    Computer: iMac G5 iSight running 10.4.5

    Tonight I wanted to grab a home video in iMovie and make a DVD of it. I hooked up my moviebox DV and iMovie kept on saying "No Camera Attached." So I try my DV camcorder - and same thing.

    I tried both of them in my iBook and they both were recognized right away.

    I then tried booting in Target disc mode both ways from iMac to iBook and vice versa. Nothing.

    I noticed that in System Profile on the iBook it shows the info for the connected device and on the iMac nothing is shown on the firewire screen - it just has:

    FireWire Bus:

    Maximum Speed: Up to 400 Mb/sec


    Any ideas or will I be sending my Mac back for service :(

    Try another Firewire device and see if the imac sees it.

    I tried every devide I had.

    I tried resetting nvram

    and I even tried turning the iMac off for an hour or so.

    BUT

    What I didn't do was unplug the Mac when I shut it down.


    I just shutdown and unplugged it for about 5 minutes - plugged it in and bam - its back.

    sorry for the extraneous posts but maybe it will help someone :)
