XP will not recignize my ZR200 as a valid input device
I have connected my Canon ZR200 to my Dell Vostro via a multi-usb adaptor (usb on one end, firewire, usb, etc on the other). I have tried both the Firewire and the USB camcorder connection. XP recognizes a "generic usb hub" when the camera is connected, but when I open Movie Maker or Roxio, they both tell me that no capture device is connected to the computer, even when the camera is connected and playing. Any ideas?

Re: XP will not recignize my ZR200 as a valid input...
On your computer, go to <start><my computer>. Right click on My computer and select "properties". Select "hardware" and then "device manager". On the drop down menu, select the hub in question and be sure it is not "disabled". Also be sure that the power options on this hub "never expire", as Windows default sets a given time for this....accordianman

check that the lan connection isn't disabled.
go into control panel>network connections.
I would disable it and then re-enable it, that sometimes works. if there is no lan connection showing then you need to download it onto a usb stick from the dell website and install it on the vostro. Product Support Dell US
No. The Canon USA web site says the Canon DW-100 has a USB terminal and works with "USB 2.0 Hi-Speed (with compatible Canon camcorders only)." In other words, the Canon DW-100 burner works only with Canon's USB 2.0 camcorders. I have a Canon ZR200. The ZR200 has Firewire 400 digital video output, not USB 2.0 output. The USB port on the ZR200 is ONLY for still images. Video will not and cannot be output through the USB port on the ZR200. (Page 121 in the ZR200 manual mentions using the USB port on your camcorder for transferring still JPEG images to your computer.) You need a DVD burner with "DV Input" (also called Firewire 400 or IEEE 1394) to hook up your camcorder to burn Mini-DV tapes onto DVD. The Sony VRDMC10 Stand Alone DVD Recorder/Player has DV Input. The ZR200 camcorder did not come with a Firewire cable, but you can buy one at any electronics store or at a cheaper price online. Make sure that you get the right kind of Firewire cable, 4-pin to 4-pin or 4-pin to 6-pin, whatever the DVD burner you choose requires. (Your ZR200 has a 4-pin DV port on the camera's end.)
USB 2.0 Hi-Speed (with compatible Canon camcorders only)
Use a computer with Internet access.
Access the manufacturer's web-site: http://support.dell.com
Enter your model-number: 1015.
Do a search.
Select your Operating System (XP? Vista? 7?)
Download the device-driver(s).
Copy them to a USB memory-stick.
Transport the memory-stick to your Dell computer, and connect it.

You don't write how exactly is your printer connected - if I remember correctly, HP LJ 4P doesn't have a USB connector, and Vostro doesn't have the parallel port available. So how did you connect it? Is it via some USB to parallel adaptor, or via JetDirect network card in the printer? There are multiple separate issues that may be applicable in either case...
Does in system hardware configuration the network adapter show up with a driver attached to it?
Recover disk/partitions not only includes windows but all further necessary drivers for such PC then windows provides. Graphic adapater, soundcard, networkadapter.
If there is a unrecognized networkk adaptor there type 1394 you should get to know which driver it needs.
This is why I dislike Dell PC's allways. You own one, they own you together with Microsoft
I hope the camera you are talking about is ZR200 Mini DV.
As per its specifications.
It has a firewire/DV port.
follow these steps.
I assume you are using this cable.
I am not sure how you used the firewire cable before.
So, try this.
Connect one end of the cable to computer and other to the camera.
Switch on the camera and keep it in play/ edit mode (not in shooting mode).
When you connect the other end to the computer,
There should be a popup asking you what to do.
If there is no popup,
Open Windows Movie maker and import video from device.
You should see the camera in it.
Hope it works.
