No Sound when Capturing

There is no sound when the camcorder is connected to the Windows Computer via USB cable. I have Windows XP. I tried USB Streaming Tool as suggested by the Manual to select another audio device but it did not work. Suggestions, anyone?

Ah. This happens to me sometimes. Well, for some reason it always works when i first open USB streaming tool( this program is not for recording)use the program to edit the video, like to fix brightness etc. Then open capturing tool. This is what you use to capture the video to your computer. What i do is to press the play button in the program, not the capture button. The video on the camcorder and the video on your screen should start playing. I do this just to test the video if its gonna have sound or not. Then you rewind the video by pressing the rewind button in the program. After that press the capture button. Sometimes it records and you don't hear the sound on the computer, I'm not sure but maybe after its captured into the computer, the video will have sound. If you do record, but with no sound, record about a minute and then stop it. Go to where you saved the video and check if there is any sound. Hope this helps you. Sorry if it's kinda confusing because i don' use the program no more. I use a DVD recorder which you connect your camcorder to the DVD player and it burns the video directly to a DVD. Its much mroe easier but you can't play around with it on the computer.

If you want to use the USB cable to connect the Camcorder to the Computer to transfer the video to the Computer then:

(Applicable for Vista Operating System Only.)

This Camcorder does not support USB streaming with the VISTA Operating System. Use an i.LINK cable to transfer the video to the Computer. The i.LINK port is also called IEEE 1394 or Firewire port.(An i.LINK is a black D shaped connector with 4 or 6 pins. The type ofcable to be used will depend on the i.LINK port of your Computer. TheSony Camcorder will have the 4 pin i.LINK cable and if the computer hasthe 6 pin i.LINK port, then you may have to use the 4 pin to 6 pini.LINK Cable).

Hi! If you go to the Canon, they have a trouble shooting section. I copied and pasted some information below. Good luck!
Details Print Friendly Version Issue: How do I transfer video tape recordings to a computer via Firewire?
Solution: Transferring video recordings to a computer ZR80, ZR85, and ZR90

Transferring Video Recordings to a Computer You can transfer recordings to a computer using the IEEE1394 (DV) terminal. With the ZR85 and ZR90 transferring video recordings via USB is not possible.
Before starting the video transferring, make sure to prepare the following:
  • A computer equipped with a IEEE1394 (DV) terminal or a IEEE1394 (DV) capturing board (the IEEE1394 protocol is frequently also called "Firewire" or "iLink").
  • A DV cable (sold separately)
  • Video Editing Software
You can use (1) the video editing software that came bundled with your computer or video capturing board, (2) the video editing software included with your operating system ("Windows Movie Maker" with Windows Vista Home Premium, Windows Vista Ultimate, Windows XP and Windows ME, "iMovie" with Mac OS 9 and later), or (3) video editing software purchased separately, with features ranging from very basic to very sophisticated.
  • The appropriate driver
A driver is included with Windows operating systems later than Windows 98 Second Edition and Mac operating systems later than Mac OS 9. The driver is installed automatically when you connect the camcorder to the computer. No additional driver is necessary or available.
  1. Start your computer.
    (If this is the first time you are connecting the camcorder to your Windows based computer your computer will display the "New Hardware Found" message while the driver is installed automatically.)
  2. Set the camcorder to playbackicon.gif mode.
  3. Connect the camcorder to the computer with the DV cable as shown below. Once the camcorder and computer are connected together the camcorder will display "DV IN" on the LCD/viewfinder. This message confirms that the camcorder is ready to receive or transfer video.
  4. Refer to the instructions for your video editing software to download your video from the camcorder.
    Note: Because procedures for digital editing software applications vary greatly, Canon cannot offer any additional support or suggestions regarding downloading and editing your video. Please refer to the software publisher or your computer manufacturer (if the software came with your computer) for assistance in using the software.
zr80dvjack.gif dv_jack_connect.gif caution.gif
  • Operation may not work correctly depending on the software and the specifications/settings of your computer.
  • If the computer freezes while you have connected the camcorder, disconnect and reconnect the DV cable. If the problem persists, disconnect the interface cable, turn off camcorder and computer, turn camcorder and computer back on and reconnect them.
  • Before connecting the camcorder to the computer using a DV cable, make sure that camcorder and computer are not connected with a USB cable, and that no other 1394 device is connected to the computer.
note.gif
  • We recommend powering the camcorder from a household power source while it is connected to the computer.
  • Refer also to the instruction manual of the computer.
  • The programs ZoomBrowser EX and Image Browser included with the supplied CD-ROM are intended for use only with images recorded on the memory card.
  • Video recordings on the tape cannot be transferred to the computer using the software included with the supplied CD-ROM.
