    I just got a Sony Handycam DCR-SR42 Camcorder and the darn thing doesn't come with a firewire port! Does anyone know of a way to use USB instead, that might work?:confused: Thanks, I'm dead in the water without it.

    (I have a brand new imac intel)

    There are a few sony handycam models listed on
    I'd make sure I fully update to iMovie 7.1.4 and try connecting it. AppleCare also has an iApps department that can probably walk you through some steps to see if it compatible or not and you should still be within your 90 days of complimentary support.
