Uploading video from my Cannon Elura 100 to my MacBook

Hello-
I just bought a MacBook (not the Pro) and I cannot upload the video from my Cannon Elura to the computer.  It isn't even recognizing that it connected to the USB.  There have been some forums suggesting FireWire or card, but there isn't even a location for adding the device.  Any suggestions? Thanks for your help!!

I am beginning the same search, amandh, but I suspect the news will be bad. The Canon DV cameras are built to upload still images via USB and video footage via Firewire, but MacBooks have left the Firewire protocol behind, just like SCSI and floppy disks. USB and Firewire are apples and oranges, and to convert one to the other, you need a translator of some sort, and the fix won't be a new type of cable from Radio Shack

Try using the image capture utility when connected to the computer. canons are notorious for forcing you to use image utilities (picture wizard in windows and image capture in macos). my canon xsi did the same thing.

My cannon PowerShot SX150IS is not uploading all of the pictures on my camera only some of them Why and how do I correct this


ALTERNATE WAY TO TRANSFER PHOTOS AND VIDEOS TO A COMPUTER
If your photos and videos are stored on the memory card, then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader. Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of your working computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device or an external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card and copy the photos and to your computer. Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. You can copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off your memory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing any programs.

I have an older canon mini tape camcorder and my mac pro wont recognize it for uploading


You could try the cannon website to see if there are any driver updates for your model. Cannon may have a users forum, which you might be able to pin point the problem there, If that doesn't work try the mac website for updates etc.

I bought a 16GB sandisk sdhc card for my Cnaon Elura 100. It says card error and will not initialize. What next?


Your camera is designed to use SD cards, not SDHC cards which are a later evolution of the SD card with different technical standards.

Your fix is to either stick with mini DV tapes or with SD cards with a maximum 2GB capacity.

Windows Vista doesn't recognize camera


well, first, u should check what format of the video file from your cannon. In my opinion, it may be mod format, and vista and lots of players will not support mod. u should try to convert mod to some regular format .

Facebook video issues


Hello,

This could be true because of the file size and also on the speed of your ISP. And try checking if the file extension ends with .flv, if you are uploading .mpeg, .mov this also could affect the uploading speed.

Mac book wont recognize my cannon elura 100


try the image capture utility. I hooked up my Canon XSi and thought the same problem (bad interface or bad cord) when it was simply not setup to open a program. Canons are notorious for forcing you to use image capture utilities on both mac and pc.

Dv out no longer deems to work on dm xm2


Sounds like the DV Port has suffered a short circuit. Unfortunately, the only way to fix this, is to take it to a reputable camera repair shop, or send it to cannon if it is under warranty.
