We got a MacBook Pro a few months ago. It's running OS 10.7.3. We launch iMovie, plug in the camcorder via the USB cable and nothing happens. iMovie is suppose to find the video camera and display an import window. But nothing happens and we've left it for nearly an hour!
We then tried File > Import from camera and it tries to take video from the built in camera. We left it for nearly an hour to see if it would detect the video camera but again it didn't.
The camera is a Canon Legria FS200
Any help would be great
Some recent Macs have SD card readers built in. If yours does not, most USB card readers should work. Try it.
