Cant download driver for mini dv camcorder mv901

    Are you talking about downloading the video from the MV901? If so, there is no driver for the camcorder itself. The video is downloaded through a Firewire (IEEE 1394) cable. If your computer came with a Firewire port, it already has the driver you need. The other item you need is a software application loaded on your computer to which can process and edit digital video.



    I'm not sure if the MV901 has an SD card for storing still photos. The closest US model to the MV901 is the ZR500, which does not have an SD card. If you have an SD card, you should be able to download still photos through a USB cable directly to a computer with Windows XP or higher or Mac OS X, without a driver.

The only way to get your Recorded videos from your canon MV901 is to get a cable called Firewire IEEE 1394 cable (buy it on Ebay, original cable coast 25 punds)however there is one big problem with that cable, most of computers dosent have the port for it, so first check your Pc if it has the right port for that cable before buying it!

There is another cable for Mv901 called USB, al of the Pc's have the port for it and it coast less that the Firewire IEEE 1394 cable, but again there is one issue, My pc cant find the correct driver for it and i cannot download a propper driver from anywhere... So i suggest the USb is kind of useless because you cant get a friver for it.

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.

Samsung vp-d87di camcorder How can I download a tape to my pc(XP os). Installed drivers etc off samsung cd. Tried a firewire - usb cable only get message "no memory". Any help appreciated


i am now facing the same problem but i found that i need to buy a mini DV cable to connect from the camera to the computer, the USB connection to the computer only allows you to transfer digital images from the camera that you have stored on the memory stick which you may not have inserted in the camera as the computer indicated to you

Panasonic NV-GS10B mini DV camcorder. Cassette will not load into camcorder. Mechanism closes OK without cassette.


Seems to have been a random fault. Now OK, but for how long? This camcorder has given nothing but trouble. Any further nonesense and it will be destroyed.
