Ok I've always easily loaded photos onto iPhoto, but this is the first time I've tried to up load a video from my digital camera. Is the video suppose to go into iPhoto like a photo would? Or does it go somewhere else? When I connect the USB cable from the camera to the notebook, iPhoto automatically opens and I get a message that says "Ready to Import 1 Item." I click on the start button and a P2 icon appears on the left; that's my camera, a Nikon Coolpix P2. I wait a little while, but nothing happens. I'm able to play back the video on the camera though; so I know it was in fact recorded. Edit: I was reading some of the information in the computer's owners manual and it says to connect the camera to the computer via a Firewire cable for loading videos into iMovie; is that what I need? I've been loading photos into iPhoto with a USB cable with no problems.
