I have a sony handycam (DCR-HC30 NTSC) with TONES of old mini DV cassettes that I want to "bring" into my Macbook pro and make movies with BUT I'm having no luck. It's not even reading the Handycam when I turn it on. This is all new to me, so any suggestions would be helpful
thanks Dina (Klutch photography)

Also just to point out ... iLink is aka firewire (Sony always calls it iLink). That page says it's supported so that's the route I would take as far as connectivity goes.

As CanadaRAM satated, you'll need a Firewre cable with such cameras for any video transfer.

The normally existing USB 1.1 in that era was just too slow for proper fps video transfer, but if I recall correctly, one could use a USB cable to transfer single still 'Photos" if they were saved as such on the camera to a Mac.

PS: don't overlook the capabilities of using 'Image Capture' and its options.
