Lucy,
This camera doesn't have a USB port - you must use a firewire port.

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)

I have connected my canon xm2 to the computer via the usb cable but nothing is happening? how do i get my videos on the computer?


It looks like the USB port on this camera is used to transfer stills only. The camera has a DV port for a "Firewire" connection to stream video to a computer, but most PCs don't have such a port (Macs do). You can add Firewire ports to a PC using an add-on card. You will need a cable too. These things are available cheaply on eBay or Amazon.

VHS to Canon MV450i transfer or direct to Mac


The MV450i has an AV input. So get a lead to go from the AV out from the VCR to the AV input at the front RHS of the lens (3 pin stereo jack socket behind grey cover - the lead was supplied with the camera). Go to the buttons behind the screen - press the line in button - camera goes to pause. Se the VCR playing - press the play / focus button to start recording to the tape.. Import to imovie as you normally do.

Canon vixia hv 30 not recognized by computer


This camcorder uses USB for pictures only. To access pictures, plug in USB cable, set the camcorder to Play and to Memory Card.

To transfer video you need a firewire cable and card. Actual cable will depend on connection your computer has, typically it will be something like this: FireWire_cables.jpg

Additionally, to transfer video you will need a video capture software and codecs, unless the software has the codecs (Nero does). Unfortunately all free video editing software I tried was unable to deal with HD. I had various levels of success with Windows Movie Makver, Ulead and Nero.

You may want to record video in non-HD, and see if you are able to capture that. If your computer can capture that but not HD, and you have the codecs installed, you will need to investigate your computer.

If all you need is a codec, here is a good free candidate: K-Lite Mega Codec Pack


It is of course very frustrating that Canon would include nothing with the camcorder to assist users with video caputure.

Use a firewire cable. Your camera has a 4pin on it (DV port). Your HP laptop may have a 4 pin DV port in the back of it as well.

What model laptop is it?
