    It worked, but iMovie 10 couldn't import audio from my camcorder

    • Written by Karen P from Duluth

    I got this adapter to import mini-DV tape footage from my Canon Optura Pi camcorder into my Mac (running 10.13.3). With this adapter, both iMovie 10 (current) and iMovie 9 (2011) could import the footage, but iMovie 10 could not import the sound. Using iMovie 9, I made a movie, and then had trouble making a DVD with iDVD (from 2012); iDVD only found the themes one time, and kept crashing or freezing and having to be "Forced to Quit." Conclusion: The adapter worked, but iMovie 10 couldn't bring in the audio. Unless you want to try 3rd party software, this adapter may not help much for turning mini-DV footage into movies on DVD.
