okay soo, i bought a canon vixia hf10. i also bought final cut studio 2 and installed new RAM. ive pretty much done everything i could, but my computer is still not recognizing my camcorder. my imac is almost 2 years old but not quite. ive plugged it into a newer mac with ilife'08 and it worked in imovie but i want to use it final cut. any ideas? is it the firewire that is a problem? does final cut only recognize firewires? thanks

final cut and imovie only sees firewire. usb is used for digital photo cameras.

I've had the same problem, with other camera model, and my problem was solved with a new fire wire cable... It's pretty cheap so consider trying this...

I take care of a free-2-submit MAC OS X Software Repository

After the 3/4 mark see the 'Log and Transfer...' demonstration of the Apple 'Importing Footage' tutorial.

Is the iMac a Power PC or Intel version?

Have you got the latest upgrades to Final Cut Pro and very recent version of QuickTime?
