Try plugging it in BEFORE turning the computer on. I had a problem mounting my firewire external drive and when I went to this method it worked.

Good luck!!

Transferring data/programs from Mac book to iMac using Ethernet cable. All was going well till last minute, and it has been stuck on that for 3+ hours. Don't know what to do. Help please Elise


Assuming the MacBook has FireWire, get a firewire800 cable. PLug it into both Macs FireWire ports. Shut down MacBook, restart and hold T key = target disk mode. MacBook will appear as any other mounted external drive on your desktop. *From there, you can either manually drag files over or open Migration Assistant on the iMac and migrate user/data/ apps.

Firewire connector doesn't match


It sounds like you may have one of the newest MBPs that doesn't have a firewire port. If that is the case, it is still possible to connect firewire peripherals through a Thunderbolt to Firewire adapter cable.

Macbook pro doesnt recognize the panosonic pv-gs9 when connected with firewire


I take it that your macbook pro has imovie on it. If you open up imovie and plug in your camcorder it should recognise the camcorder and give you access to putting the movie onto your mac. Have a look at http://www.apple.com/support/imovie/ it should help.

Hi, I'm wondering if you can help, I have a Sony DCR-TRV340E camcorder and wish to take the video footage from one of the tapes and record/stream it onto my MacBook pro. I've tried using the USB cable...


*reason for not streaming the video: its because you're using the wrong type of cable to stream it to a macbook

*type of cable needed: you need a firewire cable to stream videos from your camcorder to your macbook.

*please make sure to check if your macbook has a firewire(IEEE) port on it and also make sure what type of firewire port it has( 4 pin or 6 pin firewire port)


*check your macbook specification for a firewire port and make sure to check how mny pinslot it has before buying a firewire cable.

* the other end of a firewire cable would surely fit the camcorder and the other end would depend on the firewire port available in your macbook.

* you would also be needing an application on your macbook that would record streamed videos.

Macbook not recognizing camcorder


I had this problem when first plugging in my Canon zr80 to my Mac. What I did first was (if you have it) open up the program Imovie in you're applications menu. Then plug the firewire cable into both the camera and computer. Turn the camcorder on and set it to play(VCR). Once this happens you should see a "DV in" on the camcorders screen, followed by a blue window on you're computer. The rest should be easy.

My computer do not recognized my Sandisk Cruzer Micro 1.0 GB.


I had the same exact problem on my 8G card. It worked fine in the camera, but when I plugged it into the card reader it flashed once and then the light went off. So, I put the card back in the camera and ran a USB cable from my camera (there was a port on the side of my Cannon Powershot that was smaller than a USB, but I don't know what to call it) to my computer. When I turned the camera power on, the computer was able to read the 8G card while it was inside the camera. I downloaded everything to my computer at that point. Hope this helps! I got the chord from my external hard drive and that fit from the camera to the computer.
