I just bought a Samsung SC-D383 camcorder, which records to a DV tape. I'm having problems transferring the videos to my mac (2.0 GHz aluminum/glass iMac, 4 Gb RAM). I bought a Firewire cable to connect the camera to the computer, and I thought everything would be a matter of plug and play. I opened iMovie '08, and after setting my camera to playback mode, an import window came up with a blue screen. It said that if I clicked "Import", the tape would rewind, all the footage would be imported and the tape would be rewound again. After I clicked import and selected to import to a new event, the blue screen said "Importing...", while the video played on my camera's LCD. After about 25 seconds, the window said "Disconnected or off" and nothing happened, no video got transferred, and the video kept playing on my camera's LCD. :-\ There's an option to record to an SD card, but the quality is lower, there's no 16:9 support and a bunch of other features are not available, so I really don't want to have to resort to this. The videos recorded this way can be transferred without a problem, though. Is there anything I can do? I'm downloading iMovie HD 06 to see if that would solve anything, but I have my doubts.
