Panasonic pv gs 180 can't import into imovie

I have my pv gs 180 camera connected with a firewire cable to my macbook pro. Using iMovie 8... it won't recognize the camera. I've also tried older version of iMovie (4) on an older mac... also won't work. I've tried different cables. My camera manual says it is mac compatible... any advice?

Hi, I managed to down load mine by connecting with a firewire and setting the camera to playback mode (not PC), opening imovie, turning the camcorder on and selecting file -' import from camera". a screen came up then I started playback on the camcorder and was able to select import from the screen on the imac.

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.

I have a MacBook pro and no software for my computer to recognize this camera. Is there a place I can download the stuff I need.


The cord that comes with the camera is a USB cord. USB on this camera is used only for downloading still images. You need to get a Firewire cable and use that. Once you hook up the camera through Firewire, open up iMovie and turn the camera to VCR mode or turn it on. It should pop up with a window asking you to import.

Need assistance transferring video to imac


The Panasonic PV-GS12 will transfer video in video record mode and video playback mode using the DV connection (IEEE) Firewire port. PC Mode is restricted to memory card access via USB. If after connecting it in this manner if it does not work try this. With everything connected via firewire and iMovie running. switch the camera to PC mode and the import window should pop up. You may get a comunications error and if you do then switch to playback mode. The import window should stay open and you can control your camera with the iMovie controls.

JVC videocamera isn't seen in Finder on MAC using Firewire.


Hi, Sorry you are having problems,
You are really really close, be sure the camera is plugged in and turned on on preview mode and then launch ( Open ) the iMovie application on your Mac, the iMovie application will recognize the camera and probably prompt you right away if you want to import video from the camera.
There you go, it's that easy...
