Question about Canon Elura 85 DV Digital Camcorder
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.
