    The GL2 I have will not download the recorded video to my computer when I plug it up, I suspect it has something to do with the firewire port, but I can not figure out what it might be. The Sony Digital 8 works fine on the same port, but not luck on the GL2.

I'm having the same problem. I don't have the disks with the camcorder and Vista is not recognizing nor seeing the camcorder. I'm going to try to download Zoombrowser and see if that makes it work.

    Vista recognized the GL2 when I opened the view screen. That's bizarre. I should have opened it a few hours ago! grrrr.

I have a feeling he was talking about the PHOTO option of the GL2 (flash memory). I couldnt get my camera to work with Vista - would not recognize the camera connected with a usb cable (to transfer photos). Went to Canons site and found they do NOT have drivers for Vista. I took a gamble and downloaded and installed the drivers (XPDVSTr111EN.exe) for XP on my Vista box - and this fixed the issue. I can see and edit the photos on teh flash memory of the GL2 fine now. Hope that helps.

You might want to try an update the driver for the camcorder as well as the software that comes with it. It looks like there is an updated driver on Canon's website.

You need to use a video editing or manipulation program. Check out Windows Movie Maker.

I have a Cannon GL2 and cannot download the driver to my computer off of the software provided. I use a Vista Home Premium operating system and am totaly confounded by the stupidity I have encountered. I...


The driver is incompadible with Windows 7
Lexmark, Sony, & many others have the same problem
Why Windows 7 has this problem? A new programming causes this and it started with the Vista operating sytem before hand
What did Microsoft tell you? Wait for updates from Canon? That is the most likely answer they give everyone I understand
