Question about Canon MV530i Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Connecting to computer

Please could you help - I have a  Canon MV530i Digital Video camcorder and cannot get it installed on the computer.  The message comes up saying 'Windows could not find software for your device.  I have installed the digital video solution disk.  I have Windows Vista on my computer.


I do not have enough knowledge of the computer to fix this myself.

Thanks in anticipation.

How to record from a VCR onto a canon mv530i

OK get a set of cord that can be used, on the back of most VCR's there is RCA Sockets for Video & Audio out... generally Red & White & Yellow these go to the corresponding inputs on the camera's Video & Audio inputs, OR Correct adapter. The camera must have the correct A/V INPUT selected. Then start the VCR to "Play" the tape, and set the Camera to "Record" this will/should then record the output from the VCR to the memory in the Camera.
