New Camcorder, Too New Operating System

by UH60Aviator / January 27, 2008 5:30 AM PST

I recently purchased a JVC Everio GZ-MG555U camcorder and cannot connect it to my mac. I am currently running Mac OS-X version 10.5.1. Unfortunately my computer is not recognizing my camcorder when I connect it with both USB and 6 pin to 4 pin fire wire cables. Is there anything I can do to get these to pieces of technology to be compatible? Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

What do I do now?

Bob, thanks for the link. I have iMovie '08 version 7.1.1. What exactly do I do now. The mac support site doesn't offer any guidance other than telling me that the camera I just purchased may not be supported through imovie. Great. Am I just out of luck or is there something I can do?

I'm unsure if it gets any better than this! If iMovie is not working with your camcorder it's time to take it up with it's maker.
