The mechanical part of the camera is gone. You better replace the camera with a new one.

How can I download video shot on the cassette of a Canon MV530i to either the SD card in the camera or directly on to my windows 8 laptop

Tape video recorders are unfortunately old technology. The SD card is probably only for still pictures. I doubt if a Windows 8 laptop is designed to accommodate it either in hardware or software. If you bought the camera new, you were probably supplied with a disk containing download/capture software. Video sent to a tape is not a fully digital file in the sense that it is not read by computers and has to be captured when you play it back into the computer and turned into a video file. See if you can get a Firewire attachment or adapter -possibly into the laptops HDMI socket. The usb on the camcorder is probably just a charging point. If not, ask a friend with a desktop computer if he would be prepared to fit a firewire card -about 12UKP in UK, and capture it for you on their machine. Via Firewire, even the most basic editing suites have a capture function, and you can save the video as MP4 or AVI etc. The alternative is to take the tapes to a commercial transfer outlet -in the UK Timpsons the shoe repair people advertise this service, and they will put everything on a dvd for you.

Sd card 4gb error

Your new 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. The MV530i works with SD cards, 2GB and smaller. It will not work with SDHC cards.

Canon Mini DV MV530i: When the cover is fully opened (while holding the button) the cassette is not ejected from the cassette compartment whilst the "EJECT" word blinks in red on the screen. The user...

Tape mechanism problems are quite complicated but they can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it’s not a user serviceable problem and will need to be diagnosed by a qualified service technician.

My name is Rick and I’m a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I’m semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.
