I have been reading these threads for weeks and trying just about everything I have found to fix my problem, but the bottom line is both my macbook and macbook pro do not recognize my JVC GR - D250U mini dv camcorder. I have tried several different brands of fire wire cables, differrent sequences - yet it never seems to work.


I received a response from JCVC suypport and followed their instructions and it did not work, but I did notice it said to use imovie8/9 but my computer already came with imovies11. Should I uninstall 11 and reinstall 8 or 9? Is that the issue? I would rather not go that route unless necessary. My IT skills are mediocre at best and I do not want to open that can of worms if it is not needed.


I wouuld hate to purschase a new camcorder just to upload because I now have a digital camera that records movies and ma happy with that.


I even downloaded the mod converter, but that does not work because my camcorder is just not recognized. I appreiate any help I can get. I have about 50 mini dv tapes to do and am anxious to get started.


Thank you all SO much in advance!

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
