Your Canon camcorder has a DV port on it. It needs a firewire cable and a firwire card or adaptor for your computer. Any electronic store has one.

I have an acer 5740G laptop to which when i am connecting the MV 920 cannon cam corder through the camera's port in to the laptop's USB port, the laptop does not recognise this as an external removable...


This type of camera usually downloads better with a Firewire (DV) connection. Some mini-DV cameras only use the USB connection for stills (if they have one) and can only download video by Firewire. This is because you have to play the tape into the computer, not just copy a file.

Most PCs have a USB port, but no Firewire port. Macs often have a Firewire port but may not have USB. With desktop Windows PCs, you can fit an add-on Firewire interface card. This comes with a driver for the card. If your laptop doesn't have a Firewire socket, then you are probably stuck.

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.

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.
