    I have the same issue. I cannot seem to figure out how to upload my video from camcorder to Mac. You mentioned a firewire. Where do you connect this firewire-6 to the Mac? Through the earphone outlet? Thanks

    I too just bought a panasonic H60p and just realized it won't connect to my MAC. i am so disapointed. It's a shame and i feel like Panasonic deliberately kept that useful piece of information somewhat conveniently hidden.

    Hopefully the tip on buying a 6 pin firewire cable works.

You can't transfer videos through USB. You will need a Firewire 6-pin cord and use it to connect from your MAC to the Camcorder. Only then you can transfer videos.

I've been having this problem but I worked it out and it can be done! I have a mac ibook, a few years old, with intel processors, and I couldn't get my new Panasonic SDR-H40P/PC to upload videos (or even for my mac to "see" the drive) . first thing i did was upgrade OS X from 10.5.5 to 10.5.6 from mac website. then, i upgraded iLife to 09 for the latest version of iMovie. then - here might have been the crux, which i didn't read or hear about elsewhere - I had to use the AC adaptor to the DC plug to the camcorder, not run it off the battery! Then, I plugged in the camcorder via USB and turned it to video playback. the camcorder's screen came on and I chose the hard drive... and voila - iMovie came up and I was able to upload all the videos... seems easy now, but epic figuring it all out... hope this works for you ---

Dunno if this would help but it did with me.  I have the Panasonic HDC-SD20 video camera. I plugged in the DC cable that came with the camcorder into the charger, took off the battery and then plugged in my camcorder into my macbook with a USB cable. I opened my iMovie and from there I started uploading my videos. Hope it helps!
