Problem when connecting from cam corder to PC

Hello,
I have just installed the software on my laptop, and am now trying to establish a connection between the laptop and cam corder in order to ultimately save a video on my PC. On the screen of the cam corder I receive the message: "Connecting... Do not unplug the USB cable. Do not turn off the power." This message has been displayed for many minutes. There is a physical USB connection between the two devices, and I am trying to pull video from the cam corder disk to my PC. Do you have a suggestion?
Regards,
Ron

I have a sony handycam carl zeiss vario-tessar and i just recorded a video on tape. I have a USB cable from a Vtech camera and I am trying to use it to transfer the video to my PC. So then I can send it through email. I also have a memory stick in the camera, maybe that would help me get the video to my PC. There is another cable that seems like it should work but when I plug it into the PC nothing happens. Please help me get this video to my PC so i can email it out.

Hello i have accidentily deleted a video from my camcorder (sony dcr-sx40) without transfering it to my laptop. how can i recover this video from the cam corder directly ?? thanks


In this case you may need video recovery software, here are some programs you may rely on. Both programs can also recover photo and music files.
Connect your camcorder (memory card or hard disk) to your computer with such recovery program installed, and then start to recover. Take the trial version first,

Video Recovery Software (for Windows)
Mac Video Recovery Software (for Mac OS X)

A Tip: Before your videos are recovered, do not attempt to save more files to the memory card or stick in case the original files(your videos) are overwritten.

I just bought a Palmcorder but dont know how to work it


There should be either a USB Cable or a Analog cable which connects from the cam corder to the PC. Depending on the brand it may need software to copy the clips from the camcorder to the pc, or the connection will create a drive letter from which you can copy the clips from the camcorder to your computer.

Hi.. I have a jvc 32 X cam corder that i want to down load my videos onto my computer and am not sure how..


Two things here. Is your cam corder a digital one? If so there should be a connector on it for either firewire or USB, and if not, you will need some kind of video capture device if your cam corder has outputs on it. If not, you will need a player (vhs-c or 8mm or whatever your format) that can send out to the computer. Once this connectivity is done, you need video capture software that will "encode" the video files that will be produced. If your cam corder is already data (hard drive onboard or SCD card recording, you will only have to "demux" the format you have into the format that you are seeking (ie.. MPG to AVI or so on).
I hope that helps you out.. let me know if you need more clarification. It also might help if you give the media you have (VHS-c etc.) and the available outputs that you see on your cam corder. Thanks!

Cam Corder Connection To PC


Your PC must have DV port for DV signal.
You can connect your camera with PC through USB port only.
Try to find DV card for PC in local computer market.

PC wont see my Panasonic NV-DS50


Generally when you connect the camera via USB Windows XP and Vista activate native drivers and the camera becomes visible under "My Computer" (XP) or "Computer" (Vista) as a removable drive. However, probably will not be visible by capture software. In that case you would need to use a DV interface cable otherwise known as firewire and have the camcorder in playback mode.

Unable to connect vdr-d250 to pc


I think that the following are to be taken care of first:
1.Cam corder to pc cable is properly connected.Some call it as 1384 connection also.
2.Cam corder should also be run on play mode for transmitting a/v signals to pc to decipher.
3.Ur pc also should have been installed with codec for processing the signals .
4.Your pc also should be usb.2.0 capable.
5.The media on the cam should not be protected for free playing along with pc.
If all the above are checked you would have cracked clear right.
good luck.
