    I checked the website for your camcorder and support forums.

    Seems like your camcorder films in .avi which is not going to be able to upload right to imovie.

    Seems to me that you will have to get a converter to change the file from .avi to .mov

    If you have any other questions just let me know.

    Thats what I use. There might be better free applications for the mac out there but this should do just fine.

    when converting from avi to mov save to your desktop since its easy to find.

    Then open imovie and go file>import movies.

    As easy as that.

    If you have any problems or questions just go ahead and ask. gl
