Why ask in the Appleworks forum? Anyway, iMovie takes your camcorder footage and turns it into a digital movie you can edit, title, and so on. iDVD burns the result to a DVD. There are forums for both these applications where you would be best off asking any further questions.

It depends on what you want to do with the video. Do you have a removable memory card in your camera? If so use a card reader to upload the video files to your hard drive. Once you have them safely on the HD play them with Quicktime Player to make sure the will open and play satisfactorly before deleteing from the memory card.
From there it will depend on what you want to do with them as to using iMovie (to edit) or iDVD (to create a video DVD that can be played thru a TV set).
Is your profile current? If not give us you system, iMovie and iDVD versions that you have.

I had a reply going - must be too slow - it disappeared.
I bought an Injsignia camcorder a few years ago.(no longer avail) it came with a 4 GB San Disk SDHC card. Also shot some of my old 1950 8mm Kodak movies from a projector to white sheet. also shot some with a SD 450 Canon camera. Followed instructions in iMovie & iDVD to download from camera. always the samer "NOT CONNECTED TO CAMERA" As you suggested , used a card reader bioth apps " FOUND NO IMPORTABLE MOVIES" Quick time moviers directed me to a site for DivX free download. Did that and found it took 2 hrs to download/covert the chip. Now that dandy download will only play on the DivX player and the result was so dark I could barely see it. Also it froze at about 12 minutes and I had to pull the power plug to force quit.
guess I'll take that old movie down to Walmart /costco or someone who say they can do it at 10¢ a foot.
I'll have to see it to believe it. I thank you for your suggestions.
