    Specs:
    iMac 27" late 2009, MacBook Pro
    Connecting by firewire
    Hi all,

    I am finding it impossible for my iMac to recognise my mini-dv camcorder. I believe I've been doing all the right things.

    Specifically: Mac is an iMac intel 2.8 ghz core i7 with 16 gb RAM. Camera is a Sony DCR-PC 120E. I have connected with firewire to the above iMac (and also to my Macbook pro), but neither computer can "see" this camcorder. I also have the camera in playback mode and have tried both settings on the camera's menu A/V to DV OUT (OFF/ON). Neither Apple support nor Sony support have been able to help, basically blaming each other!

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Many thanks

    I take it that you are rying to use iMovie or one of the Final Cut products to import with?

    If I had a pound for each topic/thread that I've seen regarding problems importing from Sony miniDV camcorders, I'd be a rich man.
