Computer does not detect camera


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

Hi, I am trying to import from my Canon MV 600 ( Tape not digital ) into a mac pro. I got the DV to firewire lead but the computer doesnt seem to recognise the camera. Many thanks Billy


Hi in order to get footage off your camera through Firewire i.e DV you will have to use a software to capture the footage. You can use iMovie to capture the footage off the camera.
Open Apple System Profiler (it's in the Utilities folder) and check to see if your camera appears in the FireWire section.

If your camera is connected via FireWire and is turned on, follow one or more of these tips to re-establish the connection to the camera.
  • Turn the camera off and back on again.
  • Disconnect the FireWire cable from your computer and reconnect it. Do the same at the camera as well. If the camera is connected through a FireWire hub, try connecting the camera directly to the computer.
  • Some cameras need to be set to "VTR", "VCR", or "DV" mode in order to communicate with a computer. Check your camera's documentation for information on how to set your camera to this mode if needed
Hope this helps.

Did you install the HDMI Drivers for BOTH PC & Camera? Without those it will never work. I don't think that there will be any firewire drivers for it? Anyway thats what you need to do.

Are you removing your memory stick and then placing it into a port on your computer, or do you plug a cable in to your camera? Either way, it should work.
If cable: (camera OFF) plug both ends of cable to their respective ports, then turn camera on. Windows should then detect the camera, (and maybe install drivers for it {"Found New Device"}), and then you should get the "your device is installed" window. If you don't get the "Copy your pictures" window, you may need to turn it off, wait a few seconds, and then power it back on before that happens.
If memory stick: Windows should detect your memory stick, again maybe it will need to install drivers,unplug, wait a few seconds, return it to the memory stick port.
Also, sometimes your product will come with it's own CD or DVD with download instructions or manuals, apps, etc., on it.

Hope this helps!

Detection problem of video cam panasonic gs90 ev


Hi

If you're using windows XP, the camera will be automatically identified.
Anyhow, try the following:
1. Check the cable for any possible defects.
2. Switch off the computer.
3. Connect the cable to both the camcorder and the firewire card.
4. Switch on the computer.
5. Switch on the camcorder.

If the cable and the firewire card are both okay then it is possible
that the camcorder firewire interface is damaged.

good luck

Cannot connect to Computer


Turn off computer. Turn ON computer and immediately hold down Apple+option+p+r. after 4 chimes let go. You are going to be using the Firewire cable. once the camera is on and plugged into computer go to : apple> about this mac> more info click on Firewire. on the right hand side you should see your camera. Now if you don't its either the Firewire port on camera or the cable it self. to further isolate. Get your older computer. leave off. plug the firewire cable into both computers. Now the older computer that is turned off. TURN ON and immediately hold down the " T " on keyboard. ON the polder mac, your screen with have like a "Y" icon.. its a Firewire icon. Now look on the other computers desktop, do you see a yellow or blue hard drive on desktop. IF you do.. ITS your camera because we just tested your cable and both ports and they are working. Now try the USB cable and see if its detected by computer by going back to Apple system profiler and see if the computer is detecting it

Turn On & Connection Problems


I have the same problem with my zr60. The firewire port on 3 macs and one PC will not detect the camera in VCR or camera mode. I have the feeling the firewire port in the camera died since the ports in the computers is able to detect other firewire devices.
