    Hi. I have a Canon ZR830 and I am having trouble downloading the video from tape to my Mac (OSX 10.4.11). It's strange because it worked perfectly for a while but now when I have it connected and on (I checked the connections), the camera is not even recognized. This happened all of a sudden and has me really confused. Any ideas?

Digital Video (DV) camcorders use a small port, usually located underneath the LCD flip-out screen, or behind a small plastic cover on the camera's body. My Canon has it on the front under the microphone. A special cable is required to plug into this port, and then into either the computer's USB or Firewire port. The camera is turned on, plugged in and Windows XP/Vista will offer to import the footage.
Analog (8MM, Hi-8, VHS-C) use a cable that has a headphone type plug on one end and audio/video RCA plugs on the other. These camcorders require you to equip the computer with a video capture device.
Without knowing the model of the camcorder, it is impossible to give any additional information. The operating system you are using would also be helpful information.

How can I connect my Canon Camcorder MV700 to my computer Acer aspire L3600 ?

Please refer page 118 of the manual of Cannon MV700 available from this website.

You can connect camcorder with Acer Aspire using a USB port and cable.
But this interface only allows transfer of still images from the SD card on the camera. It will not allow video images to be transferred from the tape.

Some models of Acer also have flywire interface (IEEE1394) and also SD card reader. You can use these also to download video images from the camcorder.

I am borrowing the schools Cannon HV-20 HD Video Camcorder to copy my son's soccer games and the camera is not being recognized by my computer. I have it connected via a USB cable.

You may have to go to Cannon's web site and download the software for that video camera to your computer. Some computers will not automatically see all devises on it's own without the specific software for it. I know before I switched to using Macs I usually always had to download the software. Even w/ the macs you sometimes have to do so. At least Cannon's web site should offer some tips and solutions for using that product.

Can't get my Cannon zr 90 to work, there's a flashing red light in viewer

yes, I found the manual downloads on Canon's webpage. I wish I could figure out how to transfer my tape videos to a computer. I bought the $50,00 DV-1394 cord and nothing happens--computer doesn't recognize the camera.
