HDR-CX100 Camcorder will not work on my Mac?

Asked by bobisho (178points) February 28th, 2010

I’m really hoping the collective can help me, I have a Sony Handycam avc hd model HDR-CX100 and I use a mac. I find that i cannot copy my HD movies or my SD movies to my Mac. There was a CD that came with my Camcorder called PMD, but after some research I found that it doesn’t work with anything other than Windows XP! I was wondering if there was anyway to get my movies off my camcorder to my Mac in a playable form, I’ll try anything right now because I need some of the movie clips on my camcorder for a school project, please help, any information I don’t have I can try to provide if you ask.

It uses a memory stick. Just open that up as an external drive and copy the files across.

@DarkScribe is it still in CPI format? Because I figured out recently thats my main problem.

I am not sure how you regard that as being your problem. You will need an application with the right codecs to do anything with it. I use Adobe Premier for my HD video editing, not too expensive, but it is certainly not free. I am not sure whether there are any free apps that will do it. Maybe you should look at the various option for running PC apps on your Mac. Not a graceful solution, but one that works if you don’t want to fork out for Mac software.

Check your camcorder user manual for if it work with Mac based computers or not.
