    I just bought a Sony DCR-TRV460E, but it will not interface with my Mac so I cannot use it with iMovie. Neither my Mac nor the firewire cable or port are at fault.

    Has anyone had a similar experience ? This model comes fitted with Firewire connection as most new Sony digital camcorders. The TRV460 is not included in the list of Apple's officially supported models, but this doesn't mean much as the list is not updated frequently. Apple should really update their list much more regularly.

    Has anyone managed to use iMovie to connect to a Sony DCR-TRV460 ?

    Yes, it worked with my version. NTSC, though. Make sure that you move the camera control slider in iMovie (to the left of the play button) over to the left, which then controls the camera. Also, the camera should be in Play or Record mode.
