Question about Cannon Cameras
I have got my new notebook with Windows Vista. It does not allow me to use the CD for Windows that I got on the day of purchase of my Cannon digital video camcorder NTSC ZR70mc. How would I get a software that allows me to view and edit my videos with Windows Vista?
Try going to canon.com website to see if the file download is available. Wi8ll need model #.

the software is not compatible with vista and as the camera is around 5 years old, i doubt nikon will release a patch for it. that said you don't need that software anyway, just plug your camera in via the usb lead switch it on , click on my computer, find your camera, click on it and copy the pictures to where you want. you can then use virtualy any software to view and edit them. if you go to the freesoftware4all website they have some usefull free programmes you could use.
hope this helps

I believe you have to pull the files from your computer into Movie Maker. Open Windows Movie Maker and use the import feature to get the video files.

It is a common problem on digital rebel. The problem is a factory defect caused by a factory defective autofocus sub mirror. The problem is known to most repairers ( and sadly to users ). Although the defect due to the camera design, Canon never acknowledge that this is a factory defect, and never issued a recall and free repair notice for DR defective autofocus.
THe repair is done replacing the mirror. The cost ranges between $120 and $180.
As first line of action, check any of the links below, and call Canon. Complain, and see if you can get discounted repair.
If that does not work, the alternatives are using the camera with no AF, or having the camera repaired at own expenses. Often the sub mirror may get even more stuck, and pictures start showing the black shadow from mirror on lower part of the picture.
This is the cause of your troubles:
Here one of several repair websites dealing with the problem. I quote:
"Most autofocus repairs are related to problems with the small mirror under the main mirror (known as the sub-mirror). There is a plastic post that operated this mirror which sometimes breaks. We replace this post with a brass pin so that the problem will not recur. "
Here one of the many forums on the problem. Please read the testimonial from other users, it is quite instructive.
Here replacement pin.
Here how to do the repair.
Here Canon contact:Canon technical support phone number.
