You can connect camcorder with Acer Aspire using a USB port and cable.
But this interface only allows transfer of still images from the SD card on the camera. It will not allow video images to be transferred from the tape.
Some models of Acer also have flywire interface (IEEE1394) and also SD card reader. You can use these also to download video images from the camcorder.
The fault seems to be in the sensor and the mode switch of the loading system which is connected with the main controller processor and loading driver. This can be a failure of the tape end detector which is a IR - infra red- emitter which is placed in the center of the tape tray and MUST feed continuous signal to the END IR detectors placed at either ends. Also the tape seems to load with a false detection of the cassette within when the tray is closed for this reason of the failure along with a possible misplaced mode switch settings. This triggers to make the loading move without a reason and so can be due to failure of the the mode switch or unbalanced settings.You will need some experience to remove the tray unit, then check on the IR sensors and also check the settings of the loading drive and mode switch.
try it without inserting cassette if it closes correctly and doesnt load with cassette then 99% problem is with drum motor.look out for drum motor connector remove it clean it with pencil eraser and try again if it works, fine or just replace drum motor
I have had this camera for around 4 years now. It works fine. I basically plug in the firewire connection on my camera switch it on to playback/camera mode then plug the other end into to my computer my operating system picks it up fine without any problems. It doesn't require any drivers windows will auto install any drivers it needs. Not sure why you are getting this problem.
The "remove Tape" error message on Canon DV camcorders is a general message meaning something is not correct with the tape transport system. These are miniature precision mechanisms and It could be anything from dew sensors to head motor, capstan drive etc. If the cassette drawer closes OK with no tape inserted then the tape sensor/ end tape sensor is operating. With no tape inserted the head drum does not run when the drawer closes but it does with a tape present. Does the head drum start up when you load a tape or is there no noise at all? If the head runs then it is possible the capstan is not starting or is jammed. If the head does not run then the cure will be either extremely tedious and delicate or very expensive. These units do not dismantle easily so unless you have some experience with this, or are willing to take a risk, then I would not recommend it. However, without such action you may have to write-off the unit anyway. Canon's repair charge will exceed the camera's value unless it's still under warranty. Your best option would be to find a local repairer that is willing to look at it, but I wouldn't be too optimistic .To some, this error message is a major issue when deciding to buying canon dv cameras. However, they are great little cameras and treated kindly will give many hours of excellent service. Don't store the camera with tapes loaded. don't subject it to sudden temperature changes or excessive vibration. Store it in a dry protected atmosphere and refrain from taking it onto the beach (salt AND sand !!!!) when on holiday etc.
I have one of these. Sounds like you have a fault. Try removing the battery and any tapes. Also you might want to try and replacing the penny size battery it has which keeps the time and date up to date.
When did it last work and what did you last do with it. eg. if you've taken it out of a cold storage such as a loft and then into a warm place you might find that it fails to work because of condensation build up in the internal circuits. Keep it it a warm place for a while and see if it makes any difference.
Usually the drive mechanism is made up of rubber rollers, belt, etc. If these are worn out (in time), the drive mechanism will slide and will not be able to rotate the tape. If the cam cannot detect the movement ?n the tape then it will efect it.
