    I used a several years old DV video camera (Sony DCR-HC21) to record my niece's wedding a few weeks ago and am having a bear of a time trying to copy the video into iMovies to edit and burn a DVD for them.
    I'm using the USB cable that came with the camera, but when I open iMovie, it does not recognize the video camera in order to start upload the video.

    I guess my first question is whether this is even possible. I've uploaded GoPro videos in the past without a problem. I'm assuming that since it's digital and a standard USB connection that it should work.

    Does anyone have good experience in iMovie and its workings that might be able to troubleshoot my issue?
    I would sincerely appreciate it!

    Try the photo transfer app in the utilities folder to get them on your Mac.
