Cannot Makie DVD from Canon ZR70

I am trying to make a DVD from my cannon zr70. I am using Windows Movie Maker. (windows xp laptop) I am using a USB cable (provided by cannon) to connect my camcorder to laptop when I play my camcorder and I try to do "Capture video from source" in the movie maker - it throws an error "A video capture device was not detected. Verify that the device is turned and connected properly and then try again" If I change the camcorder mode to "card" - it recognizes my camcorder to move over still photos. This is my first attempt to make a DVD. Any help is appreciated

    I am having the same problem as sundu, even with purchasing the DV-to-USB cable that connects to the DV port on the front of the camera (instead of the one on the side of the camera). The fire-wire cable that others have recommended are about $120 plus S&H and require a firewire port, which my laptop does not have. I do not particularly want to shell out a bunch of money that may wind up not solving the problem.

    I have had many problems with this camera in the past while on vacation to far away places and had to wait until returning to the USA to get them resolved. With that said, any solution while avoiding a great expense would be very much appreciated.

I would like to transfer the videos taken from the Canon DC-51 to my laptop so that I can edit the videos. Could you tell me how this can be done? I'm using a USB cable to connect the camera to the...


Hi, the Videos can be imported directly by connecting the Camcorder to the USB port of the Computer.

Windows 7 directly imports the Video from the Camcorder, if the Camcorder is not detected in the computer then it requires Drivers which will be available from the Camcorder manufacturer website.

The imported Videos can be edited with Windows Movie Maker application which is pre-installed with Windows 7.

How do I transfer the mini DVD to Movie Maker


With your Recorded DVD-R Disc "Finalized", and in the DVD player on your computer, you should be able to browse to your videos with Movie Maker.

In MovieMaker, on the left side where it lists:
Movie Tasks
1. Capture Video
Capture from Video device
Import video . . .

You want to "Import Video", by clicking that and browsing to the DVD-R to find what could be MPG files, or VOB files. They're both MP2 DVD format video and audio files.

Tip: Right Clicking in the Import Video Dialogue Box where the files are listed and selecting View / Thumbnails, will present a view of the scenes in each video.

Cannot download video, only Card pictures


I do not know MACs, but a standard 4-pin to 6-pin firewire (IEEE1394) is needed. On Windows XP, plug it in, run Windows Movemaker and you are good to go. By the way, a "DV cable" is a firewire cable.

If your MAC cannot "see" your camcorder, try another firewire device to see if your MAC is the culprit, or drag your camcorder and firewire cable to a friend's PC running Windows XP and see if it works.

Edit and transfer to DVD


I use Handbrake ( http://handbrake.fr ) to turn the minidvd files into Mpeg4 files. I have a canon dc 220 and I hook it up to my computer with the supplied USB cable. I then copy the files onto my laptop and use Handbrake to convert them to the mpeg4 format.

Re: Canon Digital Video Camcorder ZR70 MC DC 7.4V


hello,

As your camera only has analogue outputs, you will need to buy a video capture card for your PC, such as those made by Leadtek. As mentioned by Tela above, there are also external USB-connected devices that do the same job.

Make sure your PC exceeds the minimum spec or you may lose information during capture. I would recommend at least 1GHz processor.

Hope that helps.
