SOURCE: Where Do I Connect My AC Adapter and USB cord on the camcorder???

There should be a cover on the front of the camera (where the lens is) that pops open. All the ports are in here.

How to convert .MOD file to mpg, avi, wmv and others?

If you got a JVC camcorder, or Panasonic camcorder or Canon MOD camcorder, you would have probably encountered such issue--- what to do with the MOD/TOD files----the God forsaken video format? And you want to convert the recorded .MOD file type to mpeg, avi, mkv, flv, mp4, wmv or whatever more common, so that you can put them on Youtube, Myspace, Google video and Hulu later on to share the camcorder video with your friends or more people? And there is another headache thing is that most major video editing suites seem to unwillingly accept the MOD/TOD format. Even windows video maker, I have to say it's too complicated to use

Someone successfully made it simply by changing the extension from .mod to mpg, but for most people, they just failed only to find there is no audio after the extension is changed, or the changed one doesn’t allow you to import these files into Windows movie maker, not to mention upload some video to Youtube.com or Facebook.

any alternativs? There is a very simple program that convert .mod NOT ONLY to mpg but many others like avi, mkv, flv, mp4, wmv, rm, rmvd, mov, dv, mg2 and swf. MOD converter is the one shoot all the trouble. This excellent mod conversion tool is not just a converter but also a video editing tool. From now on, with the MOD converter, you can enjoy your mod video on many media player, even on portable devices like blackberry, Gphone, PSP, Creative Zen,etc.

Things will be easier if you take a moment to finish reading the Step by Step on how to convert .mod to mpg, avi, wmv and others

Step by Step

Canon vixia hv 30 not recognized by computer


This camcorder uses USB for pictures only. To access pictures, plug in USB cable, set the camcorder to Play and to Memory Card.

To transfer video you need a firewire cable and card. Actual cable will depend on connection your computer has, typically it will be something like this: FireWire_cables.jpg

Additionally, to transfer video you will need a video capture software and codecs, unless the software has the codecs (Nero does). Unfortunately all free video editing software I tried was unable to deal with HD. I had various levels of success with Windows Movie Makver, Ulead and Nero.

You may want to record video in non-HD, and see if you are able to capture that. If your computer can capture that but not HD, and you have the codecs installed, you will need to investigate your computer.

If all you need is a codec, here is a good free candidate: K-Lite Mega Codec Pack


It is of course very frustrating that Canon would include nothing with the camcorder to assist users with video caputure.

TRANSFERRING VIDEO FOOTAGE TO COMPUTER


Hello,
you can access via USB only SD card on your camcoder.
The only way to transfer from the tape is via Firewire (IEE 1394) . You should have this port on your PC or laptop, if not you can buy external firewire card .

Canon ZR950 video transfer problem


Greetings reubnick,

Unfortunately, the Canon Z950 only offers transfer to your pc via firewire (Firewire/IEEE 1394 DV Terminal). Therefore your computer would need to have a firewire port.

One other option is to utilize a standalone system to plug your camera in to transfer video. Here an example of one unit: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=8470923&productCategoryId=abcat0504007&type=product&tab=1&id=1184768699303#productdetail

Re: Canon Digital Video Camcorder ZR70 MC DC 7.4V


hello,

As your camera only has analogue outputs, you will need to buy a video capture card for your PC, such as those made by Leadtek. As mentioned by Tela above, there are also external USB-connected devices that do the same job.

Make sure your PC exceeds the minimum spec or you may lose information during capture. I would recommend at least 1GHz processor.

Hope that helps.

Uploading video to Mac


You can't transfer videos through USB. You will need a Firewire 6-pin cord and use it to connect from your MAC to the Camcorder. Only then you can transfer videos.

USB Port


To transfer video to your computer from the ZR100, you will need to connect the camera to the computer via the firewire interface. The ZR100 does not have a USB interface.

Can't transfer video to PC


I could not find the manual for this model on the web, so I'm giving you my best guess.

I found some information that said you could transfer still images and Motion-JPEG video clips to your computer using the USB port.

In general you cannot transfer video to your computer using a USB. To transfer video from most camcorders you need a DV (Firewire, also called 1394) cable. You also need some software.

I'm thinking that when you have an SD card in your camcorder there's some way to tell it you wish to record Motion-JPEG clips to the card rather than full video to the tape. If you've created a standard recording I don't think you'll be able to transfer it with USB.

I believe Windows Movie Maker will let you connect to your camera using a DV cable. I used software called Scenalyzer. A full demo is available free of charge at www.scenalyzer.com. The demo will leave a "watermark" on your video. If you like the software you'll need to buy it in order to capture video without the watermark.

If you have any more questions, let me know.
