It sounds like you are having the same problem as me. I have a new iMac arriving in a couple of days It sounds like you are having the same problem as me. I have a new iMac arriving in a couple of days and I'll be upgrading from a 10 year old iMac. My research prior to buying showed me that the new Macs don't have Firewire they only have thunderbolt.

Your camcorder most likely has a FireWire 400 port, so you'll need a cable that has a 4-pin connector on one end and 800 on the other. You can find one on the Store.
Good luck! …
