Question about Canon ZR200 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
First of all you need an application on your computer such as Avid that you can download video to.
I used mac a long time ago so I only know Avid is supported on mac's on windows XP professional you get a free package called film maker anyway you must have an application on your PC that ingests Video.
Once you have that look around your camera for a small output connector that looks like two rectangles on there side it's called a 1394 fire wire port on small cameras like yours they are 4 pin on larger ones they are 6 pin.
Now on your computer you should have the same fire wire socket Laptops 4 pin Workstations normally 6 pin you need to connect a fire wire cable between the camera and the computer.
Once connected the computer wizard should see a new device and try and load the driver if it can’t find one you will have to go to the cannon website and download one for your camera, it's unlikely that automatic searching for one will find one as auto search only goes to the Microsoft site.
Once you have an application and the fire wire is connecting the camera to the computer you will be able to import the video from your camera and edit it.
Being a broadcast editor I know small systems can be tricky let me know how you get on and if I can help further I will. Best of luck
Hope this helps.
