My laptop was unable to find the software to download my photos from my canon zr45mc. I closed the window at the end of the process and now it will not recognize the new hardware. How do I fix this and how do I download the photos? I'm kinda new at this. HELP!!

Hello, I just bought a canon zr45 today off a friend without the owners manual. I had the same problem. It is flashing because it needs a new 3 volt lithium battery. This is a back up battery. It is located underneath the regular battery pack. Take the regular battery pack off and you will see where it goes. I changed mine and it doesn't do it anymore. It shouldn't show up on your recordings. It didn't on mine. Also, you can download an owners manual for free off the internet. Just key in canon zr45 owners manual and you will see links that will take you there. I hope this helps.
Don't buy it. Buy a real "digital" camcorder with a hard drive. You want one that you can simply upload video from camcorder to your computer using USB. This piece of **** needs firewire cable and to "record" to your computer using software. Don't use mini dvds, they are stupid. Just get a camcorder with a hard drive.
If you are talking about downloading the still images recorded on the SD card, you can find drivers for Windows up to Windows 2000 here. (Windows XP and Windows Vista are not supported.) The best thing to do would be to get an SD card reader and upload your still images directly from the card to the computer -- no driver required.
If you are talking about downloading video, that is done through Firewire. The only driver needed is the one that supports the firewire card on your computer.
