Importing Video into MacBook

I have owned my camera for several years, and have recently moved from Australia to the UK and purchased a MacBook.I was supplied with a USB driver disk which I think applied to Windows only, but in an case I left it in Australia. I want to import video into my MacBook for editing in iMovie (or even iDVD) so would you be able to tell me what accessories I might need and what software I might need to be able to do this. Thanks, Craig McDonald

If your device or the driver is compatible with your mac use it. (sometimes some drivers arent compatible with it.) anyway after you install the driver camed with your camcorder. use usb cable to connect from your camcorder to your mac. Use some software that could edit and upload a video such as ulead movie maker, nero movie maker, etc.. (i prefer to use ulead movie maker because its so easy to use and its user friendly too). after you finish editing, save it with any types of videos you would like such as avi, divx, vcd, dvd, etc.. hope that helps!

    1, Record your video as normal. Plug the camera into the AC adaptor, and the USB plug. Connect this to your Mac.
    2. A new drive will appear. Open it. Copy the contents of the SD_Video folder onto your mac.
    3. Delete anything that isn’t a .mod file as these are irrelevant.
    4. Rename all the .mod to .mpeg and change the extension when prompted.
    5. Download ffMpegX and the necessary binaries
    6. Open up ffMpegX and open the first .mpeg file. Convert this to a .MOV, .DV, .AVi file or whatever format you need. Final Cut is best with DV (although uses a lot of bytes).
    7. Repeat as necessary for all your .MPEG files.

    Thats it! You can now import into iMovie (which will in turn convert into .dv files which means you can then trash the .mpeg and .mov files) and do as you wish. This is also true for importing into Final Cut Pro/Express, or pretty much any other editing program.
    You could always use iSquint to convert to Apple TV or iPod compatible files and add straight to iTunes, or anything else you wish.

    you will require the usb wire and the disk which are easily getable in the the camera repair shop.

How do I take video tapes media from a sony handycam ccdtrv81 and load it into imovie to make a montage with my own old home movies?


Hi Vicki
You are not going to do it without spending some money.
Look on ebay for something like a Canopus ADVC110. It's good quality (sorry - excellent quality) unit powered from your Firewire socket. It does Analogue-Digital conversion both ways. Into iMovie and then back out to your camera. in fact iMovie sees it as your camera. You can find cheaper kit but the picture quality is not as good. There is a more expensive version that has video noise reduction built in but it's best use is for removing noise from VHS tapes when importing to iMovie.
There are several on ebay in the UK right now. Canopus is now called Grass Valley - one of the biggest manufacturers in the broadcast TV world.

Converting Jazz files to Mac os


You can plug-in your Jazz using a USB cable. You can have iMovie automatically import the video content into the program itself. However, this can take awhile. The fastest way to transfer the Jazz files is through the use of a card reader for your Secure Digital (SD) card. The importing process will be the same, but at a greater speed.

JVC GR-D275U Driver for mac


You would need to use iMovie. Most MacBooks come with this already installed but if you can't find it you might have to buy it from apple's website. All you have to do is open iMovie with the camera connected and on and import the movie into iMovie, then you can edit the way you want it to be. iMovie has some great tutorials as well. Importing and editing can take a while, however.

check on ebay for a back - up camera ( that model has a good history ) and / or get an estimate on yours , for a price comparison ; if the main board has failed ( corrosion , etc ) repairs will likely exceed replacement cost ;
