Asked by Melton Carr on 2010-12-06

Pitivi doesn't yet handle any kind of camcorder, so it is normal that it doesn't "see" it.

If your camcorder is recognized as a USB mass storage device, then just use the normal file manager to get the files from it. Otherwise, maybe try kino or kdenlive, but I'd be surprised that they work with USB camcorders (kino was made for DV, afaik.).

Can you help with this problem?
