I have a Samsung SCD71 mini DV cam, OSX does not recognize the cam. System Proifler does even see a Firewire device attached. anyone ever have a similar problem?

Can only suggest playing with the switch on/switch off sequence (plug everything in, then switch on the main power on the camera) + check that the camera is in play (VTR) mode.

Agreed. Start up the camera and put it into VTR mode (make sure that the Firewire cable is connected at both ends)...then fire up your video editing app.

I have an oddball Japanese-market-only Panasonic 3CCD MiniDV camera and iMovie3, Final Cut Pro 4 and Final Cut Express all recognised it.

You may have to go to the preferences menu and select "standard Firewire device" or something.

But try starting the camera before you start the app. It usually works for me.
