Question about Canon ZR85 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
Did everything according to manual. I plug in the camcorder hoping to upload the video to MovieMaker and the camera is not recognized as a device from my new computer system with Windows 7. This is a new camera to me and has never been connected to any system before. I have been to the Canon site and downloaded the driver.

Firewire and USB are not the same things
You will need a Firewire host adapter installed in your PC - such as Q-Tec PCI card (IEEE 1394 compatible) which comes with software / drivers

The Camcorder will flash the DV IN message as soon as the i.LINK/Firewire cable is connected to the Camcorder.
If you are getting the DV IN message then it indicates that the Camcorder recognize the connection.
You can use any video capturing software like Windows Movie Maker to transfer the video from the Computer.
Refer this link for the instruction to transfer the video to the Computer using i.LINK cable.
If you are not getting the DV IN message as soon as the i.LINK cable is connected with the Camcorder then the issue may be with either the Camcorder or with the i.LINK cable.
Try resetting the Camcorder or try with different i.LINK cable. Locate the RESET button behind the LCD screen of the Camcorder. (You will be able to locate the RESET button by opening the LCD Screen. The Camcorder should be switched ON when you reset the unit. Press the RESET button using a sharp-pointed object).
NOTE: Resetting the Camcorder will reset the settings of the Camcorder to the factory settings including date and time. It will not delete any data saved in the Camcorder.
If the issue still persists after resetting the Camcorder and with different i.LINK cable then your Camcorder requires service to resolve the issue.
