1. connect your camcorder via the USB port to the Computer. You want the camcorder to be plugged into the AC socket. Don’t do this under battery power.

2. Turn on the camcorder. There may be a dial position that shows the camcorder communicating with the Mac. If so, then turn that dial and the Mac should recognize it as a hard drive.

3. You will then be able to go to the folder on the camcorder and get your images and photos.
