Hi,

I have a Sony camcorder, and I cannot see the video in my iMovie window. I have the newest version, just purchased.

I have done ALL of the obvious things, like turn the camera on and off, reconnect the firewire cable, etc.

The weird thing is that it worked exactly once about six months ago, but I haven't had any luck since.

My daughter's one-year birthday party is Sunday and I was hoping to make a DVD.

Help is greatly appreciated.

Julie

You do have the camera in VCR mode, when you turn it on?

The next thing to check is what coach_z suggested. Check the toggle switch between the camera and scissors, make sure it is on the camera side. The scissors side is used when you are editting your video and the camera side is used in importing your video.
