"My Panasonic SDR_S26 records MOD with a small MOI. But I don't know how to import my mod to iMovie 11. I have the recorder hooked up by USB and sometimes iMovie sees it as a Camera. Sometimes as an external hard drive and in this case won't upload. I have read the posts elsewhere and have not been able to get the solution to import mod to imovie. can anyone recommend how to import .mod to imovie for some easy editing" -- Question from Jack john US
