Currently Being ModeratedFeb 11, 2011 3:56 PM (in response to pinballwizard)I have the same story as pinballwizard. I am at a school in the middle of big video projects. I was able to connect to my camera(s) on Friday, February 4. On Monday, none of my computer lab computers recognize the cameras. The only changes I have made between downloads was software updates. Could there be something wrong in the update?
I, too have tried all the usual trouble shooting tricks... power, restarts, new cables, different cameras, etc.iMac, Mac OS X (10.5.8), multiple computers

Well, I had this issue and found a fix. It may be a fix for myself only, but it worked. I tried everything and no matter what I did, iMovie would not recognize the camera, only the iSight. However, even though iMovie would not recognize the camera, the computer still recognized the SD Cards and mounted them on the desktop. I opened one up and browsed to the movie clips. Then I simply dragged one of them over to the Event Library in iMovie. Only THEN did iMovie finally recognize my camera. It said "This file cannot be copied, it must be imported with iMovie Importer." I clicked yes and poof, problem solved.
