HELP ME FIGURE OUT HOW TO DOWNLOAD VIDEO TO MAC...

I recently received a Panasonic PV-GS70 digital camcorder/camera. The software that came with is for PC...and I can't download anything into my Mac. I'm using Final Cut Pro and the I-Movie programs without success. Help? Panasonic told me to try firewire (I did, no luck) or the USB import (no luck)...and now says I need a second-party vendor software...but won't tell me what software. Thanks....

I use a DV camera that is not on Apple's "compatibility" list. (It should REALLY be noted that Apple sells camcorders in it's on-line store that aren't listed as compatible!) Depending on which software package you are using, including version, results may vary. I too had a fairly confusing frustration the first time out, but here's Jeffe's notes: FireWire! (USB is not for video). Start with iMovie: (FinalCut is higher-end, and thus is more picky about what it will take.) launch the application, then plug in the powered-on camera set to it's "play" (VCR etc.) setting (as opposed to camera setting.) If iMovie STILL does not see the camera, then I'd start to worry about compatibility, and contact an Apple SPECIFIC retailer (not a chain, like CompUSA etc.) for help. BTW: Nice Camera! Let me know if it works out. I was contemplating Panasonic for my next camera.

    This is the only advice that I've found that works! I have a PV-GS300 and these directions worked immediately for downloading mini-DV to iMovie 8.0.
    Thanks for the straight-forward instructions!

For Windows 98SE/Me, Windows 2000, and Windows XP for Panasonic Palmcorder Camcorders.
For models: PV-GS50S, PV-GS70.

According to a user on another forum (driverguide), it works for the PV-GS50D as well as the 2 listed.

Transferring Video to my Laptop

For this purpose, you must have a USB cable that connects your palmcorder to your laptop. It must be there in its box itself.

After connecting, please insert the CD that came with your palmcorder and install the software. If you don't have the CD, then you can download the required software from this below mentioned link:

Panasonic Palmcorder PV-GS85 Problem: Capture video with Windows Moview maker via USB

I believe you have to use a Firewire (IEEE 1394) cable to transfer the video. From what I have read, the USB connection is only if you want to use the camcorder as a "live" camera.
