Unplug the US cable. There is a computer Application guide that came with your camera. You need to load the software and set up the application and then plug in the camera USB cable. The application guide is not complicated.

I get " check tape


I Think the cable you mean is a Fire wire cable.

Camera's and tapes, I take it its a mini DV tape movie camera.

Assuming so, on the spine of the DV cassette there's a small plastic slider, open = protect, close = write. I can only think of this as being the issue.

If it is a software problem, to be honest, wouldn't even copy to PC, I'd copy to a dvd recorder with a hard drive, edit it there then burn to dvd.

How to transfer from the tape to computer to burn a dvd


Hi,
To transfer your canon data in tape, you need to install driver of canon mini dv in your computer. Then paired your canon with computer trough usb to make data transferring. To burn a dvd disc you need to install software for dvd burner like Nero S in your computer to edit your AV and burn into DVD disc. Make sure your computer have DVD R/W to do so.

Trying to download mini dv tape onto video


for to import from the Sony handy-cam you need a firewire cable ..not a rca..this one will only help you see the video on a tv ...but you will not be able to import them into computer ...
just ask at the store..and take the camera with you ..
another thing the camera may support even a usb cable that may be available in the box that it came with (infact the iLink cable should be there too )
so ..this is a link to a video I use to explain in detail the procedure to import fom minitape of sony handycam.
.http://www.5min.com/Video/Windows-Movie-Maker---import-from-a-DV-tape-6876
after have them into the windows movie maker..just drag them to the story board..(join them if you need) ..and save them by finishing movie...and save to computer ..in best for computer mode...after that just burn them to **** ..using Nero ..or if they are small enough to get into a cd ...use window feature for burning ..

I am trying to upload video from my pvgs2 to a dvd on win xp using a wire fire usb converter cord.but neither xp or win 7 recognizes the hardware I dont have regular fire wire connections on either...


Hey! I think you need a DV to DVD burning tool to help you burn dvd from your pvgs2 DV. I recommend you use this DV to DVD Burning software which I had a good luck with.

You can have a try of it. Hope that helps.

Sc-d353 video transfer from Mini dv to computer


In order to transfer the taped video, the software that came with the camera, has to be installed. Once this is done, plug your camera into the computer, using the USB cord, and it should be recognized, and the software program should kick in and you can then transfer the files. Sometimes you will have to go to the actual drive itself and copy the images over to your folder of choice.

How to transfer mini dv tape to dvd or vcd


you should have a few choices with this model: usb, firewire, composite a/v..

this link will take you to canon's download page for your camera,

the dvmessenger app should let you view your camera on the comp, use it for videoconferencing, and view it online, as well as remotely control it, although it may not let you transfer much.

your camera should have come with an installation cd that included digital video software. if it did not, you will have to contact canon for a replacement cd.

i would recommend downloading the product manual from the above site and checking page 134

in addition you can use the memory card to transfer files via a memory card reader on the pc, these can be picked up inexpensively at most camera and computer stores. your camera however should be fine if you are using windows xp and the usb cable for your camera.

hope this helps,
trin
