If it ain't compatible, it ain't compatible. Compatibility is not something that can be bolted on afterwards - replace the camcorder

SOURCE: Can not load mini DV in my camcorder

I have the same problem. Let's face it, this canon camera is crap. I've put maybe 20 hours on it since I bought it new. I bought two of them by the way. One of them developed a problem with the microphone - $150. The other won't let me insert a tape any more and it's not because of the glide path. I can cover the sensor with my finger (simulate a tape in the carriage and it will not close, then flashes an error to remove the tape. I've tried many different tapes. Something else is telling the camera not to close if it senses a tape in the carriage. I also have the problem with the zoom going crazy. I have to tap on the side of the lid to make something connect before the zoom returns to normal.

SOURCE: 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.

Hi, I've always been able to connect my Canon MV4i MC camcorder to my computer (Windows XP) via the Firewire port. However, I've just bought a new computer (Windows 7) which has no Firewire port....


Why have you bought a 'new' computer with such an outdated operating system ? Have you an available expansion slot on the motherboard to install a Firewire card ?

How can i download the contents of my mini tape onto the pc ?


you don't convert the files, you just downlod them via a firewire comnnection.

If you have a mini dv (cassette) camcorder....
Your dv camcorder needs a firewire connection (ieee 1394) in order to download video, your PC probably did not come with a firewire port, so you will have to buy one and install it, since most computers (except possibly brand new) don't come with a firewire port, your camcorder did not come with a firewire cord so you have to purchase a cord too. Your camcorder did come with a USB cord and that is used for downloading stills from your camcorder. Make sure your camera is in playback mode.
Open your editing program and choose the capture mode.

The fine print in your manual makes reference to firewire (ieee 1394) connection....


thanks.

Can get mt canon zr500 camcorder to get reccognized on my laptop.. i have windows vista on my laptop...i'm trying to transfer my mini dv tapes on my canon zr500 to my computer..what do i have to do?


You have to use a firewire connection in order to transfer your videos. The cambera will not transfer the videos through the usb ports. There is no specific driver for Vista, and this isn't a driver issue. Use your firewire port and cable, and you should be fine.
Good luck,and hope this helps.

How do i connect my canon GL1 to My desktop computer?


Do you have a firewire cable? You should be able to use Windows Movie Maker to import footage as long as you have it connected via firewire.

Hope this helps!
