Re: Sharp VL-Z5 as a WebCam
You can but it requires a capture program to do it. You can't use it for chat sessions or IM programs such as Windows Live. Pinnacle Studio will allow you to record to hard drive directly through the firewire cable.

turn camera on, (on record side.) then press display button, go to menu, then select execute, press execute, that will bring you to settings 1 scroll down, the menu will get longer. you will find language selection there. .
I have put a new cassette in my VL-Z5 camcorder and the display says "eject the cassette". My problem is that the cassette will not eject when the cover is opened. Battery is fully charged and I've also tried it with power supply connected?
Okay so I have carried out some research on the problem you are having.
The VL-DC5 does not have drivers online to download because the drivers in windows XP support this model camcorder The problem is that you are probably trying to connect the device to your computer using USB. The drivers in windows XP are only compatible with this camcorder when using Firewire cables. If you don't have a firewire cable then you will need to buy one and use this to connect your camcorder to your pc. It should work fine after you have tried this. Let me know how you get on!
I had the same problem with the VL-NZ50. It wasn't the camera, it was the IEEE 1394 interface on the laptop(s) - I tried two different ones, one XP, the other W7 64; both were HPs with on-board (OHCI compliant) TI IEEE-1394 chipsets.
Then I tried a Gateway desktop (Vista) with an on-board Ricoh IEEE 1394 interface: the VL-NZ50 was recongnized instantly, controlled by the PC and transferring video flawlessly.
If you want it to work with your laptop , try an Adaptec PCMCIA card (I've heard they work with this camera), they can be had for under $10.
To transfer video you need to use firewire, not usb. If you use firewire to connect, set the camera to the 'play' icon and then open up a capture program (ie, movie maker) you should be able to just record/capture from there. Good luck!
You should have the driver on the cdrom that came with the cam, as it may well be hidden within the software if you have'nt installed it.
But if the problem continues, uninstal the current drivers in add/remove programmes and re install and add your cam to a different usb port than before, although i would of thought firewire connection would be more suitable for speedier transfers.
