Try removing the memory card and inserting it again.
Also, does the computer detect the camera properly?

Try different USB ports on the computer to see if its a porblem with the port connection and if there's no change there then try using another USB cable that you know is working perfectly fine.

I have the same problem, here's a 'sort of' solution. First check to see if your computer has a slot where you can plug in a PCMCIA card. (This is a thin slot about 2" wide, which probably came with a plastic blank inserted in it, which must be removed before using the connection. This type of connector is very common on laptops, less common on desktop computers. If your computer is a laptop, the PCMCIA slot is probably on one side or edge of the computer.) So, if you have a PCMCIA slot, you can buy a PCMCIA / Firewire card that plugs into the PCMCIA slot and provides you with one or two Firewire connections. Look on Ebay, these can be had for under $20. You would also need a cable with the tiny USB connector on one end (which plugs into the small female connector found uinder the gray plastic cover on the side of the ZR800) and a 6-pin Firewire connector on the other end (which you would plug into the PCMIA / Firewire adaptor card mentioned earlier.) When shopping, you may see IEEE 1394 terminology - this is the same as Firewire.) By the way, the adapter card may come with the necessary cable; see what you get before buying an additional cable separately. You will also need some software - I'm using Windows Movie Maker, which is probably already on your computer. If not, you can download it for free from Microsoft. Plug in the adapter card and turn on your PC. You should get a 'new hardware' message when it boots up. Wait for the boot up to finish, then connect the ZR800 via the cable to the PCMCIS / Firewire card and turn on the camera. You will get another 'new hardware' message as Windows recognizes the ZR800; wait a while until the 'Your new hardware is installed and ready to use' message appears. When the camera is recognized, you may see a window asking what program you want to use to capture video - select Windows Movie Maker. Once it (Movie Maker) starts up, get your camcorder tape ready, click 'Capture from video device' on your PC, then click 'Start Capture'. It will create a file (you pick the name) on your PC from the camera. You can use Movie Maker to edit, re-sequence the scenes, etc. (You can also buy video editing software if you want fancier features than Movie Maker provides.) Now here's the catch - why my initial statement says this is a 'sort of' fix. I hooked up my ZR800 as described here to a one-year-old Gateway model W323-UI1 laptop, and the video captured from the ZR800 contained many ramdonly blinking colored pixels superimposed on the movie and the audio has lots of static. When I hooked it all up to an older Dell Inspiron 8200 laptop, it worked great. Hope this helps, good luck!

Hi there connect the camera via data cable and make sure the camera connectivity setting is USB connection. After that open the software. You can see all the photos on that software page. Just save them.

I'm trying to connect my canon hv 20 to my macbook pro, and the computer won't detect the camera.


Connect via USB to see contents of the miniSD card. Connect via Firewire to do anything with recorded video/audio. USB setting may require further fooling around with camera settings to be visible on some computers, since the miniSD card should mount, just like a flash drive. I have one of these camcorders and this all works just fine.

When I connect my camera to my laptop it wont download photos. It did download themu p to recently. When I connect my Rebel to my laptop, it won't download the photos.  Worked fine until recently.


Are you using the software to do the download? Or did you take the card out and use a card reader. If you used a card reader, sometimes you have to re-format the card in the camera via the menu before you use it again. Hope this helps.

Can't print to mac wirelessly (could do it a few days ago)


I had the same problem until recently. You have to install the drivers FROM THE CD that came with the printer, instead of selecting the drivers from the default list. Then, when selecting which printer driver to use (you'll have two options) choose Canon IJ and NOT Canon MX310 series. This is a problem with their MX310 driver, which is solved using a default/generic Canon InkJet (hence, the IJ) driver. Hope this helps!
P.S. This only works on Mac OS X. I have yet to figure out how to print wirelessly through Vista. Will keep you posted.

Use as mass storage device


Connecting a camera to computer via a USB to download is one thing- Connecting a camera to Computer to feed back the the card is another. The chances are the firmware on the camera will not accept anything that is not in EXIF format. Try it -simply connect camera in the normal way. This will if you have the normal A C D drives will come up us removable storage -'E' with the appropriate icon in 'My computer' Now pick a file[s] and using the normal Edit/ Select/ Copy[Or right click] routine then go to the removable media['E?' right click paste See what you get- you wont break anything
