According to the specifications listed on FixYa, this camcorder has an iLink port (also known as Firewire or IEEE1394). Apple computers have long supported Firewire--indeed, it was the original connection type for the iPod.

I'm assuming you're using a relatively recent version of OS X, say 10.3 or later.

There are two sizes of Firewire socket, and you'll need a cable that suits your devices.  The socket on your camera will be the small, square-ish type; compare this to the one on your Mac. If the socket on your Mac is bigger, you'll need a "4-pin to 6-pin Firewire cable"; if not, you'll need a "4-pin to 4-pin Firewire cable". More details on Firewire, including photos of plugs and sockets, are on Wikipedia at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Firewire

Once connected, you should be able to use Apple iMovie, Final Cut Express, or similar to capture and edit your footage.

I have a Sony HDR-SR1 with video on the hard drive. When I connect it to my iMac via as USB cable, I can see the camera on my desktop, but can't seem to import anything via IMovie. What am I doing...


It is a Hard Disk type Camcorder. Follow the steps as mentioned on the Link given below to transfer the video from the Camcorder to a Mac Computer.

NOTE: Movie player applications must support MPEG-2 for standard-definition video or AVCHD for high-definition video to open and play these files. Refer to the software manufacturer of the movie player application you are using for additional information and any available updates.

The Apple Macintosh Web site offers MPEG2 Works 4 Advanced 4.2 for download.

The Apple Macintosh Web site has an MPEG-2 Playback component for Quicktime 6 or 7 available for purchase.

Troubleshooting information about importing MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 clips with Apple iMovie software is available on the Apple Macintosh Web site.

For the Apple Mac OS X operating system, DVD authoring software (Capty DVD/VCD 2 ) and MPEG editing software (Capty MPEG Edit EX) is available for purchase from the PIXELA Web site. These applications are for standard-definition video only.



Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
