1: Someone recommends installing the free FlipShare software, and run
FlipShare at least once to install the required codecs to enable playback
of your Flip videos on your Mac. However, flipshare only convert flip
video to wmv, and newest version even no this function
2: Someone suggest ： Try connecting first before launching iMovie and
see if that fixes it. Then vise-versa if no luck. You might have to try
different combos like powering on the camera then plug it in or plug it in
then power up. Try as many combos as you can before ruling out a worse
problem. Sometimes it's just a bad connection - bad cable. Be patient and
it should work with the right combination. You also can try, but to be
frank, useless and waste time.
