Make sure the camera is turned on, and is in playback mode (or whatever it's called).
I have a Sony miniDV camera, and it works fine with iMovie.

when ur in imovie and in import mode, make sure u select your camera from the little choice thingo that is next to the play/import buttons, should be to the left.

Have you ever been able to capture footage from a different camera on your computer?
Make sure your iMovie project settings are correct: Standard Definition 4:3, make sure it is appropriately NTSC or PAL.
I have used the DCR-TRV22 before, and it is definitely compatible with iMovie, so I assume this is a configuration issue.
