Question about Canon VIXIA HV30 DV Camcorder

1 Answer

Need Canon Vixia HV30 driver

Disk that came with camera doesn't seem to have drivers, nor does the official Canon support page. I'm running Win XP with Adobe Premiere editing software. Neither Premiere nor WIn Movie Maker will recognize the camera. Don't I need drivers?

If you have windows xp or higher you don't need drivers just an intel based pc, atleast 1 or 2 gigs of memory and try it with the software that came with it...if you dont like that make SURE your version of adobe works with the HDV format....make sure your settings IN the software program are correct...and viola!...MAKE SURE YOU ARE USING A FIREWIRE 4 TO 4 OR 4 TO 6 PIN CABLE no exceptions

You may have used a different USB port on the computer. Try a different one.
Generally, any USB port would work, except that some devices create a "Virtual USB" connection that is configured with a specific USB port.

Accidentally deleted videos on built-in disk on vixia HFM31. How do I recover these?


Is there an "undelete" option in the menu anywhere?
If it is a fixed disk and there is no option to undelete, then I think it is a hard lesson learnt.
If on the other hand, it is a removable disk, put it in your PC and search the web for an "undelete program", good luck.

Macbook pro doesnt recognize my canon vixia hv30


Try a different cable, the one you're using may have got damaged.
Check the firewire driver is installed and running on the Mac.
If the camera came with software, try re-installing it.
Good luck.

I recorded a MiniDV with a HD camera the Canon HV30 to be specific. When trying to play it back on my Canon zr950 i get an error message. Will my tape only playback on an HD video camera? What do I do?


Canon ZR950 is an older Standard Definition camera that records in DV format, and does not recognize HDV format recorded by HV30.

HV30 can be switched to DV format, which should be playable on ZR950.

While trying to upload video i get std playback is locked


According to page 89 of the manual (available here), you need to set the playback standard (HDV/DV) of the camcorder to match the standard used when recording the tape. Instructions for doing this are on page 40 of the manual.
