    Welcome to Mac-Forums
    I thought this camcorder has a USB 2.0 port?

    Is it this model?

    Also what OS are you running?

    Did you try using an SD card reader and importing from it into iMovie?

    At that point you can select what format/resolution you want to import your file. If you desire you can also import it into iPhoto (not sure of the benefit of doing this, but is a possibility). I generally import the videos shot with my still camera into iPhoto, and import from there into iMovie if I want to do any editing.
    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .
