Hello all,


Thanks in advance of my question.  I'm new to Mac and I need to know how to safely disconnect an usb camcorder from my iMac once

I've finished importing video from the (Sony HDR-CX 160) Handycam with flash memory.  My camcorder documents says to disconnect after I

click the special icon (that says safely remove usb mass storage device) and then disconnect the usb cable from my camcorder.  My PC had this icon, and I know that Mac does not, so how do I know how to disconnect my camcorder from the Mac?

Please be kind with your answers, and assume that I know nothing about a Mac.  I really appreciate your help.


Thanks Again,


iMac 27in., Mac OS X (10.6.4)
