Transfer recording from camcorder to pc then burn to disc

Hi i've got a Canon MV550i camcorder, I am trying to transfer the taped items to my computer and then to burn it to disc. When connecting the USB cable to camcorder and pc nothing happens. Do I need to download any devices from the web? Or am I going about this completely in the wrong direction. I would be grateful for any help advice or tips.
thanks Ian

    Thanks for the advice regarding downloading software. But is it not possible to use software that is already on your pc? Like Windows movie maker or similar? I have recently changed from a pc, where the software was fine, but I no longer have access to the software. Is it essential to buy something new or can I get it for free somewhere? Thanks

Can I hook up to the DW 100 Canon burner with my ZR200 to burn mini tapes on DVD?


No. The Canon USA web site says the Canon DW-100 has a USB terminal and works with "USB 2.0 Hi-Speed (with compatible Canon camcorders only)." In other words, the Canon DW-100 burner works only with Canon's USB 2.0 camcorders. I have a Canon ZR200. The ZR200 has Firewire 400 digital video output, not USB 2.0 output. The USB port on the ZR200 is ONLY for still images. Video will not and cannot be output through the USB port on the ZR200. (Page 121 in the ZR200 manual mentions using the USB port on your camcorder for transferring still JPEG images to your computer.) You need a DVD burner with "DV Input" (also called Firewire 400 or IEEE 1394) to hook up your camcorder to burn Mini-DV tapes onto DVD. The Sony VRDMC10 Stand Alone DVD Recorder/Player has DV Input. The ZR200 camcorder did not come with a Firewire cable, but you can buy one at any electronics store or at a cheaper price online. Make sure that you get the right kind of Firewire cable, 4-pin to 4-pin or 4-pin to 6-pin, whatever the DVD burner you choose requires. (Your ZR200 has a 4-pin DV port on the camera's end.) USB 2.0 Hi-Speed (with compatible Canon camcorders only)

Hi,
To transfer your canon data in tape, you need to install driver of canon mini dv in your computer. Then paired your canon with computer trough usb to make data transferring. To burn a dvd disc you need to install software for dvd burner like Nero S in your computer to edit your AV and burn into DVD disc. Make sure your computer have DVD R/W to do so.

I have a really old Canovision8, E40, 8mm camcorder that doesn't work anymore. What's the best solution to convert the tapes to DVD or to the computer?


Hi,
You need Hi-8 camcorder/ Hi-8 player to playback your old Video-8 tapes, hook that camcorder/ player with DVD Recorder, play video-8 tapes and burn DVDs directly.

Transfering 8mm video tapes to dvds


Hi there. You need to transfer your videos to your computer and then burn them to DVD using a program like Record Now, or Nero. You should be able to get this from Best Buy, or you can get it online from their websites. If you have any other questions, let me know with a comment. Thanks for coming to FixYa.

Canon MV550i Mini DV Digital- red flashing symbol


from canon's support page:

This symbol indicates an empty or missing backup battery. The backup battery allows the camcorder to retain date, time and other settings when the main power source is removed.
The flashing symbol is not recorded by the camcorder so you can continue filming without problems.

To stop the flashing symbol remove the old backup battery and replace it with a new one, or recharge the built-in lithium battery if the camcorder has a built-in rechargeable battery.
Note: when the backup battery runs out during filming please do not remove the power supply (battery pack) before the camcorder is powered from a household power source and power adapter, or the user settings and date/time will be reset.

For more detailed information please consult the instruction manual.

Transfering video to Mac


I believe that camera only works with firewire. You might want to check with Canon to see if there is compatibility problems with Macs. I know it works on Windows computers.

Transfering video to Mac


Digital video on the ZR400 is transferred to a computer only via the DV out port, which will connect to a firewire port on a PC or a Mac. USB will not transfer video, only images to and from the card.
