Question about Sony Dvcam DSR-PD150 DV Digital Camcorder
If you are using FireWire, try starting up the System Profiler and check if camera is listed on FireWire connected devices.
Also do a test using AV cables. Remember to click on the camera to select it, IMovie does not always select camera automatically, if you have connected a different device before you may need to click on the camera icon or use the slide switch to change to the Sony camcorder. Instead of using "import from camera" from drop down menu click on the camera icon.
If there is an earlier version of iMovie, or a different program that may access firewire(eg.VMWare, Windows emulator and more), then the video from firewire will not be displayed.
Many camcorder are not working in iMovie 09. Downgrade to 08 version if you are using 09.
