Maybe this FAQ will help ya? Problem: Camcorder will not connect to iMovie - No camera attached Possible Solutions: * Are you using a 4 to 6 pin firewire cable? That is the ONLY thing you can use. No USB cables or anything else * Are you using a compatible camera? Still cameras that take movies are NOT a DV camera * How new is the cable? If it is pretty old or you have kinked, it you may need another one * Is the camera in DV mode? It should be. (Usually in the menu options somewhere) * Have read ALL of Apples help topics on this If your good with all the above: 1. Close iMovie 2. Delete all iMovie plist files for iMovie located in Home/Library/Preferences 3. Plug the camera in to the wall (electricity) 4. Make sure you have a good firewire cable and plug it in to the Mac from the camera 5. Turn off your camera 6. Reset your pram 7. When the Mac is booting, power on the camera 8. Start iMovie Sony camcorder special fixs: 1. Turn your camcorder to Play mode. 2. Press menu button (or relevant touch-screen button) 3. Click the 'ETC' item and then to CONTROL. 4. Select i-link (and not IR). or 1. Turn your camcorder to Play mode. 2. Press the Menu button (or relevant touch-screen button) 3. Scroll down the Menu to the 'ETC' option, if there is one 4. Click the 'ETC' item and choose 'VIDEO EDIT' if it's there 5. Click 'VIDEO EDIT' and 'MARK 1 IN' may appear 6. Click on 'MARK 1 IN' and then exit from the Menu options, by pressing the Menu button again Your Sony cam should now work OK with iMovie. * Reason? The camera and Mac can't decide which device is giving the FireWire instructions, and which is supposed to be receiving and acting on them. Using this sequence (above) lets the camera receive instructions from iMovie.

According to the specifications listed on FixYa, this camcorder has an iLink port (also known as Firewire or IEEE1394). Apple computers have long supported Firewire--indeed, it was the original connection type for the iPod.
I'm assuming you're using a relatively recent version of OS X, say 10.3 or later.
There are two sizes of Firewire socket, and you'll need a cable that suits your devices. The socket on your camera will be the small, square-ish type; compare this to the one on your Mac. If the socket on your Mac is bigger, you'll need a "4-pin to 6-pin Firewire cable"; if not, you'll need a "4-pin to 4-pin Firewire cable". More details on Firewire, including photos of plugs and sockets, are on Wikipedia at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Firewire
Once connected, you should be able to use Apple iMovie, Final Cut Express, or similar to capture and edit your footage.

There are no drivers as far as i know, but you can still use it via the firewire. Firewire suports speaming video from your Sony, usb dont.
