Question about Canon ZR60 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

My Canon won't connect to my new iMac running Leopard

I've tried a new cable (only one firewire port to try). It seems to get a very brief connection where it identifies and brings up a brief image and then I get an error message that says there was a problem with the connection.

    Getting no camera connected message when it IS connected to my G5 iMac.  When the camera was recognized I kept getting a No Camera Control message.  The Fire Wire seems to be in good shape.  Leopard 10.5.1.

I've seen that before. It can be a loose connection (cables can be tempramental). I've changed what appear to be perfectly good cables, and which work fine on another computer, with a different cable and it worked. Also, some computers seem to care about sequence. Close the program with the camera connected, and on, and reopen it. Sometimes that works.

Hi, I've always been able to connect my Canon MV4i MC camcorder to my computer (Windows XP) via the Firewire port. However, I've just bought a new computer (Windows 7) which has no Firewire port....


Why have you bought a 'new' computer with such an outdated operating system ? Have you an available expansion slot on the motherboard to install a Firewire card ?

I have tried to connect my Canon XM2 to my IMac via firewire, but it is not 'seen' by IMovie, FCE or FCP, so I can't capture anything. Thanks


Open the System Profiler on the Mac and establish if the camera is connected to the Mac's firewire BUS. If not, try another cable and also test is the camera's firewire port is working. It's either a cable or socket issue. Some cameras require that the menu of the camera be set to output over firewire, check this as well.

Have a canon mx700 printer. Its connected to a imac on snow leopard via usb. Ever since it was updated to new os version. It doesn't recognize the printer. I have searched online for the correct drivers...


First try a new USB cable and swapping ports. Make sure other USB devices work.

Software and drivers are here: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/pixma_mx_series/pixma_mx700#DriversAndSoftware (select OS from the drop-down menu then look for the notation of version 10.6). This site also has a firmware update for certain of these printers. Use the update with care, sometimes they will make a printer completely unusable.

I hope this helps.

SCSI to USB Cable or Converter for Astra 2400S Scanner?


You need a Firewire/ SCSI adapter. Mine is a Belkin F5U541. Then simply connect a SCSI cable from the scanner to the adapter & a Firewire cable from the adapter to your Mac. I'm using my old Umax Astra 2400S w/ a G5 iMac running OSX 10.6.7. I had to upgrade my old copy of VueScan, however, to run on Snow Leopard

I have a Canon FS100 Digital Video Camcorder. I am attempting to download some video on to my iMac, but then I select "Connect To Camera" I get the message "No Camera Was Found". I have the camera plugged...


The computer is no longer detecting the camcorder for several reasons. It could be the ports on the computer, it could be the cable that you're using to connect the camcorder to the iMac, or it could be the camcorder itself.

Try connecting the camcorder into different USB or FireWire port of the iMac.

Try using different cable.

Try connecting the camcorder into different computer to test the device.

If all else fails, power cycle the camcorder by turning it off and remove the battery for about 10 minutes. Then turn it back on. Otherwise, contact the manufacturer for second opinion.

Hope these helps and have a great day!

Ultralite MK3 issues


The OS is now 10.12.3
An OS update may help. Unless it used to work on Snow leopard but now doesn't on Yosemite or newer. Apple will say that it is up to the third party software manufacturers to keep up to date. Arrogant or what!

Cannot download video, only Card pictures


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.

Canon camcorders use DV or firewire cables. If you have a connections for that on your iMac all you need is a firewire cable.
