I need help as I am not able to get videos from my new camcorder. I just bought a canon Legria HFG10. This camcorder has 2 ports OUT : HDMI and USB
I try to connect it to my MacBook Pro (Mac OS 10.7.3) over USB but i doesn't work ... In the help I see that HDV camcorder should be connected over FireWire ... which I do not have on my camcorder ... On my macBook I have a firewire 800 and Thunderbolt.
Do you know how I have any chance to connect both to be able to get my videos from camcorder to my computer ?
Thanks a lot in advance for your help
Your Legria is not an HDV camcorder, so you do not connect it to your computer with a FireWire cable.
Your camcorder is an AVCHD camcorder, which you connect with a USB cable.
You then use Premiere Elements' Get Media tools for Flip, AVCHD and Hard Disk Camcorder to download the video from the camcorder to your computer.
Make sure your project is set up for the AVCHD video format you have shot too!
Parts 1 and 2 of my free 8 part Basic Training tutorials show you how to set up a project and get video into it.
I thank you very much for your quick and very helpful answer. It seems that I succeeded to recognize my camcorder and import the videos.
I will have a look on your tutorials.
