Import from Panasonic PV-G150

Advertisement

When I try to import a movie from my Panasonic PV-G150, I get a "Communication Error." Have a firewire plugged in. What gives?

I had the same problem. To use the Panasonic PV-GS500 with iMovie on a Mac you need to connect it using firewire to the Mac (on windows you can use USB). Then instead of placing it in the "PC" mode, which was stupidly labeled because it doesnt even work on my PC, you need to place it in playback mode.
If you dont, iMovie will say "cant communicate with camera" or something to that effect.
Hope that helps.
