Question about Mitsuba DV55 Camcorder

1 Answer

Mac camera driver

I bought a Mitsuba DV55F video camcorder. I'm using Mac OS X 10..3.9, and the software disk that came with the unit doesn't appear in my and refused to come out. I finally got it to eject, but this leaves me with the problem of not having a driver. I'm guessing that I can get a memory card and a card reader to transfer video to my laptop, but I'd like to avoid that extra step if I can. Is there a Mac OS X driver available for this camcorder?

Re: Mac camera driver

Wow... I was just googling to find the OS X driver for my new Mitsuba DV55F, when I can across this article.. I'm running 10.4.11, and my Mac recognizes the camera, and I can transfer videos and pics over through Finder, but iPhoto and iMovie don't seem to recognize it, so I figured it was a driver issue... Not surprisingly, my dealer disappeared in the night as well... That's what happens when you buy cheap cameras off eBay... ;) I'll come back and post a solution if I ever find one..

I need to download Drivers for my new silver Mitsuba DV3000Slv 16MP (interpolated) Sd/Sdhc Digital Camcorder, where can I get Drivers for it?

Does it have a fire wire connection if it does then you can use a software like windows movie maker or Nero to export your material to your desktop, but also some software wont work on windows 8 .

Mitsuba DV777 Driver

The camera doesn't need a driver to transfer the pictures/movies to your computer. Windows should open a dialog box asking what you want to do. The only "driver" I found was from
Both the DV500 and DV505 drivers listed under 'After01May 2008 are the same and look like the camera they are for is the same spec as the DV777

How do i download movies from a Panasonic camcorder onto a Mac. The CD provided with the cam is for Windows only. What software exists to down load and save movies from my ?


Try to use Apple iPhoto which is a part of ilife Suite.
If that doesn't help then best method is to use Windows Virtual Machine.

1. Install VMware Fusion for MAC.
2. Install Windows OS in VMware.
3. Boot Windows in VMware.
3. Connect your Camcorder to MAC and it will ask Do you want to Connect it with Windows VM or MAC.
4. Select connect to windows.
5. Install the Drivers from provided Camcorder CD to windows.
6. Now you can transfer Photos and Videos.

P.S. : Alternative method to use Windows on MAC is B0otcamp Drive. And you can also Bootcamp Partition on VMware Fusion which will run Faster than any other VM Machine.

Bootcamp Installation On :

OS X 10.6. :
OS X 10.5 :
MacBook Air :

Hope it Solves your Problem.

You can record to any DVD disk. The only difference between single layer and double layer is the amount of information you can put on the disk.

My mac OS 10.5 driver (disc) for Everio GZ HD7 camcorder?????

Hey Brett, unfortunately FCP and iMovie are looking for a device over Firewire or a capture card (whichever you have set up). The driver off of the disk is actually quite useless under any Mac Os 10. Video editing programs unless older or PC based rarely use USB for video transfer hence why none of the apps are locating the camera. Unfortunately you'll have to transfer the files via USB as data and use a program like MPEGStreamclip to transcode them to a file format those programs will understand. JVC has released updated software but it seems to do nothing at all. I hope this helps.
P.S. you may need the MPEG 2 Codec to do the conversions wether you're using MPEGStreamclip or another application.
