    Using .MOD files with iMovie

    Is there any way to convert .mod files to work with iMovie 6 without having to take the .mod to a PC for conversion first?

    Not that I'm aware of.
    iMovie works best when it downloads the content from the camera itself (so it can convert it to a suitable format on the way). That said, I've never heavily used iMovie6 (only 08/09), so I could be wrong - it might be entirely possible to drag'n'drop files into it, in which case, you'll likely need to find a convertor tool for OSX that supports .MOD files.

    MPEG Stream Clip, ffmpegX and HandBrake might be good places to start.
