oh cool. Thanks for the reply. I'm using iMovie 9 cuz I haven't upgraded to 10.6 yet. Maybe I'll just do that. Are there any other options like some obscure app that i can install just to get the movies on my computer drive?
You should be able to copy the files manually to your Mac without going through iMovie. I'm not familiar with iOS, but do you have a file manager program where you can browse the contents of your Sony's memory and copy the MTS files to your Mac?
