Re: PC can not regconize Camcorder

Hi, Beside the dv cable, your PC must have a firewire card. USB connection is no good to transfer video to your PC. I have no problem with windows XP. See good luck

I have a GR-D295U camcorder. Can I get a cable that connects the mini USB connector on the camcorder to a regular USB connector on the computer? Thanks, Rene

The USB connection for this camcorder only allows still image transfers. To transfer video you will need a DV cable (JVC VC-VDV206U or VC-VDV204U depending on the type of DV connector on the PC - 4 or 6 pins)

How do i load tape to computer?

The simplest solution is to use a FireWire cable connected between camera DV output and FireWire PC Input.
If your PC or laptop do not has a FireWire Input, you can use an USB capture device like EasyCap connected to your PC by USB interface and to your Camcorder by RCA connector or S-Video connector.

How do i get video from my vx1000 to my compuiter

You will use the DV (firewire) jack on your camcorder. It is located on the back of the camcorder under the door for the battery. Depending on what type of connector your computer has, you will need to get a firewire cable (also known as IEEE-1394a cable). The connector on your camcorder is a 4-pin connector. You will either have that same looking connector on your computer (some laptops now have the 4-pin connector) or a 6-pin connector (D shaped). 884068d.jpg This pic is of a 4-pin to 6-pin cable. These are available at many electronic stores and online. To be safe, have your camcorder powered off when connecting to the computer. Once you have connected the cables, turn your camcorder on and insert the tape that you would like to transfer. Your computer should recognize it and install the appropriate driver. Most computers have some sort of free video editing program (like Windows Movie Maker). Depending on the software, you may have the option to import the entire video tape or only parts.

Hope this has helped you.

Connect to Pc

You will need a firewire cable.
It has 2 different connectors on it. On small 6 pin plug for the camera end, and a larger (almost like a USB but with tapers at one end and slightly thicker) plug at the other.
Your computer will also need to have firewire either built onboard, or via an addin card that you can purchase at any PC shop.
The connector for the camera side plugs into the side of the camera near the battery.
Hope that helps =)

You cannot connect a DV cable to a USB port. These are two incompatible standards. DV is also called Firewire, iLink or IEEE1394. You PC must have that kind of port for you to transfer your video from the ZR800 and you will need a DV (iLink/Firewire) cable. You cannot use USB cable they will not work. Check if you want an example. Most new PC come with 1 or 2 iLink/Firewire/1394 port. If you PC does not have an iLink/Firewire/1394 port then you will need to install a iLink/Firewire/1394 card (see for more information.

Only DV connections (IEEE1394 connections) are possible when connecting your camcorder to a computer. DV connections (IEEE1394 connections) Your camcorder can be connected to a computer equipped with an IEEE1394 (DV) terminal or OHCI-compliant IEEE1394 capture board. You can transfer taped recordings (digital video signals) to the computer by connecting the camcorder to the computer. Use the editing software supplied with your computer/capture board to transfer video recordings from tape to the computer. If you are using a computer running Windows XP, you can also record the video simultaneously on your computer's hard disk and on the tape using DV-PC Recorder Software. You can download the DV-PC Recorder Software from Canon's DV-PC Recorder Web site. Making the connection Connect the camcorder to the computer as shown in the figure below. The computer's IEEE1394 (DV) terminal is either a 4-pin or a 6-pin type, depending on the computer used. Use either the CV-150F (4-pin - 4-pin) or the CV-250F (4-pin - 6-pin) DV cable (sold separately), whichever fits your computer's terminal. Precautions (1) There are cases where the connection may not work correctly, depending on your system specifications/settings. (2) If the computer freezes while you have the camcorder connected to it , disconnect and reconnect the DV cable. If the problem persists, take the following actions. (2-1) Disconnect the DV cable from the camcorder and the computer, and then turn off the camcorder and the computer. (2-2) Turn the camcorder and the computer back on and then reconnect them with the DV cable. (3) Your camera cannot be used with DV NETWORK SOFTWARE (DV Messenger).
