    I have a Canon vixia HFS20 that I have been using for about a year and never had any problems importing with. Now I can't.

    I would usual use imovie to import. but now when I hit the camera button it goes to the eyesight. no choice is given anywhere.

    The Device shows up in finder and desktop. I also use Final cut pro 7. I've downloaded and deleted canon software for device. I am usually good about solving these problems but this one I'm stumped on

    Thanks for any help

    Try opening image capture with the camera plugged in. On the bottom is some options to open the default app for the device. Works when importing from my iPhone.

    Didn't work. It will recognize a photos on the camcorder but not the movies. It will import to a windows machine just fine.

    I infer from your OP that it worked before but does not work now. Is this correct? You changed something. It can work again. You just have to change it back.
