PC will not detect camcorder

Had my camcorder for a while but just getting around to putting the video's on my PC to edit and burn later to DVD. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the provided software but my PC (new in the last year, HP Pavilion a6217c) will not detect the camcorder when I connect it and turn it on. My PC detects anything else I connect to it. HELP!!!

THANKS!!!

Eject the tape. Leave the tape carriage open. Power the unit off and tent it with a light linen cloth for about 20 minutes in a warm but obviously low humidity area. Emergency/ short time approach: Clean hair blow-dryer. Set for warm/low heat. Turn on and "wave" the warm air into the tape mechanism section about 18 to 12 inches away from the camera's open gate/door. Bake for 3-5 minutes..

SOURCE: unable to export video from camcorder to PC

Get a 4-pin Firewire cable. Plugs in just below power plug slot. What plug you need on the other end depends on your computer. You can get Firewires in 4 to 4 pin; 4 to 6 pin, and 4 pin to USB. My laptop is configured to take a 4 or 6 pin Firewire but my desktop only has USB. I transfered using 4 to 4 pin and it worked great. No drivers, no discs needed...at least with Vista. As soon as I plugged in the camera, I was asked to whether I wanted to transfer from biginning of tape or at currenty location. I chose from the beginning and the camera automatically rewound and strated to transfer to the PC. I don't know if it would work same way with 4-wire Firewire to USB but assume it would. Cables around $35 but I purchased at Circuit City for the going out of business discount. I also bought some SD cards so I can take snapshots and transfer them too for print.

Get a firewire and you should be fine.

How can I view and Edit a from an 8mm Video Camcorder Cannon UC5500 to LG HDMI digital TV?


Things you need to do is:
1. Put your 8 mm disc in your computer;
2. Make use of a editing program to open up the videos on discs and edit it;
3. Output your after-edit videos as you like, such as burn a DVD disc or save back to your camcorder.
You can connect your camcorder with digital TV using its special line, or play back discs in DVD player. However, to get the best HD effects, you need more equippments.
Use a powerful editing software like ArcSoft ShowBiz 5 to cover the task. Their website www.arcsoft.com/showbiz supplies free-of-charge version in 30 days.

My Sony Multi-Function DVD Recorder does not recognize my Canon HG10 USB connection, for creating a DVD directly from the Canon HDD. Is there a work around?


You could put it on your computer and use an editing software and then burn it on to a DVD.
For basic editing softwares: Windows has Movie Maker and Apple has iMovie.
Hope this helps.

How can I transfer my 8mm tape to my computer? I need to have the film on a flash drive or dvd.


Assuming that you want to do your video work later (editing,DVD burning)in your PC.


1.Your PC must have video capture device(either built-in or add-on).
2.Properly set your video editing software to able to capture video form your device.
3.Connect your camera to your PC in regular manner,like when you connect it to your TV.
4.Have your camera in PLAYBACK mode.wind the tape to the beginning of the footage you want to capture.
5.Open your editing software.turn on capture mode.
6.Start capture.At the same time,start playing back the footage on the cam.
7.When all footage were captured,click stop capture.
8.Start your editing work.
9.when complete,save it to some uncompressed video format like *.avi for later burning to DVD or converting to other format.



For beginners,I recommend Windows Movie Maker video editing software that should come bundled in almost every computer.It's fast,simple but effective enough for home-movie work.Once your project is completed,save your movie in original .avi format for later burning to DVD,etc.



BTW forget the old-school Linear Editing (on the tape) thing.It's slow,complicate and much less flexible than Non-Linear method.

Connect it to your PC via USB, if your camera prompt you of some choices, choose Back Up using camera's navigation keys, wait for a while until your camera is detected. Doing this for the first time your PC will ask you to insert CD(included when you purchase this product) and it will guide you through until its done. Once detected, your camera behaves like as an external hard disk drive. You may use the editing software included in your CD to view, edit or burn your videos to CD or DVD. Good Luck

CCD-TRV37 is analog video camcorder and can not be hooked directly with computer because camcorder video-audio out is analog and computer needs digital format.

You can hook camcorder with DVD Recorder and burn a DVD. Now you have data in digital format and can transfer in your computer.

You need to process it through a computer before itll transfer.
DVD is a digital format and needs to be converted. Use a video capture device on your PC and then use a video editer program (moviemaker, etc) to post-process and then burn to DVD.

Transferring analog to DVD


I envisage two options for you: 1. Install a video capture card in your pc. Choose one that has ports that match your analog camcorder ports. Best option: Separate capturing using S-video + a separate audio connection. Common and simpler option: Campture "composite" video using one video + one audio jacks. You don't need a new camera to make DVDs from your analog tapes. 2. Buy a pass-through (must be this type, not all digital cameras have this function!) digital camera. Connection and flow: analog camera (or your analog VHS VCR)to digital camera (via RCA cables); digital camera to pc (preferably using Firewire)- all simultaneously. Here, the digital camera will perform the function of a capture card. You will certainly need a software to capture via capture card/pass-through digital camera to your pc hard disc. Your captured video on pc can be initially in AVI/ DV AVI(better options to edit) and then convert to MPEG2 (DVD) format, or directly in mpeg format (with poor editability). Frame size (capture resolutions) should be as big as possible. In any case you will need some basic knowledge on digital video, capturing, and editing. And all the nitty-gritty that you will need to know can be found somewhere like "Digital Video Primer" and "DVD Primer".
