Go to canon's website navigate to its download page for camcorders, then plug in information about your operating system and download the new driver for Vista. Restart your computer, plug in cable and camcorder. Should work.

Additionally if you want clean up your registry, use free Eusing registry fixer to fix most problems. It is a stable product.

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.

Trying to import video from Sony Digital 8mm camcorder and get about 2 minutes into the download and it freezes up. I have a brand new top of the line HP 9400 computer that should handle the Roxio Creator...

Try using windows movie maker software, it comes with windows xp. you can then import the video into Roxio after it is captured. I have used the Roxio Creator 9 and I hated it, always freezing up. I got the Roxio Creator 10 and it works much better. I think the problem you are having is the Roxio 9. I had problems with it and I have 4 Gig of RAM and a daul core 3.0GHZ processor, also a good computer. You may also want to try rebooting your computer right before you do the capture, sometimes that help me with the Roxio 9.

How to get my PC recognize the Panasonic NV-GS15

Solution A: make sure you are using the correct cable for what you are doing (eg USB for webcam and importing photos and Firewire for transferring video footage

most desktops have firewire plug in them but laptops don't usually

to get a firewire plug in a laptop you need a PCMCIA to Firewire Cardbus (ask your local retail store for one or buy one on ebay etc.)

after that put the cardbus in your PCMCIA slot and restart

then go to Windows Movie Maker and press "capture from video device"

hope this helps!

Sony HC40 - Burn DVD w/o Sony PC

Don't worry about the manual. You just need to get a firewire cable (since you have a laptop, you probably need a 4 pin to 4 pin cable, but check the port in your laptop to make sure it is a 4 pin. If the port size is the same as it is in your camcorder, you need a 4pin to 4pin cable). For transferring video to your laptop and burning DVD, use the software which came with your DVD burner. If you do not have one, try Dazzle software, it works well.
