No Audio When Importing from Canon ZR960

Hey there! I am trying to import video (and accompanying audio) from a miniDV tape onto a casting software on my computer. The video goes through flawlessly, but the audio won't play. I've done it successfully before, so I know it can be done. But I feel like some setting got switched, and now it's not working. Anyone know which setting that might be? I've looked through the manual, but not finding anything... Thanks!!

Its possible that you have some problem in the head-record and need some cleaning job. No, if your original-master record isnt good quality video or sound are cut, no way to recovery.

Isnt a good news but is all that we can comment. Try first with time clean head.

SOURCE: Tape won't eject on Canon Optura 20 MiniDV. About

This can be caused by several problems including a defective eject switch in the cameras internal circuitry or a bad motor and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

How do you put video from your camcorder to your computer?


With a Canon ZR70MC camcorder, you can record video onto miniDV tape, or onto the SDmemory card in Card Camera mode.

To access video on the miniDV tape, you will use the DV cable (IEEE 1394 aka FireWire). Connecting this cable to your windows computer will allow you to transfer high quality video using the software supplied on the digital video solutions disc, or just about any other windows video editing software.

To access videos stored on the SD memory card, remove the card and place it in a card reader connected to your computer, or attach a usb cord to the camera and the computer. Video stored on the memory card is limited to 10 second clips @ 320x240 resolution.

You need to make sure you have the audio stream in the download, it will be on a seperate channel, look at the program, the audio and viideo are seperate, If you need help I will be around, hopefully someone who is helping you has used the software before, I have it on my machine, and it can be a little intimidating at first, just look for the seperate audio.

Audio problem importing video from JVC GR-D320E


I think it might have to do with the upload process. It's a long shot but have you tried watching the video as you watch it? It may give the computer more processing time (time to clean it up a bit) before having to finalize. Some computers are just not up to date yet but if you have a mac it should work. The computer might need a few "practice runs" as well. Hope that helps.

Playing DV footage that was recorded on a different camera


Canon camcorders have a non-standard head position. Borrow a panasonic or samsung camcorder (those two are compatible) and backup your casettes on dvds. If you want them to be on minidv readable on canon camcorder, connect it afterwards and send video to minidv through your camcorder. It will then be alligned the way that suites your gear.

Either that or go to the professional service that does conversion from minidv tapes. That usually costs around 15$ per hour, so if you have 10 or more hours of video, the less expensive way is buying an entry model of panasonic camcorder.

Adapter question


There are no such adapters that would allow 8mm, Hi8 and Mini DV tapes to be played in a VHS VCR. Only the old VHS-C tapes can fit and play in an adapter. There are several reasons why 8mm (or Hi8 and miniDV tapes) cannot be physically played in a VHS VCR: 1. 8mm (Hi8, miniDV) is a different format with different technical characteristics than VHS. These formats were never developed with the intention to be mechanically compatible with current VHS technology. 2. 8mm/Hi8 tapes are 8mm wide (miniDV is 6mm wide), while VHS tape is 1/2" wide, making it impossible for a VHS video head to read the taped information correctly. 3. 8mm/Hi8/miniDV tapes are recorded and played at different speeds than VHS, so even if the tapes could physically fit into a standard VHS VCR, the VCR still couldn't play back the tapes at their correct speeds. 4. 8mm/Hi8/minDV audio is recorded differently than VHS. 8mm/Hi8 audio is recorded in AFM HiFi mode, while miniDV audio is recording in 12-Bit or 16-Bit PCM digital audio format. So, even if the video could be played back in a VHS VCR, the audio could not be read properly. 5. 8mm/Hi8 video is of higher resolution than VHS and is recorded in a different bandwidth length (miniDV video is recorded digitally), so once again, a standard VCR still could not read the information correctly, even if the tape could fit into a VCR.
