Question about Canon ZR800 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I have a Canon ZR800. I wanted to transfer video directly to a DVD recorder using a 4-pin to 4-pin cable. Apparently, the DVD recorder does not recognize the camcorder. I tried this with 2 different DVD recorders with no success. I also tried 3 different DV cables. That assures that the problem is not the cable. However, I am able to upload video to my labtop using 4-pin to 6-pin firewire cable. So, I am stumped as to why the 4-pin to 4-pin interface is not working. Any help would be appreciated.
Just want to make sure you are talking about a four-pin firewire cable (small and flat) as opposed to a 4-pin s-video cable (round).
If you are talking about the latter, there is no control signal in an s-video cable so there is no "recognition" possible. Make sure that you have your DVD recorder set to S-video in and then hit play on the camcorder. You will need audio cables too if you want sound transferred. You should see video after you have manually pressed "play" on the camcorder.

Tips for a great answer:
I'm sorry for the difficulties you're experiencing in transferring videos from the Camcorder to the Windows 7 Operating System. The USB streaming driver for the Camcorder is not available
for Windows 7 OS from Sony at this point. Hence it is not possible to transfer
videos using USB interface. You may use i.LINK or A/V interface to transfer
videos from the Camcorder to the Computer which is running on Windows 7
follow the steps to transfer video to a computer using an i.LINK connection
IMPORTANT: Video capture software and a compatible video capture card must be installed on the computer. Depending on the computer manufacturer, various video capture cards and software (Adobe Premiere, Roxio Video Wave, Microsoft Windows Movie Maker, etc.) may be available or already installed on your computer. If necessary, contact the manufacturer of your computer for further information.
NOTE: Many Sony VAIO computers are bundled with Sony DVgate Motion or DVgate Plus software for video capturing. Some VAIO computers also include Click To DVD software that will allow video capture to the computer hard drive or directly to a DVD.
NOTE: The computer i.LINK ports and capture cards
may have either 4-pin or 6-pin connections. Sony digital camcorders use i.LINK
ports with 4 pins. If your computer only has a 6-pin i.LINK port, then it will
be necessary to use a 4-pin to 6-pin i.LINK cable.
It should now be possible to copy the video using
the video capture software if the computer hardware and software are configured
Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if you require any clarifications.
