Make sure your camera driver is up to date from ACER

Link to downloads for the Acer 5100 laptop

The only connectors on your camcorder are as follows:

1 x microphone
1 x headphones
1 x IEEE 1394 (FireWire/i.LINK)
1 x S-Video output
1 x composite video/audio output
1 x Control-L (LANC)
1 x DC power input

If you have an s-video on your laptop you can connect it with an s-video cable and audio cable (red and white one end, black the other end

I am looking at the computer on line and on the Left View, I see a 4 pin iDDD1394 port. You can use this to connect your camera,

Also, on the rear view you do have a s-video port.

You should have no problem connecting the computer and camcorder.

I have an older canon mini tape camcorder and my mac pro wont recognize it for uploading


You could try the cannon website to see if there are any driver updates for your model. Cannon may have a users forum, which you might be able to pin point the problem there, If that doesn't work try the mac website for updates etc.

This type of camera usually downloads better with a Firewire (DV) connection. Some mini-DV cameras only use the USB connection for stills (if they have one) and can only download video by Firewire. This is because you have to play the tape into the computer, not just copy a file.

Most PCs have a USB port, but no Firewire port. Macs often have a Firewire port but may not have USB. With desktop Windows PCs, you can fit an add-on Firewire interface card. This comes with a driver for the card. If your laptop doesn't have a Firewire socket, then you are probably stuck.

FireWire for camcorder mini dv


Go to this link. Click on "Frequently Asked Questions" and then click on the appropriate link (#4). Basically, once the firewire cable is connected, make sure that the camcorder is in the playback mode, is turned on, and you see "DV IN" on the LCD. If all that is happening, your computer/software should be able to "see" the camcorder and download the video.

Camcorder importing - no manual


This is the same unit I have. Simply connect a 4-pin to 4-pin Firewire cable between the computer and the camera. (Port is under the lens, under a smal rubber cap. Once the connection is made, turn on the camera, and it should appear on your mac as a new fixed drive. Import your files normally from there.

Hope this helps!

My new Imac won't recognize my cannon zr65 camcorder help please.


Some FireWire cameras do not play nice with other FW devices. Try unplugging the LaCie drive and any other FireWire device, then connect the camera directly to the Mac. iMovie should detect it then.

Firewire on Inspiron - Connecting Canon MD 120 camcorder


Browsing over the md120 specs, included should be a software disc for the usb connector, so it shouldn't matter whether you use an adapter or the 4 to 4 cable. This disc will have the drivers and software for using the camera in conjunction with your laptop. Have you tried this download for the camera.
http://software.canon-europe.com/products/0010449.asp

Also check out this link. Towards the bottom under additional features it lists software, drivers and utilities, and at the bottom under supplied accessories it lists application software/usb driver. Go to the store you purchased this at or contact Cannon support and get the disc that was supposed to be included.

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.
