Here you go. Free program MPEG streamclip for MAC from;

Download your movies with the USB connection. This program opens the .mod file. You can then convert it to a bunch of different stuff. I convert mine to DV format, then drop them into iMovie and edit. Takes a little longer but is simple works great.
Just to add to this you are going to have to have, or get the Apple quicktimempeg2 component, which costs $20.00.

I suggest just putting out the $20.00 and doing it. I use my everio all the time, and the MPEGStreamclip software converts it perfectly, and it knows whether I've used 16:9 or 4:3 settings.

Also, make sure you have an extra hard-drive, external if possible, to hold your footage, til you are done creating your iMovie project. The .dv files are pretty big, and importing them to iMovie just makes them bigger.

Best,

Brian
