How to import/convert/edit MOD file into iMovie '08/iMovie'09/iMovie'11?

iMovie is a proprietary video editing software application which allows Mac, iPod Touch 4th generation, iPhone 4 and iPad 2 users to edit their own home movies. From there, the user can edit the video clips, add titles, and add music. Effects include basic color correction and video enhancement tools, and transitions such as fade-in, fade-out, and slides, however, when you import MOD file to iMovie for further editing, it appears that MOD is the right format for iMovie.

Issue 1: I have just purchased a Canon FS 100 camera, but for the life of me how do I import the movies into iMovie'11. Why is it not as easy as my old DV whereby you just plug it in? I can't seem to drag and drop. Any suggestion?

Issue 2: For some old reason, I can no longer upload my file from JVC Everio GZ-MG750 Camcorder into iMovie. iMoive will import them but won't display them saying the files are unknown formats. What can I do and how can I view and edit my videos if I can't even import them into the computer.

What's the reason?
iMovie allows Mac users to edit their own home movies in DV, HDV, MOV, MPEG-2, MPEG-4 formats directly. JVC Everio, Canon FS series, Panasonic SDR series and Sony camcorders export MOD video format which can't be recognized by iMovie. Is this mean we are impossible to edit our camcorder MOD files using iMovie? Of course not, this article will introduce your the best solution.
