Hi!

You can import videos from your camcorder to your PC using a DV cable. Check this page from the user guide of your camcorder.

Basically, you need a firewire port and a DV cable. Most computers (new ones) already have firewire ports (or 1394 ports).


I hope that helps.

Good luck and have a nice day!

Hi, connect the cam and PC using 4 pin firewire cable. Switch on the cam. Open Windows Movie Maker and import the video from device.

I had a similar problem. Searching Google for a solution, I came across the old -- "if it doesn't work, smack it" trick:

Remove any tape in the camera.
Remove the battery.

With your hand holding the top of camera, hit it firmly with a book on the bottom. I used about a 200 page paperback.

I suspect it is a electro-mechanical switch that gets stuck in the "On" position, and a little jolt frees it up again.

I have done this twice in the last month, and it works great.

I have a Canon Elura 85 camcorder, and a "remove the cassette" message came up. But the tape wont eject. What should I do?


Tape mechanism problems can be quite complicated. This will require disassembling the camera to repair the tape mechanism and can be done fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

We are trying to get some Hi8 footage onto our macintosh computer. We have both the VHS camera and the Elura 90. We have a firewire and have successfully transfered lots of digital video onto the computer,...


the procedure is the same ..for vhs...but you will need a firewire cable ..also ..and a program that will import from device...The issue is that Im not sure what program you need for MAC ..but if you have a windows computer available to do that ..things are getting simple..just follow this video..
http://www.5min.com/Video/Windows-Movie-Maker---import-from-a-DV-tape-6876
So...if you have a movie maker in your Mac ..the procedure will be the same ,just playback in the camera ...be sure it is detected by the firewire cable...and record (import ) with the movie maker...
Please dont forget to rate if this helps...

Tape will not eject


Hi, The tape sounds to have undone inside your machine, be careful if its important home video etc. Try use a blunt kitchen knife to prise it open, the camera drawers are stronger than they look, this worked for me. Thanks

How do you get videos from a cannon elura 85 onto iMovie?


Use wall power, not battery power. Set camera to Play (not PC Connect)

Open iMovie, wait a minute or so for import screen. If it does not come up, click the camcorder button.

I need help!


i had the same problem, i shut the camera off, hit the cassette door a few times (not kidding) and when i turned it on it was fixed. the zoom bar will not show on the camera screen, but it won't keep zooming in by itself!! i had gotten this advice from people who had a similiar problem with the elura 60's models, must be a problem across the board.

Take the camcorder to an authorised service center. They will have to open the camera up and have to manualy operate the mechanics to have an ejection of the tape. Most likely there is a failure in the camera that will have to be maintenenaced.
