Re: Panasonic Camcorder and my Mac - I can't download my...
Just let us know a few more details.
Are you removing the card and putting it into the MAC? Or is it via USB?
Does the camera or card appear as a storage device? If so then you could move the video onto the mac hard drive.
Most importantly are you using the right software, iphoto is meant for photographs, shouldn't you be using iMovie?

The problem is not with the camcorder. The problem is with the capture settings.
You can capture video via firewire or USB. Imovie has a capture mode that syncs with nearly any camcorder. Roxio Toast will also sync with a camcorder. Be sure the camcorder is connected and that the computer recognizes it. It may take a few on-off cycles to sync itt.
Try to use Apple iPhoto which is a part of ilife Suite. If that doesn't help then best method is to use Windows Virtual Machine.
1. Install VMware Fusion for MAC. 2. Install Windows OS in VMware. 3. Boot Windows in VMware. 3. Connect your Camcorder to MAC and it will ask Do you want to Connect it with Windows VM or MAC. 4. Select connect to windows. 5. Install the Drivers from provided Camcorder CD to windows. 6. Now you can transfer Photos and Videos.
P.S. : Alternative method to use Windows on MAC is B0otcamp Drive. And you can also Bootcamp Partition on VMware Fusion which will run Faster than any other VM Machine.
Bootcamp Installation On :
OS X 10.6. : http://manuals.info.apple.com/en_US/Boot_Camp_Install-Setup_10.6.pdf OS X 10.5 : http://manuals.info.apple.com/en_US/Boot_Camp_Install-Setup.pdf MacBook Air : http://manuals.info.apple.com/en_US/Boot_Camp_Install-Setup_Late2010.pdf
On your Mac there's a preinstalled program called Image Capture... in your applications folder
opening this App. will let you choose what photo's to copy from your camera plugged in
and where to save them...
with iphoto there is always issues with exporting for emails.
also depending on your email account provider there may data restrictions with how many files you can email at once...
1) plug in the cable from the camera to the Mac USB port
2) Switch on the camera
3) iPhoto should open automatically. If it does not, go to Applications/iPhoto and double click this.
4) You can choose Import in iPhoto and this will copy them into the iPhoto library.
i found the answer to my own question above and thought i'd share.
rather than iphoto, you can use "image capture," which is software that comes standard with the mac.
-Turn on your camera, and connect it to your computer with the cable that came with it.
-Close iPhoto if it opens automatically. Open Image Capture (Applications folder).
-Click Download Some to choose specific items to transfer, or click Download All to transfer all items.
If you click Download Some, choose the items to transfer, and click Download.
By default, Image Capture transfers still images to your Pictures
folder, video files to your Movies folder, and music files to your
Music folder. To choose another folder, choose Other from the Download
To pop-up menu, then click Download Some or Download All.
If your computer has a SD card reader, you might be better off putting your memory card into your computer and just copying the data.
Have you made sure your iPhoto is up to date? Perhaps a new update caused this problem.. Maybe you should try an older version of the software. Also, you might want to try other software. (I think you are on a mac?), you might want to try the software that came with the camera, if it works on your computer.
O.K. I just answered this and accidentally closed the screen before sending but I'll just type it again......
on mac computers simply plugging in a camera will not necessarily do anything you must have an application in place to use that device such as iphoto which comes in ilife a pre installed software since around 2005 on new macs also on mac os x in the applications folder is a application called image capture you can simply open either of them then plug the camera in and it should be ready for import although on the older iphoto it could take a minute also in iphoto if you select the iphoto drop down menu at the top left of the screen and select preferences or press the "apple" and "," key at the same time (that will also open the preference window) select the general tab at the top left and look near the bottom where it says "connecting camera opens" in the drop down box next to it select iphoto then close the window with the little red ball at the upper left and you should be all set
But if all else fails you can download the software here
