SOURCE: Transfer of video from Panasonic NV-GS50 tape to computer

You will need a firewire card in your PC and firewire cable to connect your camera to the PC. you will also need a software like Windows movie maker which can help you to transfer videos from your camera to the PC.

SOURCE: canon zr500

The ZR500 has a firewire port that is best for tranferring video to your pc, so a firewire cable would be needed -- and you would need a firewire card in your pc to accept it. It might also have a USB port (don't have it in front of me right now). I've never used USB to transfer video, but I think it would work fine.

SOURCE: FireWire for camcorder mini dv

Go to this link. Click on "Frequently Asked Questions" and then click on the appropriate link (#4). Basically, once the firewire cable is connected, make sure that the camcorder is in the playback mode, is turned on, and you see "DV IN" on the LCD. If all that is happening, your computer/software should be able to "see" the camcorder and download the video.

What cable is required to download the recorded video on tape?


To download from the tape (not the memory card) you need a firewire cable, and a computer that has firewire compatibility. Most laptops have this, but desktops may require a firewire card to be installed.

Downloading to computer to burn to a dvd


I have a zr300. You need a firewire connection and a firewire cable to download the contents of your minidv tape for burning. You can not do that with a usb cable. USB cable can only download photos and videos from your memory card not from the tape.

How to transfer mini dv tape to dvd or vcd


you should have a few choices with this model: usb, firewire, composite a/v..

this link will take you to canon's download page for your camera,

the dvmessenger app should let you view your camera on the comp, use it for videoconferencing, and view it online, as well as remotely control it, although it may not let you transfer much.

your camera should have come with an installation cd that included digital video software. if it did not, you will have to contact canon for a replacement cd.

i would recommend downloading the product manual from the above site and checking page 134

in addition you can use the memory card to transfer files via a memory card reader on the pc, these can be picked up inexpensively at most camera and computer stores. your camera however should be fine if you are using windows xp and the usb cable for your camera.

hope this helps,
trin
