I am trying to down load video on dcr-pc101e pal tape to my mac. I have connected via usb but the mac does not seem to recognise the camera. How do I successfully download video to mac?


Use a firewire cable to connect your camera to your Mac. Have your camera at the place you want to start copying and put it in play back mode. Open iMovie in your Mac. In the iMovie window, move the little blue button to the left (to the camera icon). Then click the Import button at the bottom of your picture. If you haven't used iMovie before play around with it. It's a great movie editing program.
Good luck!

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

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.

Does the sony DCR-HC20 supports Macintosh computers? i have this camcorder and i recently got a new mac, can i find drivers for this camera and drivers that are for mac??


You shouldn't need drivers for this, just start iMovie and plug in via a 4pin to 6pin FireWire cable, then power up the camera
iMovie will offer basic control of the camera to import the footage as QuickTime files.

Software for applemac


Hi, Well, congratulations on the new Mac upgrade.
You will be pleasantly surprised to hear that there is no mac software for any video camera.......
Because all the necessary software for any and all digital video cameras is built right into the MacOS and the iMovie application and the iPhoto Application.
So, all you have to do is connect your camera to your Mac, using the cable that came with your camera, either firewire or USB turn on the camera and then launch iMovie and the Mac will automatically recognize that a camera is connected and it will ask you if you want to import...
Voila Fantastic merveilleux hooolala !!

Camcorder to Mac Sony dcr-hc32


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.
