When you plug the cable in it shuts the screen off to conserve energy since you are going to plug it into a external source.

You don't need any special software.

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, despite what I said first, you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

How do I turn the audio record level off so that I can record an image without sound?

If you don't want sound and have a mini jack cable, you might be able to plug into the mike jack on the side of the camera.
I have an external 2 input audio mixer on my camera. It connects through that input. If I do not have a mike plugged into my mixer and the mixer is plugged in, I will not get audio. You could also maybe try turning your audio levels all the way down.

Please confirm where the place of cable camera movie watchin tv

It is called, usually, the A/V Jack (for Audio/Visual Jack). It is a small, round hole, that takes the small, cylindrical barrel plug (2.5 mm plug). The other end will have RCA plugs, one for the video, and two for the audio input (stereo) of the TV. It is usually on the back of the camcorder, and usually marked A/V. Hope this helps.

If your camcorder came with a usb cable then plug it into the slot then select DISK mode on the camera, you will then see a removable disk in my computer.

If you are going to use the camera as a webcam then you should contact polaroid.

Strange Audio Problem, Please Help if you Can. Going Cuckoo

t could be that the camera has an A/V jack. A/V jacks are 4 segment connectors whereas most stereo cables are three segment connectors. When a three segment jack is plugged in to an A/V port, you only get one channel of audio. That means your cable should have three rca plugs. Two for the audio and one for the video. I haven't been able to find A/V cables or adaptors in stores. The camera probably should have come with one. I had to special order them on the internet.

Camcorder video transfer formats

The IEEE 1374 is the way to go. It is fast, and it is digital. Therefore, the video and audio will not be degraded in the transfer. The others are analog interfaces.
