i just bought a Sony DCR-SR68E handycam and I can not load the video to my mac? Does not recognise the device. Will I have to bring it back for a refund. ?I have a new 27inch Imac. Why does Sony not support Macs?

Hi Irene, welcome to the forums, just slow down a bit here and we can help,

The Sony device drivers might need to be installed on the iMac, there should be some installation disks with your handy cam and one must be for mac, if not, go looking on the web for the programs and drives needed off the Sony web site.

There are also many more talented people here on the forum than me, so just woh it up a bit and let the others have a look and see what comes of it.....

welcome.....

How are you trying to import the movies? Are you using iMovie, Image Capture or something else?
You might not know it to look at me, but I'm pretty radical.

I have successfully used 2 different Sony Handycam models with our iMac. Just make sure you run iMovie and allow it to load completely before you plug your camera in to the USB port on the Mac and it should be recognized by iMovie and then allow you to import footage.

That model of camera is listed as being iMovie compatible so it should certainly work it may be that you just have to do things in the right order and I have always found that iMovie needs to be up and running before you plug the camera in.
