We want to use this camera to upload videos to a website for further viewing. With our previous camera, we were able to connect via USB. Go to the website and pull those files directly from the camera. However, this camera does not show up under devices, which means the only way to upload to the websit would be to import the videos, then upload (which would take forever). Any suggestions???
So that the Community can help you better, we will need to know exactly which version of Mac OS X is running on your Macbook Pro. That, and any other details you'd like to give will help the Community better understand your issue!

Thanks and have a great day!
Power is very important for the connection of your camcorder.
When you plug your camcorder into your computer as suggested above, then turn the camcorder on in the video playback mode, what do you see on the camcorder's display?
Does your computer respond?
When I plug my camera is everything is powered up. When I hit the play buttom I am able to go into photos and import from the camera, but the camera does not show in devices in my finder. So in order to upload the files to the website I either have to import them to the computer first (takes too long) or record to an SD card and then upload which usually makes the upload time a little longer
On Yosemite, this camcorder does not mount as was the case with our previous camcorders. To transfer AVCHD movies, we recommend the use of Pixela's Transfer Utility LE. You may access this software from http://www.pixela.co.jp/oem/canon/e/.
For the transfer of MP4 movies, we recommend using the Canon CameraWindow.
