My son has just got a JVC GR-D340 digital video camera and wants to mess around with his films on iMovie.The instructions say to use a DV cable to connect camera to a PC-no mention of Mac and the connection looks like nothing on the back of my G4.
What do we need to do?

If the camera has a firewire port, then you are in good shape. If not, you will need a bridge to connect the camera to the computer.

According to the spec sheets it has "Firewire Connection Out".

Presumably it has a small 4 pin firewire connector, like the smaller end in this picture.

Your mac should have a larger Firewire port, like the large end in the picture, so you'll either need a 4pin->6pin adapter for a 4pin->4pin cable or a 4pin->6pin cable.
