Question about Sony Handycam DCR-HC40 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I have reinstalled the software two times - everything seems to be working, but the computer doesn't recognize the camera. It doesn't come up as a choice and I can't copy any of the video clips to the computer. It used to work, but now is not working.
Ok I don't like to use blogs that much but after I spent 2 complete days trying to fix a similar problem I decide to try to help someone else that may have the same problems.
I have a new canon HX A1 camcorder I was trying to transfer my videos to my computer but it was impossible. Every time I tried i got a message saying that no device is connectet to the computer.
I call Dell we spent 2 hours trying to fix this but nothing. I chnage registry programs and still.
So I decide to call Canon to see what was the problem. Wow that lady fix my problem in two minutes.
The problem is that some programs (in my case I have Adobe premier cs3, movie maker, and others) are not able to accept High Definition signal. I culdn't believe that cs3 cant handle HD but that was the problem. You can change the settings in the camcorder to send standard signal and you'll see the camcorder is recognized by the computer right away.
I hope this can be helful to anyone with similar problems
If you get any questions you can contact me.
to change the setting; put your camcorder in VCR mode and go to menu/signal setup
