We're about to have twins. We need a camcorder to record all of those cute little "firsts". After tons of research, we wanted and HD version camcorder, only to discover my mac won't work with AVCHD since it's powerpc, not intel. *joy* SO! We buy a Sony DCR-SR85, using SD (mpeg-2). I'm hoping to use the iMovie 08 I already have downloaded. Only to discover I need to download and use in Quicktime with the mpeg-2 playback component (an add'l $20). I download our first test of video. Yay! But wait... no sound NO SOUND. I call Sony. After 30 minutes, they tell me to call Apple. I call Apple. They tell me to reset the p-ram. What? I checked the file info on the downloaded viedo and no audio was transported. It's a muxed file. "sometimes it doesn't work" is what Sony said. I need advice. Should I just return the camera and buy a different brand or is ther a fix to my problem? I would really have preferred the capability to "Import from camera" directly from iMovie than deal with Quicktime.
