Windows Movie Maker doesn't recognize digital camcorders.    You need a program such as Pinncale Studio to do that.

ZR500 doesn't support windows 7 64bit. Your camcorder will say DV-in if plugged into any such input.

My zr 500 will never do anything ....will not playback.....will not record .. not even take a CASSETTE ....AWFULL IS IT ?


Tape mechanism problems can be quite complicated. This will require disassembling the camera to repair and can be done fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

This is usually caused by a failed component in the power circuit within the camera and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

Can get mt canon zr500 camcorder to get reccognized on my laptop.. i have windows vista on my laptop...i'm trying to transfer my mini dv tapes on my canon zr500 to my computer..what do i have to do?


You have to use a firewire connection in order to transfer your videos. The cambera will not transfer the videos through the usb ports. There is no specific driver for Vista, and this isn't a driver issue. Use your firewire port and cable, and you should be fine.
Good luck,and hope this helps.

When i connect canon zr 500 cam, a message says "no driver installed" can u help


Hi,

You need to have a Windows operating system later than Windows 98 Second Edition or a Mac with an OS later than 9. The driver for your camera is include with all later operating systems. Canon does not supply a separate driver for it.

There is software that can be downloaded from: ZR500 Downloads but it will not help without a driver installed.

Thanks for using Fixya.

FireWire for camcorder mini dv


Go to this link. Click on "Frequently Asked Questions" and then click on the appropriate link (#4). Basically, once the firewire cable is connected, make sure that the camcorder is in the playback mode, is turned on, and you see "DV IN" on the LCD. If all that is happening, your computer/software should be able to "see" the camcorder and download the video.

Canon ZR 500


you need to open a video capture program like windows movie maker to capture the video and audio or I have adobe premier pro 8.0 it will allow you to edit and add features and burn DVD's and render the movie and burn to DVD with special effects.
