I'm a Mac newbie and would like to know if the Canon ZR50 camcorder is capable of importing video footage (from cassette) to my iMac using FireWire 800 9-pin to 4-pin cable. When I connected the cable, my camcorder screen flashed "DV in" ... so I'm guessing the cable works fine BUT Finder was unable to locate the device. I've got lots AND LOTS of video footage I need to archive before the tapes become un-readable. Any help and/or direction is GREATLY appreciated!!
FYI ... I've got iMovie '11 version 9.0.8 and just installed iDVD version 7.1 so I can create DVDs.
