The only Insignia camcorder I could find was this one. It clearly states in the specs that is uses and comes with a USB 2.0 cable. Use that, for starters. I've never heard of a 'fugi cable'.

That manual says that camera's video format is and AVI file with H.264 encoding. I don't know why the default app opening is iPhoto. Anyway, the files might be usable in iMovie 08 or 09. You might have to download add-on, either Perian or Flip4Mac. I'd try Perian first, but only if iMovie can't open the file.

Since the camera probably looks like a drive to the Mac, you can close iPhoto without having imported the video, and then start up iMovie. When you are done, unmount the 'drive', then unplug it.

When asking questions, post the version of your software. You'll receive better answers.

Please post your results to the thread as it is good feedback.
