My brother got a new 17" iMac Core 2 Duo (only FireWire 400). He tried connecting his DCR-HC96 and it is not detected by iMovie OR Final Cut Pro. We tried a different cable, no go, tried resetting the camera, no go, tried plugging it into my fathers MacBook Pro, also no go. I have not tried it on my macPro, however. Any Idea of what it could be? It works fine with either cable when plugged into any PC via FireWire.
