Question about Apple MacBook Mac Notebook
I just bought a MacBook (not the Pro) and I cannot upload the video from my Cannon Elura to the computer. It isn't even recognizing that it connected to the USB. There have been some forums suggesting FireWire or card, but there isn't even a location for adding the device. Any suggestions? Thanks for your help!!
I am beginning the same search, amandh, but I suspect the news will be bad. The Canon DV cameras are built to upload still images via USB and video footage via Firewire, but MacBooks have left the Firewire protocol behind, just like SCSI and floppy disks. USB and Firewire are apples and oranges, and to convert one to the other, you need a translator of some sort, and the fix won't be a new type of cable from Radio Shack

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.
