Did you install the drivers before connecting the camera? That is the best way to do it, not plugging the camera in before installing the drivers. If you connnected the camera before installing the drivers then try uninstalling the drivers disconntecting the camera, installing the drivers, and then re-connecting the camera

I bought serious magic visual communicator pro 2 on amazon.com but the product key is not working. I called adobe and they said that I should ask for a refund. I am not sure that the seller will give me a...


Issue Activation fails when you attempt to install and launch a legacy Serious Magic product.
Reason Adobe has chosen not to renew the hosting account for the Serious Magic web site. The hosting contract expired on Nov. 3, 2008. Activation for Serious Magic products that rely on this server is no longer supported by Adobe. SolutionDo one of the following:
1. Upgrade to the latest Adobe-branded version of the product.Note: DV Rack is now Adobe OnLocation. The most recent version of Adobe Ultra was Ultra CS3. Ultra was not included in CS4, however, color keying is available in After Effects CS4. A tutorial on basic color keying is available here.
2. Download and run the Serious Magic legacy product activation tool.Instructions for SMActivate.exe:
  1. Extract the .zip file to a convenient location.
  2. Double-click SMActivate.exe. The application will display a list of Serious Magic products to be activated.
  3. Click OK.
Your product is now activated and ready to use. If no qualifying products are detected, it will display the message: "No legacy Serious Magic applications detected."
This change affects the following Serious Magic products:
  • Ultra NTSC VxxV
  • Ultra PAL XxxX
  • Ultra 2 PAL BPWB
  • Ultra 2 NTSC BNWB
  • Visual Communicator 1 Studio SxxS or TxxT
  • Visual Communicator 2.0 CxBC
  • Visual Communicator 2.0 Web CxWC
  • Visual Communicator 2.0 Pro CxPC or CxQC
  • Visual Communicator 2.0 Studio CxSC or CxTC
  • DV Rack DxxD
DV Rack Express requires a special version of the activation tool, available here. This affects the following Serious Magic product:
  • DV Rack Express FxxF
For DV Rack Express, do the following:
  1. Extract the .zip file to a convenient location
  2. Double-click SMActivate.exe
  3. Select the checkbox for DV Rack Express.
  4. Click Activate. This will create a file, smact21.db, in the C: root.
  5. Move that file to c:\program files\serious magic\dv rack express\bin
The following Serious Magic products do not use activation, or use alternative activation and are not affected:
  • DV Rack 2.0*
  • Ovation
  • VlogIt!
* DV Rack 2.0 uses activation through a third party company named Softwrap, which resides on a server that is not affected. http://www.softwrap.com/
Note: Ultra CS3 is an Adobe product and is not affected.

i am now facing the same problem but i found that i need to buy a mini DV cable to connect from the camera to the computer, the USB connection to the computer only allows you to transfer digital images from the camera that you have stored on the memory stick which you may not have inserted in the camera as the computer indicated to you

To down load video from camera to computer


If you have a cable and some software you can do that.

Pinnacle Systems Studio is great for DV transfers.

Check your owners manual for the correct cable needed.

Unable to tansfer video to computer using DV cable..


Pinnacle software will recognize the camera installed through a firewire cable once the camera is turned on. Windows movies software doesn't recognize DV cameras. You may be able to get capture to work if you go to Microsoft.com and download the Windows Media 9.0 Development Kit. I believe DV input is a capture option.

There has to be a 3rd party program installed to get it to recognize it.

Good luck on that.

Won't transfer to computer


Please be sure the 1394 function is enabled in the user menu. Depending on the serial number run, your camera may not have this menu function. We have many of these models coming in with this problem because the DV (1394) communication is lost due to damage to the DV process IC. This often occurs from incorrect insertion of the 1394 cable in the rear of a computer, the connector itself is easily inserted backwards and is now compromised causing B+ to ride in on the data lines of the cable which instantly damages the process IC.
If the camera communicates with any other 1394 device, the IC is not damaged.

Good luck my friend,

Connection


Only DV connections (IEEE1394 connections) are possible when connecting your camcorder to a computer. DV connections (IEEE1394 connections) Your camcorder can be connected to a computer equipped with an IEEE1394 (DV) terminal or OHCI-compliant IEEE1394 capture board. You can transfer taped recordings (digital video signals) to the computer by connecting the camcorder to the computer. Use the editing software supplied with your computer/capture board to transfer video recordings from tape to the computer. If you are using a computer running Windows XP, you can also record the video simultaneously on your computer's hard disk and on the tape using DV-PC Recorder Software. You can download the DV-PC Recorder Software from Canon's DV-PC Recorder Web site. Making the connection Connect the camcorder to the computer as shown in the figure below. The computer's IEEE1394 (DV) terminal is either a 4-pin or a 6-pin type, depending on the computer used. Use either the CV-150F (4-pin - 4-pin) or the CV-250F (4-pin - 6-pin) DV cable (sold separately), whichever fits your computer's terminal. Precautions (1) There are cases where the connection may not work correctly, depending on your system specifications/settings. (2) If the computer freezes while you have the camcorder connected to it , disconnect and reconnect the DV cable. If the problem persists, take the following actions. (2-1) Disconnect the DV cable from the camcorder and the computer, and then turn off the camcorder and the computer. (2-2) Turn the camcorder and the computer back on and then reconnect them with the DV cable. (3) Your camera cannot be used with DV NETWORK SOFTWARE (DV Messenger).
