Cannot change mode from DV IN to DV OUT

Need to connect to iMovie and the camera is recognized by the computer but not as a device within the application. I think it is because the mode is set to IN instead of OUT.

Thoughts?

Macbook pro doesnt recognize the panosonic pv-gs9 when connected with firewire


I take it that your macbook pro has imovie on it. If you open up imovie and plug in your camcorder it should recognise the camcorder and give you access to putting the movie onto your mac. Have a look at http://www.apple.com/support/imovie/ it should help.

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!

Unable to download video from JV dvl520 to my mac


Is it connected with a firewire cable? Have you been able to import the video before to your Mac?
If it it says it is in USB Mode - then change the camera menu setting to DV.

Power off the camera, shut down iMovie - power on the camera then launch iMovie check again. (Assuming your using iMovie).

My Mac does not recognize my Canon HV 30 DV when i connect the FireWire.


I've been around the block with this for days, including a fresh installation of the software on my MacBook Pro. Sigh.

Here's what seemed to work:

1) Reset Vixia HV30 (tiny reset button behind the battery). Did not change any settings on the camera after that.

2) Installed Canon's software that dropped some canon-related files in Library/Quicktime folder.

3) Opened new iMovie 6.0.3 and Final Cut Express HD 3.5.1 projects (a) FCE (using Easy Setup in FCE) to Apple Intermediate Codec 1080i60 (b) iMovie 'HDV 1080i'.

4) Connected 4-pin --> 6-pin firewire cable out of the camera to a bus-powered external drive and from the drive, firewire 800 --> firewire 800 --> MacBook Pro 10.5.8.

This was a last-ditch, Hail Mary effort. It worked, and the camera showed up in the System Profiler firewire window, too, whereas it had not before all of the above. Still does not show up when hooked directly from the camera to the FW 800 input, but at least I can capture now.

Panasonic SDR-H40P/PC


This camera will only work with the latest version(s) of iMovie (08 and 09). I'm not sure, but you may need an Intel-based Mac also/too. Any previous version (for example, iMovie HD, aka version 6) will NOT work with this camera out of the box.

There is a workaround. You will need the MPEG2 Playback Component for Quicktime from Apple ($20) and a free program called MPEG Streamclip. I also use OS 10.5 (Leopard), and this has worked for me. Once the component is installed, drag the .MOD files from the camera (it will appear as a disk on the desktop when you plug it in and turn it to "PC Connect" mode) one at a time into MPEG Streamclip. Then export them to the DV file format, which is what iMovie uses. Depending on the length of the clips, this can take a fairly long time. Good luck.
