I'm a new Macbook user and I already had the camera. I use the cam a lot and bought the Mac specifically for video editing. But - the camera and the Mac won't talk to each other. The camera is usb, no firewire, but the mac insists on looking for firewire. All the presets are for firewire. Not only that but since the camera uses cards I thought I'd nothing more to do than plug the card into the Mac and import the files. No. It won't read the files, it doesn't support that file format. Have I bought the wrong machine? Can anyone help me? I'm nearly demented trying to sort this out.
