ZR500 doesn't support windows 7 64bit. Your camcorder will say DV-in if plugged into any such input.

SOURCE: what do i need to connect my canon zr500 camcorder

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.

SOURCE: can get mt canon zr500

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.

Sony DCR-HC52E connected with Firewire not detected in moviemaker


The Camcorder will flash the DV IN message as soon as the i.LINK/Firewire cable is connected to the Camcorder.

If you are getting the DV IN message then it indicates that the Camcorder recognize the connection.

You can use any video capturing software like Windows Movie Maker to transfer the video from the Computer.

Refer this link for the instruction to transfer the video to the Computer using i.LINK cable.

http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/documentLink.do?externalId=C111893

If you are not getting the DV IN message as soon as the i.LINK cable is connected with the Camcorder then the issue may be with either the Camcorder or with the i.LINK cable.

Try resetting the Camcorder or try with different i.LINK cable. Locate the RESET button behind the LCD screen of the Camcorder. (You will be able to locate the RESET button by opening the LCD Screen. The Camcorder should be switched ON when you reset the unit. Press the RESET button using a sharp-pointed object).

NOTE: Resetting the Camcorder will reset the settings of the Camcorder to the factory settings including date and time. It will not delete any data saved in the Camcorder.

If the issue still persists after resetting the Camcorder and with different i.LINK cable then your Camcorder requires service to resolve the issue.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cannot download video, only Card pictures


I do not know MACs, but a standard 4-pin to 6-pin firewire (IEEE1394) is needed. On Windows XP, plug it in, run Windows Movemaker and you are good to go. By the way, a "DV cable" is a firewire cable.

If your MAC cannot "see" your camcorder, try another firewire device to see if your MAC is the culprit, or drag your camcorder and firewire cable to a friend's PC running Windows XP and see if it works.

I have jvc GR d720 dv camcorder but unable to connect .. driver required ... i have firewire send me in khairnar.abhijeet@gmail.com


No driver required for Windows XP. I simply plugged in the camera via FireWire. Windows automatically recognizes it as a digital video device. Then I started up Windows Movie Maker and followed the wizard to capture the movie from my digital video device. It was really easy.

My computer no longer recognizes my JVC GR-D70U mini DV cam when I plug it into a usb port.


Hi, I am not sure. But I believe the camcorder has to be on when you connect to the computer. and I assume you use firewire for this particular camcorder.
I too once had this problem when I used Windows Vista. If you too use Vista, try it with Windows XP.

XP will not recignize my ZR200 as a valid input device


On your computer, go to <start><my computer>. Right click on My computer and select "properties". Select "hardware" and then "device manager". On the drop down menu, select the hub in question and be sure it is not "disabled". Also be sure that the power options on this hub "never expire", as Windows default sets a given time for this....accordianman

Vista and firewire 1394?


Firewire works fine under Vista, but it's quite possible your USB to Firewire bridge doesn't have proper Vista drivers. You wouldn't expect Vista to include these, they would be installed from a disc that came with your adaptor. USB to Firewire is a questionable option at best... there are often problems with it. You may be better off with a PC-Card or ExpressCard solution, if the laptop is your only computer.

Also, when the camera says "DV IN", it's expecting video from the PC to be sent to it, it's not in capture mode. Most camcorders must be in either "play" mode, or a special "link to PC" mode in order to even be recognized by Windows (any version) as a video input device.

However, until you resolve the issue of supporting your Firewire device in Vista, nothing the camcorder does will be an issue yet. You should check the documentation that came with your USB to Firewire device, the driver disc, etc. for information on Vista support.
