    We just purchased a Sony DVD Camcorder >>>
    We know we cannot use the little disc on a Mac, BTW, we have a MacBook, but is there a way to download the disc from the camcorder to the MacBook? The Sony does come with a USB cable. We have not seen it yet because we have not opened the box. Help Please.

    Thanks in advance.

    I would try just plugging it straight into your mac with the USB cable and see is it recognized? I know I HAD one and it DIDNT work with my iBook. That would have been an older model thought (about 18 months ago)

    iMovie will only detect video from a firewire cable. The firewire port is just beside the two USB ports on the left of the MacBook. You'll need to buy a firewire cable and hope it will plug into your camera.

    I'd be very surprised if it worked. USB is simply not designed to handle video.

    Is there any chance you could take it back and buy a proper MiniDV (tape) camera with a FireWire port?
