Okay, so here is the rundown: I purchased the Canon HG 10 and I have a Mac OS X 10.5.3 and have been trying all day to get the videos from the camcorder to at least show up on my desktop or something, but they don't. The USB cord is plugged into the HG and the computer, but when I switch the mode to "play" it will only allow pictures to be imported, never videos; even when I switch the action to video it says "connect the compact power adapter." That is a problem. Our adapter has gone missing. So I'm curious, is there anyway to import my videos without the power adapter? Help, please.
