    Samsung-Mac compatibility
    My husband recently bought a Samsung camcorder and it appears to not be compatible with my Mac. Does anyone know of any way to transfer video from a Samsung video camera to a Mac? We could put it on his PC, but we have all other video and pictures on my computer and only my Mac is set up to work with the external hard drive that I ultimately want to put the videos on. Are we just out of luck with this camcorder?

    What type of connection does the camcorder use? There is no earthly reason for it not to work.

    What is the camera model? USB or Firewire connection? Software being used and its version? OS X version? Mac version? Have you carefully read the manual to understand how the camera has to be set before connecting to the Mac?

    It is a Samsung. That is reason enough. I know some of their older miniDV cameras had issues with Mac.

    If it has an external Mem Stick can't you get an adapter for it? Sorry if you said it didn't have on in OP.

    my sony digital webbie HD cam doesnt hook directly to the mac and work correctly either. I bought an external multi-memory card reader and it works for the camcorder and the still shot digital camera. (SD/memory stick duo) only cost me $9 at walmart.

    its weird, but when there is a will....there is a way.
