Question about Sanyo VPC-CG6 Digital Camera

1 Answer

I cannot transfer videos to my computer with my Sanyo Xacti VPC-CG6

My OS is Vista. I can get for example Picassa to recognize the device, but it will not download the videos I've taken.

I cannot find any support online through Sanyo either. This was a rental camcorder, supposedly new when I got it.

Any suggestions? I just want to be able to transfer data from the Xacti to the computer. I'm connecting via a USB 2.0 port.

Thanks in advance for your help!

After the USB cord is connected, a menu will popup on the camera. The camera needs to be told you want to transfer files with the usb rather than use the camera as a webcam for example.

Selecting USB Connection / Card Reader on the camera should allow you to access your files on the camera.

You could try removing the memory card from the camera and using an external usb card reader on it.

Well i have a Sanyo J1 Xacti Digital camera and i lost the CD with the software to download the pictures from camera to Computer. Is there any site where i can get download it? Thanks


Try Sanyo.com - look for support button.

Most newer computers with newer operating systems will detect a camera/camcorder when connected to USB. Have you tried it without the disk?

I have an older Xacti that records to SD card. You can use a flash card reader to transfer files without Sanyo software.

Can't use VPC-CG9 as PC camera.


I don't know why this wouldn't work on Vista HP, but this excerpt from the manual suggests that your XP SP1 Pro would not work without the SP2 rollup:

"Please perform the following upgrades before connecting the camera to a computer.
-Upgrade Windows XP to SP2.
Install Windows XP SP2.
-Install Windows Messenger 5.0 or later version.
Download Windows Messenger 5.0 or later version, and install it.
-If using MSN Messenger, please install MSN Messenger 7.0 or later
version."

Perhaps if you are following the steps exactly in the manual and it still does not work, upgrading Messenger will magically help.

I've downloaded my first video files from my Sanyo VPC HD1000 Xacti but all I get is a green screen that plays audio but not video. I'm using Mac os x Tiger.


In my opinion,it is due to you haven't choose the right video format.
Video Download Studio can help you with this very well.

VDS converts your video into any kind of video format ,including formats AVI, MPEG, MP4, 3GP, WMV, MP3, FLV, MOV, WAV etc.

Driver sanyo vpc cg6


When the Sanyo CG6 is plugged into the computer, and the popup menus on the camera are directed to USB Card Reader Mode, you should not require any drivers for Windows or MacOS.

Review the CG6 Users Manual for more information.
