    I’m trying to make my Mac, (Maverick), see my old Canon mvx40i. It doesn’t seem to want to. I used to transfer footage from the camera’s tape to a Windows PC, but I no longer have one, just a laptop. I have the right cables and all, but the Mac won’t play ball.

    Anybody know what I need to do to get this to work?

    Thanks. Slight Smile

    I’m no maven. But my Canon HG10 and HG20 import just fine into Final Cut Pro (the “new one”).

    Well I’ll be!!! That worked! Thanks, Sylvia!

    My problem was I couldn’t see the camera on the desktop, so I assumed it hadn’t mounted. But when I started FCPX, and hit Import, a window opened and there was my video.

    The video is my mom, who has since passed away, so I’m very grateful for your help.

    Thanks again. First Place100
