When you connected the camera to the pc thru the firewire cable, does the pc initially recognize it by popping a notification from the lower right corner of your monitor? saying like a new hardware was found? If yes, you just have to install the driver for the camera. Or browse the contents thru the windows explorer and going to your camera's drive.

If it cannot initially detect the camera even when the camera is turned on, then you may want to change to plug in another usb port or your camera. By the way, can the port recognize other devices such as usb thumbdrive?

Please let me now of details so that we can isolate the problem further and do a one by one step.

Computer cannot detect camera. Is there a setting I need to change?


usually there is software installed that you use to run the camera on the PC. Uninstall it. DO NOT have camera connected. Install software AND DRIVER FIRST. Then reboot and connect camera. it should then find new hardware and you can operate as before.

I cant conect in pc my web cam sony dcr hc21e handycam i have windows 7


Right, well your problem is very common, it is due to Windows 7 (I have it) not having very many drivers built-into it for cameras, and my own Sony camera driver is not in 7 either ok. So you are going to have to download your films from camera to PC with a cable called Firewire because USB cable wont work without windows drivers, firewire will.
Lets just hope your PC if it is not old has a Firewire socket at rear, as older PC wont have one.

Firewire worked once but not anymore...Canon XHA1


Solution? Maybe, but PC's vary greatly. Pass it on if it works for you. If Win-XP. Device manager. Un-install IEE1394. Close & Restart. Let the system restore the 1394 then try to reconnect the unit, cable to the PC first, then to the powered down camera. Power up the cam. What are you using to ingest?

UNABLE TO DETECT VIDEO CAMERA


Hi,
You need to use firewire cable. USB wont work.

Get a 4 pin firewire cable and connect to the PC.
Switch on the Cam.
Open Windows Movie Maker and import video from device.


4 pin firewire would look like this:

Which cable do I need to conect my camcorder to pc


if you need a visual on it, there is a video on www.HandBookLive.com under Electronics. The example is Belkin IEEE 1394 cable (Firewire and I-Link compatable) and it connects digital camera to a laptop.

Many Camcorder users have faced problems while connecting their camcorder to their PC. One of the most common problems is ?no activity? after connecting the camcorder to the PC. The found new hardware wizard does not run and fails to detect the camcorder. This can mean two things. Either the DV port on the Camcorder is not working or the FireWire cable is faulty. Try using a different FireWire cable. If the camera is still not detected by the PC, try connecting it to a different PC. If the Camcorder is still not detected, then your camcorders DV port is most likely at fault. Confirming that the FireWire Port on you PC is working fine You can check the status of the FireWire port from under Device Manager. To access the Device Manager, Right Click on My Computer and then click on Properties. Select the Hardware tab and click on Device Manager. If you cannot see the FireWire port in the list, then it is not inserted properly into the motherboard. If you see a Yellow exclamation mark, then you need to install the drivers, which are usually bundled with a Floppy or CD with the FireWire card.
