I have a sony handcam model dcr-hc32 ntsc. I was told that you just plug the camcorder in and a program pops up and says, Hi do you want to transfer the videos to your mac. This has not happened. I do not have a setting that says vcr on my handycam. I don't think I have the firewire cable. I have a usb cable that came with the thing. I don't even have a place to plug in a firewire cable on my base for the video cam.
