Perhaps i need to include some additional information.
During the first download, I followed the instructions on the sony website for connecting the camcorder to the mac and opening iMovie. It worked with no problem.
I did the same thing the second time, but iMovie only recognizes the iSight camera. I've tried:
* changing the order in which I turn on equipment and power up iMovie (both before and after attaching the camera)
* deleting all the files on the camera and then taking new video
* updating all software (which it already was)
I could understand if I was NEVER able to upload vids, but having done it once, I don't see what step I may be missing.
No shooting... LOL!
Well, I think I did. When I turn it on, I make sure it's on Playback function and then choose event view.
I've tried reading the "manual" that came with it, to make sure this is correct, but nowadays, those manuals are less than useless in three different languages.
If there is another "playback" mode that I'm missing... that could be a problem
