    When I import video from my Creative's Vado HD Pocket Video camcorder on a month old MacBook Pro the video files in each event are black. They have no image. When I click on them I can see the video but I would prefer to see an image which makes identifying each video much easier.

    Is there anything I can do so that I can see an image?

    Thank you for looking.

    Depending on the format and video codec you may need to convert the files to .mp4 or .mov for iPhoto to generate thumbnails for the clips.
