Hi You still have Firewire - it's just hidden.Go to the Apple store and buy the Thuderbolt to Firewire adaptor(25UKP in the UK)Works beautifully It has a FW800 connector so you may need a new cable for your camera as well.

I have an older canon mini tape camcorder and my mac pro wont recognize it for uploading


You could try the cannon website to see if there are any driver updates for your model. Cannon may have a users forum, which you might be able to pin point the problem there, If that doesn't work try the mac website for updates etc.

Video tape will not load to PC when I connect USB from camera to PC only memory will load not video please help. I need to complete editing for Film and Television assignment. My PC is a Mac Pro Thanks...


You don't say what make/model your camera is. Most tape based camcorders (mini-dv) usually download better with a Firewire (DV) connection. Some mini-DV cameras only use the USB connection for stills (if they have one) and can only download video by Firewire. This is because you have to play the tape into the computer, not just copy a file.

Most PCs have a USB port, but no Firewire port. Macs often have a Firewire port but may not have USB.

Suitable Firewire (DV) cables can easily be found on Amazon or eBay. You will need the kind with a small (four pin) connector at one end and a larger (six pin) connector at the other.

Most PCs have a USB port, but no Firewire port. Macs often have a Firewire port but may not have USB. With desktop Windows PCs, you can fit an add-on Firewire interface card. This comes with a driver for the card. If your laptop doesn't have a Firewire socket, then you are probably stuck.

Not sure what cord to use to connect my mini dv to my mac.


Depends on the Mac unit you have. If your MAC has a firewire 400 port, then use the firewire cable that came with your camera. Just connect the cable to the camera and the other end to the mac. iMovieHD is already loaded - with the camcorder in "Play" mode, you will "Import" the video.
If your Mac does not have a firewire 400 and just a firewire 800, you need an adapter. Click on this link to see that adapter.
Thank you for using Fixya and your generous rating will be much appreciated.

What is red blinking light on Cannon ZR45MC screen? Will it show up on DV tape?


Hello, I just bought a canon zr45 today off a friend without the owners manual. I had the same problem. It is flashing because it needs a new 3 volt lithium battery. This is a back up battery. It is located underneath the regular battery pack. Take the regular battery pack off and you will see where it goes. I changed mine and it doesn't do it anymore. It shouldn't show up on your recordings. It didn't on mine. Also, you can download an owners manual for free off the internet. Just key in canon zr45 owners manual and you will see links that will take you there. I hope this helps.

Uploading video from my Cannon Elura 100 to my MacBook


try using the image capture utility when connected to the computer. canons are notorious for forcing you to use image utilities (picture wizard in windows and image capture in macos). my canon xsi did the same thing.

Camcorder importing - no manual


This is the same unit I have. Simply connect a 4-pin to 4-pin Firewire cable between the computer and the camera. (Port is under the lens, under a smal rubber cap. Once the connection is made, turn on the camera, and it should appear on your mac as a new fixed drive. Import your files normally from there.

Hope this helps!

How do I transfer a recorded tape to my computer


You need IEEE (Firewire) or "DV" cable to transfer video from the camcorder to your computer. The connection is "DV" and is located on the front of the camera next to the "S" port. The marketing for this camera was deceiving...most customers thought they could hook up the USB to their computer and upload video...well you can't

My new Imac won't recognize my cannon zr65 camcorder help please.


Some FireWire cameras do not play nice with other FW devices. Try unplugging the LaCie drive and any other FireWire device, then connect the camera directly to the Mac. iMovie should detect it then.
