We've been using this camera to capture video onto our desktops for broadcasting class. For some reason this camera will not turn on. I think the battery may have been dead for some time, but it used to work through the DC adapter. Now the camera won't turn on at all one way or the other. Is it possible it could be completely burned out?

This may be a dumb response, but is the camera receiving power? You can't open the cage without power, and if your battery is dead and the camera isn't plugged in, that could be the problem. My broadcast students make this error a lot.
Drivers are already preloaded for your camcorder as long as you are using Windows XP or Vista. You will need a program to capture the video to your computer. Pinnacle Studio will work for your camcorder.
Once the firewire cable is installed and the camcorder is turned on, pinnacle studio will give you the option to load itself up.
Using the firewire/IEEE cord attach the camera to your computer. If you are using a Mac it should instantly recognize the external camera when you open iSight or what ever utility you are using to communicate. If you are using a Windows based computer open MS Moviemaker and it will recognize the camera as well by selecting capture -- once the camera is recognized you should be able to broadcast with it. If you are using uStream.com sometimes your video capture interferes with the ability to broadcast. In that case hook up the camera using firewire, connect to uStream -- grant uStream permission to capture using the camera then you can see the video in your browser window.
Pinnacle software will recognize the camera installed through a firewire cable once the camera is turned on. Windows movies software doesn't recognize DV cameras. You may be able to get capture to work if you go to Microsoft.com and download the Windows Media 9.0 Development Kit. I believe DV input is a capture option.
There has to be a 3rd party program installed to get it to recognize it.
First you need to uplaod your video to your PC using Microsoft movie maker.
1. Capture from video device
connect your device by cable USB, Firewire
2. Edit your video
You can put Titles, effects etc...
3. Finish the movie by saving on your PC or Burn to your CD
