    "System restore Points" or Roll-bcks?
    Hi..is there any way of going back before an update was installed and applied on my imac?

    I am asking because my imac simply refuses to recognise my cam corder connected by fire wire, but on my brother's imac ( he hasn't downloaded the latest system software update yet) the imovies recognises the cam corder right away!

    I'm thinking if I 'go back in time' so to speak, then maybe my mac will recognise my cam corder and allow me to import the contents of the minidv tape in side?

    Both my brother and I have the new 27' imacs, mine is a quadcore, his isn't yet his recognises the cam corder and happily imports the tape inside whereas mine won't even recognise the cam corder as an attached device.

    I believe I updated a couple of years ago, my version is Mac OS X V 10.6.2

    thanks in advance!

    Time Machine would be the only way (that I know of) to do that.
    Otherwise, try finding firmware updates for your camcorder that might make it work with OS 10.6.2.

    Specs:
    iMac i5 2.7GHz, 16GB memory, OS 10.10.5
    And OS X.6.2 came out a month or two ago and both iMacs will have this OS. So the problem is with the camcorder and/or its connector. As OS X.6 came with the iMac you cannot install back to Leopard OS X.5. How do you connect? Firewire? Is the Firewire bus recognised in Apple System Profiler?

    Think I'd set up a new account and log into it to see if it's something system wide or only your user also.
