We have a CanonDC10 DVD camcorder. It was supposed to work well with Macs--and it does, provided you want to take still photos with the camcorder and post them to the Mac. I can't seem to make iMovie see it or its video files at all. It records the source files as .vro files. (We use read/write mini DVDs because friends told us that the DVD-R disks were less reliable.)

The camcorder comes with hokey PC software that will produce DVDs, and the files will play on a PC with Windows Media Player. They will not play using Quicktime, iDVD, the Mac's DVD player, or, interestingly enough, Windows Media Player for the Mac.

Is this something that is fixed in later versions of iMovie? We are buying a new laptop in the fall--coinciding with when Apple releases Leopard. Thus, we would get the newer software then (and a lot more horsepower for producing the home movies that will bore our friends).

Thanks for any insight you can offer.
