"I have a Mac Book Pro Intel laptop using OSX and cannot get the CANON VIXIA HF200 video files on my computer! I want to use it in FCP. It only lets me upload the images on the camera from the included software but no video clips! I just read in the manual that I need to initialize the memory card before using. I did not. I recorded a lot of video that cannot be reshot. Is there any way to get CANON VIXIA HF200 video files onto my Mac?"
