I have just purchased a Sony Camcorder DCR_HC90 and I have done some research and I understood that some of you get your macs to see the cam strat away however true to form and my luck my macs both the G5 and the power book cannot see the Camcorder on firewire at all!!
Can anyone Please help? I am sure it was on here that I read a thread on how to do it, I have called Apple and they were next to useless.
Hope to hear from you all soonest

check your cable. to my knowledge SONY camcorders never have any problems with macs.
what software are you using? iMovie of final cut

Try restarting the G5 first, then while it's running plug the cable in to the computer first then the camera. Then turn on the camera. Are you trying to import footage or use it as a web cam? If you are using it to import footage, then iMovie should recognize it! We are here to help, let us know!

i use a HC20 with no probs, the second you plug it in the iMac sees it. check cables and then try restarting. are you using iMovie?
yeah Sony and Canon camcorders have no issues with macs so

Hi all, Ive tried all your suggestions before I posted but no luck, i have not tried a different cable but it is new and worked on an older pc 9, im at a loss what to do next? Do I have to set the camera menu/settings to anything?
look forward to your help, many thanks
