble connecting my camera into my mac. I Have a usb cable but the camera won't connect to my computer

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, I am trying to import from my Canon MV 600 ( Tape not digital ) into a mac pro. I got the DV to firewire lead but the computer doesnt seem to recognise the camera. Many thanks Billy

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.
  • Disconnect 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
Hope this helps.

MacBook Pro/FCE does not capture video from XH A1 any more. Message: Cannot initialize HDV deck-please connect camera.

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.

PV-GS35 to mac connection problems

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.

Transfer to MacBook Pro from digital video camera

when you connect the camera to your mac via firewire, make sure you have an application open that will allow you to import the material.    The most common application being 'imovie'.
