Okay guys and gals, I'm going to kindly ask for assistance tonight. First, I'll point out that I am a ********! That being said, the rest will make much more sense. Sony just rolled out its latest line on Handycam's but it doesn't appear that they are Mac friendly. I noticed this after purchasing one and I think my statute of limitations (14 day return policy) has expired by a week or so. The problem I have is getting the images/video off the HDD of the Handycam and onto my computer. I can get the video's off but they won't play in iMovie or Quicktime (both are lacking the audio). I can however use a conversion program to convert to mpeg-4? and then play them in quicktime but this seems like a hassle and it means that for EVERY video, I'll have to convert them one-by-one. Any help would be great. And what HDD video cameras are Mac friendly?
