I am using a Sony Camera DCR TRV33 which has a minDV tape and a memory stick and a Power Mac G4 with OS X 10.3.9 Panther.
For some time I have been able to download photos and short videos from the memory stick to my computer through a USB cable but this week I decided to start downloading and editing video from the tape. I tried with the USB cable but my computer did not detect the camera while on VCR mode nor "camera"mode (it did on memory mode for the stick). I thought it may be that I needed a firewire cable. I bought one and still nothing was detected when I pluged the camera to the Mac.
Any help???? Do I need some special software ( I thought the Macs came with just about everything needed)? Or is it a Hardware issue?
