When I have the camcorder connected to the computer and I click on the apple symbol at the top left of screen and select  "About this Mac" and then click on the FireWire tab, it gives me this message;

FireWire Bus:


  Warning:          Unable to list FireWire devices.

  Maximum Speed:          Up to 800 Mb/sec


I'm using a Canon Optura 50 camcorder via a Rocketfish FireWire 800 cable. Running the latest version OSX and iMovie.

I used this camcorder on my old Mac with a firewire 400 cable and it worked fine. Not sure what the problem is.

Hoping for an answer.
