Question about Canon HV10 HDV Digital Camcorder
My PC seems to detects the camera being plugged in via the DV (IEEE1394) cable but will not recognize it when try to capture video. It's set to play mode but just can't seem to make the connection to upload the video footage. Any ideas?
SOURCE: Can't transfer video to PC
I could not find the manual for this model on the web, so I'm giving you my best guess.
I found some information that said you could transfer still images and Motion-JPEG video clips to your computer using the USB port.
In general you cannot transfer video to your computer using a USB. To transfer video from most camcorders you need a DV (Firewire, also called 1394) cable. You also need some software.
I'm thinking that when you have an SD card in your camcorder there's some way to tell it you wish to record Motion-JPEG clips to the card rather than full video to the tape. If you've created a standard recording I don't think you'll be able to transfer it with USB.
I believe Windows Movie Maker will let you connect to your camera using a DV cable. I used software called Scenalyzer. A full demo is available free of charge at www.scenalyzer.com. The demo will leave a "watermark" on your video. If you like the software you'll need to buy it in order to capture video without the watermark.
If you have any more questions, let me know.

This is not a sarcastic reply - it's genuine. If you're serious about making video, switch to a Mac. I use an XL1 or 2 every day, never have a connection issue. Regards, Nik

I do not know MACs, but a standard 4-pin to 6-pin firewire (IEEE1394) is needed. On Windows XP, plug it in, run Windows Movemaker and you are good to go. By the way, a "DV cable" is a firewire cable.
If your MAC cannot "see" your camcorder, try another firewire device to see if your MAC is the culprit, or drag your camcorder and firewire cable to a friend's PC running Windows XP and see if it works.

SOURCE: Please help me...When I connect
Try playing the tape before connecting up to the mac with the firewire and before loading FCP up. Usually fixes it for me when using either iMovie to import or FCP

exact same thing happening to me. I have always been able to ingest footage no problem.. Firewire basic setting in fcp.. no problems ever. Now this flashing DV IN signal when I connect to the computer and fcp doesnt recognize the camera. too weird. I know its not the cable. I plugged my little panasonic in and no problems.. same settings in fcp.??
