Ok. So I bought a Sony HDR-HC3 Camcorder to record various nonsense so that I could play around with i-movie. I have recorded some footage but am now faced with the following problem: I cannot get my i-mac to recognize the HDR-HC3. Once I connect the firewire cable and turn the camcorder on shouldn't finder automatically locate the camera? I get zip, nada, nothing. I have also run i-dvd and i-movie and get nothing. Any thoughts? The manual that came with the camcorder is somewhat cryptic. Is it possible that I am doing something basic wrong? How can I determine if the firewire jack in the camera is functional? Any thoughts or suggestions would be helpful. Oh yeah.. I am using an Intel I-Mac , I-Movie HD (6.0.3), and OS X 10.4.8.
