I can not download sony DCR-HC54E mini DV to PC, please assist me in details.


You require a firewire cable to connect to the PC then use Movie Maker to capture the footage.
Cameras use a 4 pin socket and computers can use 4, 6, or 9 pin sockets.
Determine which socket is on the trget computer and buy the necessary cable.
FYI: Most Laptops use 4 pin and most Desktops use 6 pin. Avoid adapters if possible.

For example; if your Desktop computer has a 6 pin socket you buy a 4 to 6 pin firewire cable. Firewire is also called iLink or IEEE 1394.

Canon XL1, firewire capture stopped working after a year. Running Sony Vegas Pro 8, WinXP Pro, HP workstation. Changed firewire card, re-installed Vegas to no avail. Also tested capture on a Mac and it...


Believe it or not, with the Canon XH A1S, the HDMI cable can EASILY fit into the camera whether placed in correctly with the straight edge at the top, or with the straight edge at the bottom. If you insert it the latter way, the camera's internal motherboard will blow when power is applied. DON'T GUESS! Always look carefully to make sure you are inserting it properly. BTW, Canon does NOT mention this anomaly either in their manual or at their website. Learn from my experience!

I have a canon xl1 with a firewire cable to connect to my new mac but cant seem to find the option to upload my film, any help?


The problem has now been solved by the software I have used, if you are using a programme with a capture and log mode this should automatically find the camcorder for you.

Canon XL1 recordings are dark--the room is dark, but there are stage lights..Yet the recording came out extremely dark--what are we rookies missing?


"stage lights" may still not be enough- there should be alow light indicator in the viewfinder (amoung the many things being displayed)- Also, the camera manual should tell you the minimum illumination that the camera will record in (usually listed as LUX or Footcandles, or sometimes in EV), but unfortunately you would want an old fashion light meter to check the light level of the stage ahead of time

I managed to dothis with my Canon MV750i so I know it can be done!

You are correct; the USB cable only transfers pictures from the SD card. To transfer video from your camcorder to a computer you need to use a Firewirecable (also known as IEEE 1394), and you need to have a socket on your computerto plug the Firewire cable into. Macs already have a socket built in butgenerally with PCs you will need to install (or get someone to install for you)a special card with the Firewire socket on it.

I can't explain the whole procedure here but you can getstarted by looking at the following articles on the Canon website. Thefirst one explains what sort of connections can be made on different Canoncamcorders (including the MV730i) and what you can do with them:
http://www.canon.co.nz/products/digital_video_cameras/home/mv730i.aspx

The second briefly explains what hardware and software youwill need, how it goes together, how to make DVDs and so on:

Unfortunately there is no quick, simple answer but I hope thispoints you in the right direction!

MY IEEE 1394 port does not recognise camcoder


Although this post is rather old, I can tell you that the mini 4-pin firewire port is the bane of my existence. The 6-pin port is made rather sturdy with heavily shielded cable. The 4-pin uses the same heavy cable, but does not have the strength to support the cable, if it happens to droop. This causes pins to get slightly bent out of alignment, and upon re-insertion, you can get crushed pins if you are not VERY careful. Examine both your cable end and the port on your camera/deck - you will probably find one or more of the pins have been pushed back. Pray that it's the cable that's dead, and not the port in your camera/deck. I have a Canon XL1 and a Sony DSR-40 with the same problem - crushed pin in the unit's port. I'll have to spend $$$ to get these ports replaced.

firewire adapters only fit into firewire sockets..if you don't have that upgrade, you most likely only have USB ports..

Scrambled footage


if you are captureing through the fire wire port, it could be the port is bad. Just to make sure, see if you can get ahold of a "Blue Box" one of those analog to firewire converter boxes, and see if it comes out clear then. if it does then I am 100% sure that it is the firewire port.

How can i plug with Mac OS DCRHC40E


According to the specifications listed on FixYa, this camcorder has an iLink port (also known as Firewire or IEEE1394). Apple computers have long supported Firewire--indeed, it was the original connection type for the iPod.

I'm assuming you're using a relatively recent version of OS X, say 10.3 or later.

There are two sizes of Firewire socket, and you'll need a cable that suits your devices.  The socket on your camera will be the small, square-ish type; compare this to the one on your Mac. If the socket on your Mac is bigger, you'll need a "4-pin to 6-pin Firewire cable"; if not, you'll need a "4-pin to 4-pin Firewire cable". More details on Firewire, including photos of plugs and sockets, are on Wikipedia at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Firewire

Once connected, you should be able to use Apple iMovie, Final Cut Express, or similar to capture and edit your footage.
