MY OPTIARC DVD RW AD 7540 IS IN THE HARDWARE BUT I LOST IT AND IT WONT SHOW ALSO AS WELL AS IT DOES NOT WORK


1. Ensure the USB port is 2.0
2. Connect the drive directly to the USB port on the computer system. Do not connect the drive to a USB Hub
3. Try a different USB port on your system
4. Disconnect all other USB devices except a keyboard or mouse.

Also

1.
You need to ensure you are using the recommended media list.
2. Make sure the drive is listed okay in Device Manager. To ensure this, right click My Computer/Properties/Hardware/Device Manager. You should have a listing here for optical drive. Double click on the optical drive and make sure there are no yellow ! marks on the drive.
3. Get the latest Firmware updates available for your drive.
4. Make sure your System/Nero ASPI files are not corrupt. Go to Nero/Nero tool kit/Nero info tool. Click on the ASPI tab. In the arrow down tab, check both your system and Nero ASPI files. At the bottom, it should display ASPI is installed and working properly. If it does not, please get the latest ASPI update. http://sony.storagesupport.com/.

Also

1. Make sure the power cable connect properly.
2. Try sticking a pin in the little hole next to the eject button on the drive. This resets the reset button for the drive to open again.

Canon hv30 is't being recognized on my vista computer


You may have used a different USB port on the computer. Try a different one.
Generally, any USB port would work, except that some devices create a "Virtual USB" connection that is configured with a specific USB port.

Let us know if this helped...

Can't install Sony DDX-A-1010 USB device using Vista.


I had this same problem and found a fix. I do not know if how my system was broken fits your case but it could be worth a try. Looking at the user manual to the camcorder, it said to look in the Device Manager to make sure the driver was installed. It is supposed to appear in the DVD/CD-ROM drives. It did appear there, but with a yellow flag next to it. I have also been having a problem with my DVD/CD drive. Its driver has had a yellow flag next to it for quite some time. Then I realized I was getting the same error message on my camcorder as I had gotten with my DVD/CD driver "Hardware not found (Error 41)." (Please excuse if I am misquoting these error messages, now that the problem is fixed, I do not know exactly what they said. So, I am doing this from memory.) So, I did a google search on "dvd/cd code 41." It took me to a Microsoft website http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;314060. Apparently, if you install iTunes, Nero, Roxio Creator, or Zune, it can mess up your registry. This Microsoft website has a "Microsoft Fix it" icon you can click on, and it straightens everything out (it might mess up your installation of iTunes, Nero, Roxio or Zune though). Now, not only does my camcorder work, but my DVD/CD drive is fixed too.

Follow the steps below to troubleshoot if the computer does not recognize the USB connection from the camcorder.
  1. Turn off the camcorder.
  2. Ensure the USB cable is connected securely to the camcorder.
  3. Ensure the other end of the USB cable is connected securely to the USB port on the computer. NOTE: Connection through a USB hub is not supported.
  4. With the exception of the mouse, keyboard, and camcorder, remove any other USB connected devices from the computer.
  5. Turn on the camcorder.
  6. On the camcorder LCD screen, touch the computer or hard disk icon.
  7. If the issue is still not resolved, connect the USB cable to a different USB port on the computer.
  8. If the issue is still not resolved, try uninstalling and reinstalling the USB driver.
  9. If the issue is still not resolved, test the USB port on the computer by connecting a different USB device.

  • If the other USB device operates, the USB cable may need replaced or the camcorder may require service.
  • If the other USB device does not operate, then the issue is being caused by the computer. If the computer is connected to a network, try disconnecting it from the network or connect the camera to a computer that is not on a network. In addition, mapped drives may cause connection issues; drive designations D, E, or F must be available. It may be necessary to contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer.

I will forward a link to a page where you can get the steps to transfer the videos from the Camcorder to the Computer.

I assume that you are running Windows XP in your PC and have Sony DCR-TRV19 camcorder.
Please go to camera Menu and enable USB stream option. Computer will recognize camcorder.
If any thing is different, let me know to help you out.

Canon vixia hv 30 not recognized by computer


This camcorder uses USB for pictures only. To access pictures, plug in USB cable, set the camcorder to Play and to Memory Card.

To transfer video you need a firewire cable and card. Actual cable will depend on connection your computer has, typically it will be something like this: FireWire_cables.jpg

Additionally, to transfer video you will need a video capture software and codecs, unless the software has the codecs (Nero does). Unfortunately all free video editing software I tried was unable to deal with HD. I had various levels of success with Windows Movie Makver, Ulead and Nero.

You may want to record video in non-HD, and see if you are able to capture that. If your computer can capture that but not HD, and you have the codecs installed, you will need to investigate your computer.

If all you need is a codec, here is a good free candidate: K-Lite Mega Codec Pack


It is of course very frustrating that Canon would include nothing with the camcorder to assist users with video caputure.

I AHVE SONY HANDYCAM DCR-HC28E BUT ITS NOT CONNECTING WITH COMPUTER WHEN EVER I CANNECT MY CAM WIH pc IT SHOW A BUBBLE MSG UNKNOWN DEVICE AND YOUR CAM DOES RECOGNIZED PLEASE HELP ME OUT.


This solution is based on my assumption that you're using the iLink (Firewire/IEEE1394) port on the camcorder, and that you're using a PC running Windows 2000/XP/Vista.

Make sure the camcorder is plugged into its AC adapter, as sometimes people report problems when using battery power. If you're using a laptop PC, plug it into the mains also. Shutdown your PC completely (click the Start button, then choose Shutdown, then select "shutdown my pc" or "turn off") and turn it on again; then plug in the camcorder.

If that doesn't work, try a different port, if you have more than one. Other things to try are a different PC (might be a problem with your port, drivers, or the Windows installation) or a different cable (might be a broken wire inside the cable).

If you get the same problem when using a different PCs and different cables, you should take your camcorder in for servicing.
