Question about Video Cameras
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!!!

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..

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.
