    This is a great suggestion. Do you have a recommendation for where I can get drivers? Also, if this doesn't work, I do have a lot of research/debugging that is in writing that can save you/us some time.

    The driver suggestion is the best thing I've heard so far though.

    I'll look up JVC Drivers. Let me know if you have any other suggestions for finding Drivers.

  • Kitchens Mac Feb 20, 2008

    You're correct, the key word is "should". It should work. But it doesn't. Any way, I found a link that shows how to make it work on an older OS, older version of iMovie etc.

    I have a computer set up for that, so I'll try it.

    Here's the link
    http://media2.jvc.com/camcorder/macHD.mo...> in case this comes up again.

    The problems are multiple
    Drivers (Computer doesn't see video camera as a drive, but can see pictures that were taken)
    Quicktime update to 7.4.1 seems to have introduced a problem
    iMovie 08 is a problem

    It appears that Tiger, the older version of QT & iMovie may resolve the problem. I HOPE! I been working on this for about 40 hours.

  • Kitchens Mac Feb 20, 2008

    I finally got it to work but I had to go back to old OS, Old iMovie etc. The only bug I have left is I need to convert some of my videos.

    I need a Mac program that converts video to Apple intermediate codec. (AIC)

    I can't use Quicktime Pro unless it's an older version of QT, i.e. 7.1. The new version of QT pro apparently causes a problem when converting the videos.

    Please guide me to a sight that I can download/purchase a program that converts video to AIC.

    Thanks

Here you can find a relative user manual:
http://www.jvc.com/Resources/00/00/89/LYT1734-001A.pdf
Hint:
Try to import directly from the camcorder ("Import from camera..."), not from files ("Import Movies..."). File import (i.e. "Import Movies...") pretty much works the same as in iMovie '06, and does not let you import files directly from your camcorder. The way it should work is that you connect your camcorder with USB while iMovie is running, iMovie '08 detects it, and then brings up a camera import window with thumbnails of all the clips on your camcorder. There is a tutorial video called "Importing from a camcorder" here:

Have a nice day.

Mac

hi there

have you tried a different medium to which you transfer the videos? what i mean is a different software of your choice.

have you tried also using a driver which your cam is compatible for your mac? most probable cause that you cant import those videos is that your mac itself does not have the correct drivers for the specific files to be imported to.

hope this helps.

    once again,



    can i suggest that if you have another computer that uses windows, you can try and upload those footages there and just transfer the already downloaded footages from your pc(windows) to the other pc(mac). but this is only a suggestion. it may be a hsssle but its another way.
