Question about Canon MV700 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

Communicating with iMovie

Hi, I've connected my canon MV700i to my Mac, and the camcorder is displaying DV in so it is connected, but my Mac is not recognising it. Is it compatable with mac and I Movie? Do I need to change more settings on the camcorder? I have tried changing it to AV-DV on, and off. Help!

    Hey, I have virtually the same problem although I seem to be able to transfer some footage, the import window whilst importing displays the footage being imported, then suddenly changes to a blue background.


    I'm worrying if the problem is with the firewire port and not imovie or the camcorder.


    anyone having the same issues and the same feelings on where the problem originates?

Where can i get the software for my mv700i so that i can transfer from my camcoder to my pc which is a apple mac


Hi Ron - You just need to connect the camera to the Mac firewire port and load the Mac Imovie software which will let you load the video to your machine.

To get any of the Canon software you can download it from their website HERE

Happy Viewing and thanks for using Fix Ya

Connect the camera to the Mac with the firewire cable.
Open iMovie and capture the required footage.
Send the iMovie project to iDVD and burn a disc.

Can't download video to macintosh from the canon zr100


Unfortunately, it looks as if you may have one of the macs that just doesn't want to co-operate. If the FW cable is brand new, i highly doubt you've got a defective cable. After doing a Google search, Canon knows of this problem and hasn't offered any real support or a solution. I could only assume it's the camcorder and not the mac. Give me another day or so and I'll get back to ya, I'll see if I can borrow my friends camcorder and try to get it to work on one of my other macs. 
In the meantime, try opening imovie , connect the camcorder while it's off, turn it on and set up imovie as if you were about to capture ntsc footage. Next play the tape in the camcorder and see if imovie recognizes it then.
