If you didn't get a mac version of the HD writer with your camera I don't think there is any.

But

You can also transfer AVCHD clips to a Mac running OS X 10.4 and above using iMovie 08.

You need to get iMovie 08 which is the first version of iMovie capable of handling the complex AVCHD transport stream.

Please check if you are using DVD-R to the hd writer...

if you are using it .then its not possible

You can only use DVD-RW and must format the disc to VR format, not Video format.

High-definition video, or HD video, refers to any video system of higher resolution than standard-definition (SD) video, and most commonly involves display resolutions of 1280×720 pixels (720p) or 1920×1080 pixels (1080i/1080p).

The nexxtech hd portal 720p installation disk comes up on my mac desktop but when i click on it, it goes in to a file and i can't seem to instal anything everything either has no default application...


I have the same unit and it works fine on my Mac Mini. All the stuff on the disk is for PCs, not Macs. You don't need to install any drivers for this webcam when using it with a Mac. Just plug it in and it will work. If you are using it on Skype, for example, you have to select "preferences" / "sound" and then change the "input" to USB. That will make the microphone work. You can adjust the mic input volume in your Mac "System Preferences" / "Sound." This is one of the few cameras out there with a mic that works through the USB, so don't give up on it too easily!
I get a very slow frame rate with this camera, but I've had the same problem with every other webcam I've plugged in!! Otherwise the quality is fine. If anyone knows why my frame rate is so slow, I would appreciate your ideas!

Can't view or editvideo on my pc or mac computer


You need a PC with a fast core 2 duo or quad core processor, plus a NVIDIA Geforce 8400 or better grade graphics processor to play AVCHD files in native format. To convert them to other formats, a similarly strong PC and AVCHD compatible editing software also helps. Nero, Ulead, Vegas, iMovie, and Pinnacle offer competing programs. But make sure your PC is adequately powered.

Start "Disk Utility" and "repair disk permissions on all disks.  Restart the Mac and it should fix.   I don't believe one ever needs to load a driver on a Mac for any card reader.   It should work as plug and play.
Good luck.
