I have video recorded in SD (MPEG2) mode on a JVC GR-HD1. I need to be able to capture it on a Mac. I've tried imovie and Final Cut Express HD and they tell me there is no video. It plays back fine on the camcorder. Any ideas?

Hi Rob,

I connect the camera via firewire cable.

In imovie 8, I go to "import from camera", my camera shows up, I click on import, it says it's importing, but no video shows up on the import screen, no recording time shows up in the record counter and if I stop it, no file is created.

In Final Cut Express HD, I start a new project then use one of the easy setup options. I use DV-NTSC Anamorphic for my other video camera. I tried setting it up with all the NTSC formats, there are nine of them. Then I go to capture. It finds my camera and says "VTR OK". I click "capture now", the camera starts playing but a message comes up, This operation could not be completed as there is no video.
