Question about Canon HV20 HDV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Arghhhh! Why isn't my HV20 canon camera detected through Vista???

I have a hp laptop and just purchased an HV20 canon camera ... the thing is my computer just won't recognize it. I've installed a digital video solution disk but that hasn't helped either. All the equipment is brand new. What the hell! Could someone please help me???

    Great, I'll give that a try! Many thanks for the responses!

    Tshane, tried all that you suggested but still no luck I'm afraid! When I connect the camera to the cpu and switch over from tape to card, shazam! It recognises it but not the tape ... very frustrating indeed! Also the Digital Solution Disc that came with the camera isn't compatible with vista...Arghhhhh...
    Thoughts would be thoroughly appreciated! Darko

Hi, I have a canon hv20. My camera is not allowing the dv tape to eject. Do you have any ideas on how to make the cage open for me? I'm in desperate need! I will be needing this camera to capture a...


This may be a dumb response, but is the camera receiving power? You can't open the cage without power, and if your battery is dead and the camera isn't plugged in, that could be the problem. My broadcast students make this error a lot.

Problem for Canon HV20 HDV Digital Camcorder Camcorder not loading cassette


This is usually caused by a defective component in the tape detection circuitry and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it’s not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

I'm trying to connect my canon hv 20 to my macbook pro, and the computer won't detect the camera.


Connect via USB to see contents of the miniSD card. Connect via Firewire to do anything with recorded video/audio. USB setting may require further fooling around with camera settings to be visible on some computers, since the miniSD card should mount, just like a flash drive. I have one of these camcorders and this all works just fine.

Dirty heads


I work for canon and when I get one this dirty I use a tape that has been recorded with used or almost used up. I let the tape rewind and fast forward all the way through. I then use a soft head cleaning tape for 25 secs. If that doesn't work then it might need an adjustment.

Yes..it's available from a reseller that works with Canon. If you can give me the actual model number from that unit, and perhaps a serial number, we'll be able to proceed.

OTOH, that question about the Canon and Final Cut, that's usual. Those folks don't even go to the same conventions or seminars.

Digital madness.
