I have an older Mac mini running Mac OSX 10.4.11 and iMovie version 5.0.2.  I just bought a Sony HD camcorder model HDR-SR10 that's 40GB HD camcorder.  When I plug in the USB cable to the Mac, iMovie says no camera attached after I set on the camcorder "USB Connect" mode.  What is wrong with this picture??

Should be an easy one for a Mac person.

Thanks!

I would definitely suggest getting iMovie HD 6, it is freely available on the apple site:
http://www.apple.com/support/downloads/imovieHD6.html
and then update that version.
If your camera is a brand new one, iMovie might not have the driver for it. as iMovie 5 was released back at the beginning of 2005. so try 6 and update it and see how it goes.
