1. Launch iMovie on the Mac
2. Connect black firewire cable from camera’s DV port to Mac.
3. iMovie will detect camera and allow you to choose to import. When do choose to import, you should hear the tape rewind and soon see the video import in real time (the video will play out in iMovie)
4. At this point, I chose “Stop”. It will then process and report that “About * minutes of video were imported.”
5. Click “ok”.
6. On the left, in your iMovie’s “Event Library”, you ‘ll see the event(s) that were imported.
