I just bought a Canon...
I just bought a Canon camcorder Legria FS306 - and the enclosed software by Pixela is only for Windows. The computer/camera connection cord warns to only connect it with that cord AFTER installing the software, which I can't do. I have a feeling imovie will work, but I'm afraid to use that cord. What should I do? The os I have is OS X 10.4
thanks!

Hello, and welcome to JustAnswer.com!

My name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm here to help.

You can't harm the camcorder or your computer, just from connecting them. Make sure the camcorder is connected to a power source, plug it into your computer and open iMovie.

With the camera on, see if iMovie recognizes it. If it doesn't, let me know, and I can provide additional information.

That should do it. If what I recommended doesn't help, or if you have additional questions, please let me know and we can continue troubleshooting.

yes- thank you.
i do have another question if i may- for some reason i don't know my password XXXXX my "mail" the application with the eagle in the blue postage stamp. it's not listed on my keychain either. Any other place I can find it? I don't usually use it but i would if i could.
It should be your email account password (that you would login online with). If you haven't used it in awhile, you may need to recreate the email account in Mail. As a security measure, mail providers will lock out programs that check your mail, if they haven't been used in awhile.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
