Hope someone can help. I have the Everio (model listed in the subject line) and a MacBook Pro running iMovie '09. I cannot get the movies downloaded to the Mac via iMovie or iPhoto. I've watched the tutorials and have done exactly what it says to do, but it doesn't work. Anyone else have this problem? What solutions do you geniuses know about that I have yet to discover??? When I connect the camera via USB the Everio_HDD icon pops up on my Mac but still can't download. iMovie does not recognize the Everio as being hooked up...it says there is no camera connected. Frustrating! THanks for any advice.
