USB is not for transferring video from this camcorder. What you need is a firewire cable to connect camcorder to your computer. If you don't have firewire port on computer, you need to get install a firewire card.

Still shots are stored on the card while movies are stored on the tape. You can transfer still images by placing the card in a media reader or by using a USB cable.
To transfer video you need a DV cable (not supplied with the camcorder). If you don't have a DV cable you can pick one up at BestBuy or most electronics stores.
In addition to the DV cable you also need software to transfer video. I understand Windows Movie Maker will work, but I use a product called Scenalzyer. You can download a free version of Scenalzyer at www.scenalyzer.com. The demo copy is fully functional but will leave a "watermark" on your video. You have to pay for it in order to transfer without the watermark. I think this camcorder may have even come with some software, but I'm not sure.
Many computers will automatically recognize these cameras as soon as they're plugged in, but some will require you to load driver software.
Take a look at this website if you don't have your manual and software guide:
You can download the manuals in pdf format at the above link.
Lastly, I want you to know that I'm not paid to provide these suggestions. It's a strange hobby I know, but I just like to help when I can. If you found this information helpful I hope you will rate it positively. Over half the solutions I've posted have not been rated.

YES!!! I GOT IT!!! Ok so the comp doesn't recognize the damn camera. I went around the problem!!! OOO so excited!!! Ok sooo simple, you'll slap yourself! Ok. First plug in your USB cord to the comp and you'll see the options play on pc, pc connection, etc. Select CREATE DVD! (You won't be able to see or select any of the files you are going to import, oh well.) You should see the regular screen pop up that says import, create, view pictures. Click IMPORT PICTURES. It will automatically import both pictures and video. For file name write something you can easily locate, ex: AAAAAAAAAAAAAA (you can change it later) Then open MOVIE MAKER. Click on IMPORT on the upper left hand corner and you'll see their demo video listed. Click on picture and video files on the bottom right hand corner and select ALL FILES. You should see what was downloaded!!! YAY!! I haven't burn a DVD yet but the files are there and the program should do it from there!
