Panasonic SDR-S26 thinks my MacBook is a PC

Advertisement

When I hook my new camcorder up to my laptop with a USB cord, the options on the screen of the camera and the files that come up in Finder are what the manual says should come up for a PC with Windows. The manual says that the Mac option on the camera screen should be [ PC CONNECT ], but on my camera it's coming up as [ PC/RECORDER ], which is the Windows option.
The files that are showing in finder are also what the manual says should appear when connected to Windows. It's 'SD_VIDEO' instead of 'CAM_SD'
Does anyone know why this might be?
