Use a firewire cable to connect the camera to the Mac. Nor a USB cable.You will not see an icon on the Mac desktop.If iMovie does not open automatically then open iMovie.

Normally the selection is automatic for playback but is to be set when you are recording. So if the menu is selected to switch speed ONLY in the recording mode it can be set to any of these speeds.

You can not change a camera from NTSC to PAL. The systems are completely different and there is no way anyone can do it even the manufacturers would not bother with that.

What you can do however is to take your picture using NTSC then you get to an editing suite like Adobe Premiere Pro CS4. If you upload or capture your NTSC video in the PAL environment of Premiere Pro then you will have that converted automatically but there will be changes to be made by adjusting picture size and so on. This I found out can be done with very little picture quality loss. Though with some cameras sound syncing can be something you might have to work on.

Hi, I would go to a pro to camera shop and get it cleaned right. There are cleaning kits you can get too. Good luck.

Hi,

On these old models of VHS camcorder, I recall they have either RCA outputs, or BNC connectors which will require a BNC adaptor (to convert to RCA).

Using a 3RCA lead, connect the camcorder to the video (and audio) inputs of your DVD recorder.

I take the cover off the door, using the eraser as the end of a pencil - lightly press on the recording head (drum). Put a tape in and watch to see if the tape now wraps around the head and stays in position to record.

This is usually caused by an oxidized, misaligned or defective Audio/Video drum. You can try running a cleaning tape through the camera. If this does not solve the problem the camera will need to be serviced by a qualified service technician.

Tape mechanism problems can be quite complicated. This will require disassembling the camera to repair and can usually be done fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.
