Question about Canon HV20 HDV Digital Camcorder
When I connect the HV20 to the computer by firewire, the computer does not detect it. I tried it on a computer with Vista, as well as a computer with XP.
Both computers have Pinnacle Studio 11 Ultimate.
Do you have another PC or laptop then pleasetry to connect it on the other laptop and see if you face the same problem.If you get the same problem again then the fault is with your camera and you will have to get it repaired or replaced if it is still under warranty.
If you don't face the problem then the problem is with your first PC/laptop which you tried to connect.Do one thing take a backup of your Pc/laptop and then do a system restore.
Doing a system restore it will restore your Pc/laptop to a previuis time when it worked fine and also make sure you don't connect the cam into it..
START>ALL PROGRAMS>ACCESSORIES>SYSTEM TOOLS>SYSTEM RESTORE
Another few points:
Make sure your using the right vista drivers for the cam on your Pc/laptop.Also try reinstalling them again..

Try reinstalling the driver for the camera...
and vista doesnt support most of the new cameras drivers..
also try with other compatible camera drivers....

Please check the firewire cable, maybe the cable is faulty.
