You can't use their software on a Mac. Too bad, but alas.
I borrowed a Panasonic SDR-H40 to make a video reportage about my best friend's wedding, so I really had to find a way to make it work.
This is what I did to work around it. There is actually a topic about this problem in the apple support site here - the solution they offer comes down to:
You will need to convert that format into a DV format that imovie can use.

MPEG Streamclip (
http://www.alfanet.it/squared5/mpegstreamclip.html) is free and Apple's QuickTime MPEG-2 Playback Component http://www.apple.com/quicktime/mpeg2/
is about $20.00. They are the tools that you need to download to convert these files.
Once you have done that, export to DV Stream (.dv) and import it into iMovie.

I think that, if you look a bit further, there will surely be free alternatives; for instance, you could give 'ffmpeg' a try. I have never been very lucky with that tool. This MPEG Streamclip, however, works very well.
A hint: I noticed that the video that I import from the camera looks jagged around the edges, especially when the image is moving fast. You can eliminate this by checking the "Deinterlace Video" option in the DV export dialogue. I also checked the "Split DV stream in segments", because I will be using it with iMovieHD v.6

How do I download videos from my Panasonic SDR-H80 to my Mac? I have the CD (VideoCam Suite 2.0) that came with the video camera but when I insert it and the icon shows up on my desktop it does not pop up...


I had similar problem. Could not see the files in the DCIM folder. But when I opened iMovie I see the files and can upload them to iMovie just fine. Unfortunately, the Panasonic manual sucks when it comes to instructions for Mac users. All they talk about is using the VideoCam Suite 2.0 but that is only for PC users. Mac users just use iMovie.
