Mac does not see Canon hf G20

I am trying to transfer video to my mac with the usb cable. I understand that it is supposed to show up as a drive on the desktop. Mine does not. iMovie doesn't see it either. When I go to Import Video, it tells me to plug in a camera.

 

The camera is in Play mode, I selected Built-in memory and I've also tried All. The inserted memory card does not show up either. Any ideas?

 

Mac OS 10.1.5 El Capitan

 

MacBook Pro (15-inch, Mid 2009)

 

2.66 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo

I'm not trying to be weird but have you considered a SD card reader?  Are you running the pixela software or an alternative?

Yeah, I've resorted to using SD cards. Just thought that the internal memory is wasted and useless if I can't get the vids out of there. Would be nice to have.
