Suggestions:
(best to worst)
1. Use a "Y" USB cable with that drive.
2. Use a shorter USB cable.
3. Use the new cables with the canon
4. Use a 2.0 hub

The drive should have come with a "split" USB cable (USB "Y" cable). The drive requires a "data" and a "power" connection to your computer.
Get one at Radio Shack, Best Buy, Office Depot/Max... ($10)... or Dollar store ($1.09)

How can I connect my camera to my TV to view images?


That depends on your camera brand and model. If Canon, you will need to use a mini-HDMI cable. You cannot connect to a TV with your standard USB 2 cord supplied with the camera.

I cannot connect the camera to the PC to download video from a tape in the camera. I have been to Windows websites, Canon websites, there are supposedly no drivers to download, the Canon Zoom Browser EX...


I can't see the other solutions you mention.

This camera requires a Firewire (DV or IEEE1394) connection to download videos from tape. That is all there is to it. Some mini-DV cameras will download by USB cable, but this one is not one of them. The USB connection is only usable to download stills from a memory card in the camera in this model.

The same is true of cameras made by other companies such as Sony and Samsung. Some models will download over USB cables but other will only work over Firewire.

What can I find a usb cord for this camcorder? What size fits this one?


Hello

OK, firstly, the DATA USB cable you need for this specific model is an USB 2 Mini-B 5pin cable.

You will be able to buy this specific cable at any computer, camera or electric store near you for about $5 - $10.

I really hope this can be of help.

Let me know if you need any further assistance.

Kind regards

I have a maxtor mini one touch 160gb external gard drive. i have tried to plug it in with this usb cord (i got a new one because i lost the original one) it is making a beeping noise and the power light...


ou have a usb controller board that is malfunctioning and it or the case for the usb hard drive needs to be replaced.
the power regulator that is built into the usb controller is not working therefore the usb logic circuit cannot transmit the signal to the PC viia the USB port and will not recognize the device. You can order or purchase a new case that will accommodate the hard drive from your local computer store.

I need help


The card should be an SD/MMC type.

Some easy choices:
1) Buy this little adaptor
http://cgi.ebay.com/SDHC-SD-USB-2-0-Memory-Card-Reader-2GB-4GB-8GB-16GB-/320499613452?cmd=ViewItem&pt=PCC_Drives_Storage_Internal&hash=item4a9f43ff0c

you can pay fixed price of 99c, shipped, or you can bid one one of the auctions starting at $0.01 shipped. (I have bought 5 individually from china, for under $1 IN TOTAL, and all were sent is seperate packages). Just look for a vendor with reasonable feedback. The device autoinstalls drivers in XP (and above).

2) buy the cable
http://cgi.ebay.com/Mini-usb-2-0-B-5PIN-CABLE-MP3-MP4-Camera-phone-/130398828838?cmd=ViewItem&pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item1e5c603926
again, 99c fixed price, or from 0.01 at auction.

Hope this helps

I have a missing usb cable for vivicam 8400


Consider NOT using the USB connection.
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Picasa.

Computer cannot detect camera at all!


This works for Windows98

1. Uninstall the Canon camera software.
2. Search for "Canon" in the registry. Delete ALL references associated with Canon camera in the registry. Just uninstalling the software will not work. Do not delete any other references to Canon products (printers, etc).
3. Re-install the Canon camera software.

I've had to do this several times. Works every time.
