Hi, connect the cam and PC using 4 pin firewire cable. Switch on the cam. Open Windows Movie Maker and import the video from device.

Can get mt canon zr500 camcorder to get reccognized on my laptop.. i have windows vista on my laptop...i'm trying to transfer my mini dv tapes on my canon zr500 to my computer..what do i have to do?


You have to use a firewire connection in order to transfer your videos. The cambera will not transfer the videos through the usb ports. There is no specific driver for Vista, and this isn't a driver issue. Use your firewire port and cable, and you should be fine.
Good luck,and hope this helps.

What do i need to connect my canon zr500 camcorder to my pc?


IF, your camcorder has FIREWIRE, than you can use that, and suitable DVR software. IF not, then I always recommend that, one use a TV/Video "Capture" card or USB "Dongle", either way, you simply connect that up, via, the AV, leads, usually S-VHS, or Composite, Or Component, or Firewire, Use a DVR, and basically, "Play" the "Video" and "Record" on the PC, with Digital Video Recorder, DVR, and save as a "Digital Format" then you can do whatever you wish, after recording. You can get propretory software from the manufacturers website, and download, drivers, and software to do as you wish. I recommend a program called Dscaler, it is the BEST DVR there is.

Pink lines when i play back my tapes on my canon zr500


Hopefull your not going through the tv and then to your dvd recorder
transfer should go straight from your camera to the dvd recorder.
you may also want to but a head cleaner for a mini dv camcorder,run it twice and try recoding again.If that doesnt work,you may have a problem with the heads inside of the camera.If thats the case,it would need to go to canon or an authorized service center.

When i connect canon zr 500 cam, a message says "no driver installed" can u help


Hi,

You need to have a Windows operating system later than Windows 98 Second Edition or a Mac with an OS later than 9. The driver for your camera is include with all later operating systems. Canon does not supply a separate driver for it.

There is software that can be downloaded from: ZR500 Downloads but it will not help without a driver installed.

Thanks for using Fixya.

FireWire for camcorder mini dv


Go to this link. Click on "Frequently Asked Questions" and then click on the appropriate link (#4). Basically, once the firewire cable is connected, make sure that the camcorder is in the playback mode, is turned on, and you see "DV IN" on the LCD. If all that is happening, your computer/software should be able to "see" the camcorder and download the video.

I need to import video from my canon zr500 to my pc


Hi!

You can import videos from your camcorder to your PC using a DV cable. Check this page from the user guide of your camcorder.

Basically, you need a firewire port and a DV cable. Most computers (new ones) already have firewire ports (or 1394 ports).


I hope that helps.

Good luck and have a nice day!

Canon zr500


The ZR500 has a firewire port that is best for tranferring video to your pc, so a firewire cable would be needed -- and you would need a firewire card in your pc to accept it. It might also have a USB port (don't have it in front of me right now). I've never used USB to transfer video, but I think it would work fine.

There is no software that comes with the camera. It is up to whatever application you are using to edit the video to import it.
