Do you have another camera that you can use for testing? If so, try connecting that one and see if you get a picture on the Mac. If so, I'd guess a blown Firewire socket on the camera. If not, try a different firewire cable. If that doesn't fix it, suspect the firewire port on the Mac. If it's a Mac Pro, you might try adding a third-party FW card to the system. If some other type of Mac, you may need to send it in for repairs.

If you've completely ruled out hardware problems, did you upgrade QuickTime, recently? I've seen that that sometimes hoses the connectivity between Macs & cameras.

I have tried to connect my Canon XM2 to my IMac via firewire, but it is not 'seen' by IMovie, FCE or FCP, so I can't capture anything. Thanks


Open the System Profiler on the Mac and establish if the camera is connected to the Mac's firewire BUS. If not, try another cable and also test is the camera's firewire port is working. It's either a cable or socket issue. Some cameras require that the menu of the camera be set to output over firewire, check this as well.

Intermitant failure of the firewire port


It's quite possible you have a FireWire port with hardware problems. The fix is somewhat costly, because it requires a logic board replacement. You need to bring your machine in for service.

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.

Uploading video from my Cannon Elura 100 to my MacBook


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.
