I have an apple laptop, how do I transfer from my camcorder to a dvd on my apple.


You do not need drivers to get the footage from tape to a Mac. You do require a firewire cable and use iMovie or Final Cut to capture.

Best HD Camcorder for Mac, iMovie, iMovie? 08, iMovie? 09


Recording daily life and interesting things with a HD camcorder becomes a trend for our people. They like to share these digital camcorder videos on Mac or PC with family and friends. However, selecting a good digital camcorder for Mac is not easy for green hand. Maybe more tips need paying attention, for example, the types of your camcorder and Mac, the version of iMovie on Mac, Mac and PC compability with digital camcorder and so on.

iMovie has been a Mac OS X only application bundled in the iLife suite of Macintosh applications since iMovie3. From 2007 to 2010, Apple developed iMovie to iMovie' 08, iMovie' 09, and iMovie for iPhone and iPod Touch. Luckily, iMovie' 08, iMovie' 09 are designed to work with a wide range of digital video devices and formats, including tape-based(use a FireWire cable, also known as IEEE 1394 or i.Link) and the latest tapeless camcorders that record to flash memory, a hard disk drive(HDD), or DVD media.

A list of Digital Camcorders Compatible with iMovie' 08, iMovie' 09 on Mac OS X
NTSC Camcorders(a video format used in North America, Central America, Japan, and parts of South America)
Canon: DC20, DC50, DC220, DC230, FS10, FS11, FS100, HF10, HF11, HF100, HG10, HG20, HG21, HR10.
JVC: GZ-HD10, GZ-HD30, GZ-HD40, GZ-MG330, GZ-MG67, GZ-MG255, GZ-MG555U, GZ-MG505U.
Panasonic: HDC-DX1, HDC-SD5, HDC-SD9, HDC-SD20, HDC-SD200, HDC-HS9, HDC-HS20, HDC-HS100, HDC-HS200, HDC-HS300, HDC-SX5, SDR-H50, SDR-H60, SDR-H200, SDR-S10
Sony: HDR-CX11, HDR-CX12, HDR-SR1, HDR-SR7, HDR-SR11, HDR-TG1, DCR-SR82, DCR-SR200, DCR-DVD308, DCR-DVD508, DCR-DVD403.
PAL Camcorders(a video format used in Europe, Africa, the Middle East, most of Asia, and parts of South America)
Canon: DC50E, DC220E, DC330E, FS10E, FS100E, HF11E, HF100E, HG10E, HG20E, HG21E.
JVC: GZ-HD10KR, GZ-HD30, GZ-HD40, GZ-MG255, GZ-MG67, GZ-MG155, GZ-MG330.

Although iMovie' 08, iMovie' 09 on Mac OS work with most of HD digital camcorders using MPEG-2 (standard definition), MPEG-4, AVCHD, and H.264 formats, not all tapeless camcorders are compatible with iMovie' 08, iMovie '09 because of the wide range of media types and the different ways manufacturers store video on these media types.

How to fix it? To meet people editing AVCHD, MOD files with iMovie, enjoying HD camcorder video on Mac, a powerful HD Video Converter for Mac is specially designed for people who need to convert AVCHD MTS/M2TS, MOD, TS, TOD, MKV files to iMovie MP4, MOV, DV for better editing. Besides, that Mac HD Converter is also the very choice to convert HD video like TP, TRP, M5S, TOD, MPEG2 HD, MPEG4 HD, MOV HD, WMV HD, AVI HD to Mac application: iTunes, iDVD, FCP, FCE, etc.

Can't transfer videos from JVC Everio camcorder onto my MAC


Share: How to import .tod files from JVC Everio HDD Camcorder to iMovie?

Requirements: iMovie (Part of the iLife 08 package)

Step 1: Connect the Everio to the Mac (Via USB)
Make sure you are powering the Everio from the mains before connecting your JVC Everio Camcorder.

Step 2: Playback on PC
Select “Playback on PC” on the Everio, once connected you will see the Everio HDD symbol appear on the desktop. The video files on the Everio are stored in the SD Folder/PRG***/MOV***.MOD.

Step 3: Open iMovie
Once you open iMovie, you will see that it recognizes the Everio straight away and will attempt to import your video.

You are now ready to use iMovie to edit your video files.

If need change .tod files to common video formats like mov, mp4, m4v, mpg, mpeg, dv, flv, avi, wmv, 3gp, mkv, mp3, aac, wma, m4a, etc. Mod Tod Video Converter for Mac is a good choice. The program can also convert mod tod to ipod, mod tod to iphone, tod to apple tv, tod to blackberry and more devices!
