    Yes, I got that far, but my computer is not asking me anything and nothing is showing up on my desktop, like a drive, or camera. I cannot find the CD that came with the camera which probably wouldn't work anyway. Sony does not have drivers posted for this camera on their website 

  • KCooperfa May 07, 2008

    Thanks for the link, that's where I ended up as well on the Sony website, but it states that there are no current files listed.

  • KCooperfa May 08, 2008

    Just did and it's not finding a mac OS driver. I'm starting to wonder if the camera was supported on a Mac.

Hi...you need to upgrade to iLife 08 and iMovie will then recognise your camcoder when it is attached via firewire. iLife 08 has been updated to allow compatibility with Sony camcorders

Your camera should have a cord that came with it. One end plugs into the camera, and the other into your computer (probably USB). The computer should respond and ask you how you would like to proceed.

    Try herehttp://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-lis...

    let me know what happens after you install the driver

  • Katharine Toth May 07, 2008

    You could see if this one runs on your Mac...http://members.driverguide.com/driver/de...

    what version of the OS are you running?

  • Katharine Toth May 07, 2008

    Did you try the driver from driverguide?

  • Katharine Toth May 08, 2008

    I can't find any information on that... perhaps you could find a USB accessory that would read the video to the Mac?

    Good luck!

  • Katharine Toth May 08, 2008

    Thats awful, I would try looking for a USB accessory first, but that might not be a significant amount cheaper, it depends... Look on sites like www.buy.com, www.newegg.com, and www.techforless.com and see what you can find. Also, don't forget you may be able to eBay or Craigslists your camera for a bit of $ towards a new one if you decide to go that way :)

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.

http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/documentLink.do?externalId=C455202


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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We have some videos we want to transfer to the computer. We are running Mac OSX with the Leopard software. When I attach the camera, I see the point and shoot icon for a short time and then I hear a beep...


Put the batteries in the camera, then connect via the USB flip connection. The camera will show up on the desktop like a flash drive does. Open it when it shows up. Drill until you find the avi movies and drag them to your desktop. You may have to convert them to quicktime files. If you cannot use the software that came with the camera (it does work), you can import the sections into iMovie.

Cant import vids onto imovies on mac from image mixer 3


Mac's camera editing only goes as far as iMovie. Importing more footage is almost impossible. You may be able to find a few back routes though. Hope that helps.

Can't transfer videos from JVC Everio camcorder onto my MAC


Share: How to import .tod files from JVC Everio HDD Camcorder to iMovie?

Requirements: iMovie (Part of the iLife 08 package)

Step 1: Connect the Everio to the Mac (Via USB)
Make sure you are powering the Everio from the mains before connecting your JVC Everio Camcorder.

Step 2: Playback on PC
Select “Playback on PC” on the Everio, once connected you will see the Everio HDD symbol appear on the desktop. The video files on the Everio are stored in the SD Folder/PRG***/MOV***.MOD.

Step 3: Open iMovie
Once you open iMovie, you will see that it recognizes the Everio straight away and will attempt to import your video.

You are now ready to use iMovie to edit your video files.

If need change .tod files to common video formats like mov, mp4, m4v, mpg, mpeg, dv, flv, avi, wmv, 3gp, mkv, mp3, aac, wma, m4a, etc. Mod Tod Video Converter for Mac is a good choice. The program can also convert mod tod to ipod, mod tod to iphone, tod to apple tv, tod to blackberry and more devices!

Mac compatibility


It is compatible, but it may cost you 20 more dollars

iMovie does not work with muxed MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 clips (and that's what you're trying to do)

http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=42996

You'll need:
MPEG Streamclip 1.5.1 (free) and the MPEG-2 Playback Component ($20 from Apple).
http://www.alfanet.it/squared5/mpegstreamclip.html
http://www.apple.com/quicktime/mpeg2/

Once you do that, to transfer the data to the iMac:
1- Plug the USB cable, once detected (5s), press HDD on the touch screen panel
2- Go to Finder (on the Mac) then open the videos folder /MP_ROOT/100PNV01/M2U0001.MPG for example
3- Drag the .MPG file to the mac
4- Start Streamclip (see message further up the discussion)
Export using for example .DV format, readable by I-Movie.
5-Import the new file in I-movie
