    As you can see from the following link, your camera is not officially supported by iMovie, as that is the most likely software you'll be using I think.

    Maybe manually copying them to your HDD (external would be best, if not a MacPro with more than one HDD) and then using MPEG-Streamclip to convert them to something editable for iMovie.

    Also MRoogle is quit a helpful resource for searching this forum.
