My camcorder won't work with our apple mac g5-cs3 computer


The problem is not with the camcorder. The problem is with the capture settings.
You can capture video via firewire or USB. Imovie has a capture mode that syncs with nearly any camcorder. Roxio Toast will also sync with a camcorder. Be sure the camcorder is connected and that the computer recognizes it. It may take a few on-off cycles to sync itt.

Not sure what cord to use to connect my mini dv to my mac.


Depends on the Mac unit you have. If your MAC has a firewire 400 port, then use the firewire cable that came with your camera. Just connect the cable to the camera and the other end to the mac. iMovieHD is already loaded - with the camcorder in "Play" mode, you will "Import" the video.
If your Mac does not have a firewire 400 and just a firewire 800, you need an adapter. Click on this link to see that adapter.
Thank you for using Fixya and your generous rating will be much appreciated.

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.

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.

Mac External Connection


Easy, FireWire.
Connect the 2 with a firewire cable. If reading off the laptop, for example, reboot it & hold the T key down while it boots up. A large firewire symbol shows on the screen indicating FireWire Target Mode. The laptop should be showing up as a firewire drive on the other Mac.

Connecting another Mac to a laptop


Connect the 2 with a firewire cable. Reboot the Mac you want to read from & hold the T key down while it boots up. A large firewire symbol shows on the screen indicating FireWire Target Mode. The other Mac should be showing up as a firewire drive on the other Mac.

PV-GS35 to mac connection problems


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.
