I have begun transferring video from a SONY DCR-TRV50 camcorder (miniDV tapes) into the latest version of iMovie 08 using the 4 to 6 pin firwire cable. I run 10.5.4 on a Dual 1.8 GHz powerPC G5. Everything appears to be fine, BUT I cannot transfer the whole 1-hour tape at the same time. I have tried this on many occasions in a variety of ways, for some reason it shuts down the transfer process after 3 minutes, 12 minutes, 18 minutes, 22 minutes, sometimes up to 30 minutes but I cannot transfer the whole thing. And I have no control over how long each transfer will be. UGH! Am I missing something simple please help as have upwards of 100 hours to transfer and it will be a lot easier to be able to transfer each whole tape?
