    Thanks for the advice, I now have another fault where the camera will not switch on to the camera mode. Its fine in vcr but when I move the selector to the camera setting I get nothing, no power what so ever.




    What do you think?


    Thanks again.

Sounds like the DV Port has suffered a short circuit. Unfortunately, the only way to fix this, is to take it to a reputable camera repair shop, or send it to cannon if it is under warranty.

How do I transfer the footage I recorded to PC?


The USB cable is only to download still images recorded on the memory card, using the software that came with the camera. To download video, you need to connect to a computer with a Firewire cable, and have video editing software on your computer to communicate with the camera.

I have xm2 canon, and I can't find the night vision mode on it.


I do not believe XM2 or GL2 does not have night vision mode. You may achieve little using video gain control. We all know Sony has the night vision modes which have been popular feature. James
