    Hopefully someone can help me with this... When I plug in my new camera, iPhoto opens up and prompts me to import the photos. No problem importing the photos, but the video files stay on the camera. I have to manually drag the video files to the desktop from the external drive (camera). Is there a secret to getting iPhoto to accept the video files and import them along with the jpegs? It recognizes video taken from my other camera which is a Canon.
    Thanks!

    What's the file type of the video? Perhaps iPhoto doesn't recognise the type.

    The camera puts the video in a .mov file, so I can manually drag the file from the camera to the computer. I was just wondering if there was a way to adjust the settings on the camera or on my mac to allow iPhoto to accept it.
