From what I see you have three "DV" inputs. They are called Firewire to the rest of the world. Also known as IEEE 1394. They are rectangular with a semi rounded end.

    This DV cable will connect your laptop (notebook)
    NOTE: for some models, becuase of no DV jack on the body, this cable connects to docking station/cradle instead of connecting directly to your camcorder.

Sony DCR-HC52E connected with Firewire not detected in moviemaker


The Camcorder will flash the DV IN message as soon as the i.LINK/Firewire cable is connected to the Camcorder.

If you are getting the DV IN message then it indicates that the Camcorder recognize the connection.

You can use any video capturing software like Windows Movie Maker to transfer the video from the Computer.

Refer this link for the instruction to transfer the video to the Computer using i.LINK cable.

http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/documentLink.do?externalId=C111893

If you are not getting the DV IN message as soon as the i.LINK cable is connected with the Camcorder then the issue may be with either the Camcorder or with the i.LINK cable.

Try resetting the Camcorder or try with different i.LINK cable. Locate the RESET button behind the LCD screen of the Camcorder. (You will be able to locate the RESET button by opening the LCD Screen. The Camcorder should be switched ON when you reset the unit. Press the RESET button using a sharp-pointed object).

NOTE: Resetting the Camcorder will reset the settings of the Camcorder to the factory settings including date and time. It will not delete any data saved in the Camcorder.

If the issue still persists after resetting the Camcorder and with different i.LINK cable then your Camcorder requires service to resolve the issue.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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.

  • 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.

Panasonic PV-GX31 DV Camcorder - Need Help!!


I can't find any reference to a PV-GX31 model, BUT if your camcorder is a PV-GS31 MiniDV model, then you need special software for it to show up on your computer screen. Panasonic supply the software to show and edit still shots (through your USB cable). But if you want to show and edit movies, then you need a firewire cable, a firewire connection on your computer to connect it to, and most importantly some editing software. PCs are pretty slack in this area, so you should use a mac!
